2002 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Very tight inside, in fact it is close to being uncomfortable. Because of the high revving engine and convertible top, this car is very loud inside. The car is fun to drive on curvy roads but you have to keep the rpms high to enjoy the vtec engine. This car is quick, but does not feel like it due to the lack of torque on this vehicle. Quality is typical honda, so no disappointment there.


Favorite Features

Handling, quality

more torque, better designed interior, more quiet

2002 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Overall the car is great. However, you got to watch out for the transmission. Not built for the power of the car. Lots of recalls on the transmission, and Honda is not supportive of issues with the transmission because of the numerous problems with it. Other than that, it drives great, looks great!


Favorite Features

Handling is great! The car is great for a hot day with the top down.


Suggested Improvements

Better service from American Honda and a real tranmission would do this car alot of justice.

Review

only for the sadist on anything longer than a 15 minute trip no heated mirrors uncomfortable seats no concept of sound deadening (don't try more than 35 with a cell phone even with top up) Quick if revved right/dog if not (153 ft lb of torque even though 240 horse) Ever wonder why you see so many of these advertized used even though only 5000 of these made per year? Turfed this one out for vette, lost my shorts on it but my best descision with this car was cutting it loose.


Suggested Improvements

More torque please. Insulated top seat supports get a real radio sound deadening materials rear window and defroster heated mirrors car has no trunk, get rid of spare tire and use run flat tires like on vette on second thought scrap it all together Look at the Vette

Review

When I got in the cockpit I first got a positive impression of the car, but given time, other things came to my attention. The Car's performance would satisfy me if the price was around $25,000 because let's face it: 240 horses isn't extreme power by anybody's standards. I was dissappointed by the car's lack of power more than anything, although other aspects of performance were better.


Favorite Features

RWD and manual trans. is a good start.


Suggested Improvements

Lack of torque (153 is absolutely pathetic) $36,000 will buy a Cobra, which has all the same features. There is really no reason to spend your money on this. Learn from my mistakes.

Review

The S2000 is a fun car, but seriously lacks in comfort. If you into speed and can handle a 2 seater this is your car, but you may want to rethink road trips in it.


Favorite Features

body style/convertable


Suggested Improvements

more comfortable seats
