Review of the 2004 Honda S2000

  • A sports car that makes few compromises, the 2004 Honda S2000 is one of the more visceral cars sold in America. And yes, that's a good thing.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Agile chassis, rev-happy engine, minimalist design, optional hardtop, high level of performance for the price.

  • Cons

    Still not much low-end torque, no passenger airbag cut-off switch.

  • What's New for 2004

    Honda has made a number of enhancements to the 2004 Honda S2000. Most importantly, a larger 2.2-liter engine has been fitted. This, along with revised transmission gearing, is meant to improve power delivery. Other changes include updated suspension tuning, 17-inch wheels (16s were the previous standard), upgraded brakes, larger tailpipes and restyled front and rear bumpers with new headlights and taillights. Inside, there's a new center console (with two cupholders and a storage tray) and a bit more shoulder, elbow and hiproom for the driver and passenger. All Honda cars have a new seatbelt reminder system this year.

Tough decision -

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

I love this car. I love the way it handles, I love the way it accelerates, and I love the way it feels zooming down the highway at 80 mph with the wind rushing by. I bought a used 2004 with 39,800 miles on it and in amazingly good condition for about $18,000 hoping to have both a fun car to drive and an investment that would maintain or lose very little value over time. I nailed it. I show the car a few times a year and still find myself clearing my calendar when the weather is going to be good so I can take it for a nice long drive. Tough decision? Drive it or store it? Driving is a blast, but storing it will only increase the value (or bleeds out the value more slowly).




S2000

Vehicle: 2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

Amazing vehicle, I drive it daily and I don't believe there is a more fun to drive vehicle that is this dependable. I have taken to drag strip, ran great times, had around BMS a few laps and no issues. Do the maintenance and drive it. I do not have one complaint.




Great car

Vehicle: 2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

What a great car. Like a motorcycle with four wheels. I have had zero problems. Handles like its on rails. Full size golf bag fits in trunk, just don't try two!




The little rocket

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

This little car handle like a rocket.I own a 2007 Honda Si, this car handle well, but not as good as the S2000. Well, if you want to hear this little rocket vtec kicks, shift to first gear and accelerate until you hit 8000 rpm and shift to second gear and will will know what I am talking about. Don't believe me! Try it for yourself.




My black roadster

Vehicle: 2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

At 60-years young I've been a car nut most of my adult life. I have to admit the S2 is the most fun machine I've driven. Value?... you would have to pay thousands more to get a roadster with the handling, performance, & styling of the S2. I'd like to know the process or the nut who figured the S2 @ 20 mpg! I'm on my 2nd S2 the very worst I've gotten, driving hard in the mountains, was 22 mpg, I'll average 24 mpg on the highway 27 mpg.

A blast

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

I had wanted this car since it came on the market. The sound of the exhaust, its strong, sporty appearance. All of its lure comes to life once you are behind the wheel. I'm a 1970's TR6 owner, so in being a sports car purest, the S2000 is marvelous fun. The car's handling is perfection and makes you hunt out winding roads for afternoon drives not to mention how much fun just driving to work can be. I enjoy every second behind the wheel. If you want an exciting ride, this is it!

Let me start with the fact that my last three new cars have been Honda/Acuras: 2002 S2000, 2004 TL 6-speed and 2005 MDX. So I don't need to be "sold" on the virtues of Honda, notwithstandi...

I'm somewhat sorry to report that after 2.5 years of a most enjoyable relationship, I am trading my 2002 S2000 as part of a deal to get a 2004 TL (6-speed of course). There will, undoubtedly, be some...

Last weekend marked the 4th anniversary of my purchase of a 2002 S2000. I bought it for $32k ($880 under MSRP), which was a great deal at the time, considering the Edmunds TMV was still $36,000 ($312...
