2000 Honda S2000 2dr Convertible


This car is fun to drive but not when it is sitting in the driveway with a need of major engine repair. The reason, the early years have a bad flow of oil. Not quite sure why but apparently the Europeans caught on to this and fixed the problem early on. This car sucks oil. Honda dealerships need to tell people this when purchasing. Honda also needs to make others aware of this situation. Low oil in any engine is a bad thing. Especially when the oil light never comes on to warn the driver.

The oil warning light is there to warn you about low oil pressure, not low oil level. If you waited until you were so low on oil that the warning light came on then you should probably sell your car and get a bicycle. You are supposed to check your oil regularly especially in a car that revs to 9000 and is known for consuming some oil.
