I have 11400 miles on this vehicle and
the clutch is sliping to the point the
car is not drivable. Honda is saying it
is normal wear and tear to have this
problem. They are charging me $1,025.00
to put in a new clutch as they will not
cover it under warranty as a defect. In
35 years of driving, I have never had a
clutch go out in 11000 miles. As far as
i am concerned Honda is not living up to
its hyped up reputation. I am selling
the vehicle and buying one that I can
drive and have a company stand behind
The screaming 9000 RPM engine is a
heavenly sound that awakens me every
morning to prepare me for another day!
I've heard criticisms that the engine
evenually wears on one because of noise
and high RPM requirements. Quite to
the contrary, after 5500 miles, the
four cyclinder's thrilling sound still
awakens the teenager within me.
Suspension and ride? Absolutely
incredible! No shakes and not as harsh
as the M Roadster. Tight and firm!
Build quallity? Second to none! No
irritating returns to the dealership.
Looks? Well, beauty is in the eye of
the beholder, but I'll take it over
BMWs Z4 any day of the week.
Engine! There is nothing like the
experience of RPMs climbing, climbing -
you arrive at 9000 RPMs and think "Oh,
my heavenly word!" You think that
you've just left the start line at the
US Grand Prix and are racing to the
first turn! Where are those red
Improvements? You're kidding, right?
For $30,000? I'm one happy camper!
Ok, ok, how about a better radio and
I've had it for 4 months now and
everytime I step into the drivers seat
and turn the key I love it even more.
I raced it all summer(including 8g
neutral drops)and the only car that
beat me was a e55 amg. I paid for those
neutral drops in late sept when my
clutch blew and i paid out 1800 for a
whole new tranny =). I've read the
reviews and people complain about
heated seats, power seats, blah
blah. This is a true sports car,
period. If you want all that stuff the
s2000 is not what you are looking for.
I really feel the only sports car that
can give you the same feeling as you
feel in the S is a ferrari
VTEC, 9000rpm, clutch, hid lighting
system, handling, having people drool
over it, convertible, exhaust note in
This was the best car I have owned by
far. The handling is superb. I always
have the top down...as long as the sun
is shining. Unfortunately, I have to
put it up in the winter but it just
makes it all the sweeter to drive in
The shifting is incredible. Very tight
corners. Takes off like a rocket.
