2000 Honda S2000 2dr Convertible

Review

At least the 2000 and 2001 model have had a series of electrical and mechanical issues. Oil starvation, oil consumption, ECU failure, spark plugs backing out to name a few. Serious issues with bent valves as well. The problems are mostly quality control and design issues (some are driver error). Some of the problems lead to catastrophic engine failure. Honda is starting to deny valid warranty claims for technicalities. Engine repair is extremely costly due to lack of aftermarket parts and low quantites. s2ki.com for other testimonial.

Best Features

9k redline. Great looks.

Worst Features

Honda's response to warranty issues related to design and quality control. No GPS (available in Europe and Japan). Spartan interior. Stereo cover hits knees. 2000 and 2001 stereos were pitiful.
