Review

This is my 2nd S2000 and it's just as reliable as my first. (It was a 2002) I drive it hard every day and it's still as tight as ever. The super quick steering (13.8:1) and driving position along with the best transmission feel in any manual production car make this quite the impressive ride. Under 6000 RPM it's perfectly fine around town and to get the acceleration you just need to use the delicious transmission. Every thing is tightly screwed together, the top never leaks, the car feels very stiff, especially for a convertible. Brake pedal feel is firm and the stopping distances are excellent. This car doesn't need VSA: it's called your right foot and steering wheel!

Makes Driving Fun Again

I just love my Honda S2000! I thought the thrill of driving was one of those things that you lose over time. Turns out it's just making sure you have the right car. The S2000 is a sporty 6 speed manual that turns head and garners lots of compliments. The hardtop is easily removed and replaced. I'm very impressed by the control panel as everything is well laid out in fingertip reach. No more taking your eyes off the road to change stations. Overall a great car especially if you can find one slightly used and get a good price.

Hey all just wanted to tell my experience. I just rolled my s2000 this past friday and this car saved my life. It does hydroplane very easily, but when you become airborne and come out with only a few staples in the head I say get another one. Thanks Honda for building a great, safe car. JT

This car is an adrenaline rush every time I drive it. It negotiates tight curves at high speed like it is on railroad tracks. I especially like the feel of the wheel and drivers seat. It is as though I am sitting in the cockpit of an Indy formula car. It will rachet up to 100 mph so fast it will take your breath away and handle the same as though you are doing 35 mph. I would buy this car again in a heart beat. It measures up to other roadsters costing far more money.

The S2000 is an amazingly fun car to drive, not to many cars can compare to the amount of fun that the s2000 can provide. the seats that hug you in all the right places, a suspension that will get you around corners like you never thought possible and an engine that spins to 9000 rpms an its a convertible. its not the most comfortable or quiet ride, at 75mph at 4k rpms with top up, it seems like your going faster than you really are. down low in the rpm range it seems like a civic which can be annoying, but get into vtec around 6k rpms an it feels like your driving an F1 car. the steering feels light an quick an it feels like a go-kart, quick, agile, an light. an amazing car!

What More Could You Want?

Review

This car is just about perfect, but know that it is a small, purpose-built sports car and does one thing very well - put a smile on your face. Better ride than a Miata but can still be choppy because of the short wheelbase, can out-accelerate 99% of anything on the road, bulletproof reliability, corners incredibly, chassis rigidity normally associated with steel I-beams, beautiful engine sounds that get even better the closer it revs to 9K rpm, even the top seals well. I even drive this thing in the snow with Blizzaks and it is useful. Like most Hondas, for the price this car is a no-brainer. Like a pair of favorite jeans, as the miles roll by this car just fits me better and better.

This car lives up to all the hype. Fun to drive-even in 1st gear. Handles like a race car. Love the push button start and low growl of the engine. Hugs curves and can beat anyone off the start line.

Not Your Mom's Honda

Review

Get in the car and sit in the comfy seats bolstered just enough to hold you while you pull .94 G's but still comfy enough for long trips and press the start button. Bring the top down and go. Just starting it up is fun, you floor it down the street and before you know it you're at 60 mph. The lack of low end torque makes you think an then you hit 6000 rpms and you feel like youre in a F1 car, you're ready to shift when you realize you still have another 3000 rpms till the 9000 rpm redline comes up. I own an 04 M3 an a Lotus Elise and this is by far one of hte most fun cars Ive ever driven, for 31K it doesn't get much better than this.

Ultimate roadster...

Review

After a 3 month search for a new sports car, I went through Z3's and z4's, miatas, corvettes and the like. NOTHING compared to the S2000. Combining legendary Honda build quality, a high revving solid as a rock motor, a lightweight and rearwheel chassis, this car is just a blast to drive. It has ample room for long trips, a driver oriented cockpit that is easy to navigate, and never leaves you longing for something more. If you're looking for a fun car that is reasonably practical this one will not steer you wrong.

All race car

Review

This was more race car than I wanted. More like a slot car than anything else. Great fun to drive. I am 5'9 so car was comfortable. It was not a car to take on road trips or heavy traffic though. Lots of road noise, even for a convertible. I think the car was more quiet with top down. There is a reason they put a volume control on the steering wheel, you are always turning up the stereo to hear it over the road noise.
