I had been wanting a roadster for sometime to take down the pacific coast highway. I began shopping a little over a month ago and hands down, the s2000 far outweighs the 350Z, Z3, Z4, Audi TT, and any American made convertible. The vTec kicks in and you feel it snap you back in the seat. The performance and reliability are second to none. To top that off, the styling is one off. Few people recognize this car and many ask about it. 240 HP in a 2800 lb car is simply amazing. Simply put, this car is the four wheeled brother of the Honda RR motorcycle series. I will not part with it, and am planning on getting another when I am done with this one. Plus, you can buy the hardtop!
This transmission exceeds all previous standards held by the SMG Benzes and the M series BMWs. Hardtop convertible available. All controls within a hands reach of the wheel. Power top takes five seconds to raise and lower and there are absolutely NO leaks.
Sixth gear needs to be a bit taller. When cruising down the road at 72, you are at exactly 4,000 rpms. It can be a bit noisy, but there is power to burn. As far as cabin comforts, the lighter is place directly where your elbow hits it when shifting. BETTER ADVERTISING, This car ROCKS.
