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


Review

First review was after owning for 5k miles. Current review is after two years. I can again confirm this was a smart purchase decision. Tire wear is always an issue with stock Bridgestone Potenza RE050's, but dry/wet grip is fanstastic. Also had the opportunity attent two open track days....well worth the money to get the experience. The S2000 handles fanstastically. Grin from ear to ear..can't wait to do it again. Criticisms: Rattling from convertible top latches; second gear grind early in life, seems to have gone away unless cold temps; passenger seatbelt rattles on door pannel/seat One last note: this car CAN be driven in the winter. Snow tires are a must and work great!


Best Features

Convertible top operation is very quick; clutch take up is linear, steering is very direct without slop, brakes are very robust, love the HID headlamps and LED taillights. Love sitting 4 inches off the ground. Suspension tuning is great, lacks any signifcant body roll.


Worst Features

Interior rattles can annoy some, ingress/egress is difficult if you're tall (no prob for me!), buying tires gets expensive because of staggered F/R sizes, too much brake dust on front rotors (sprited driving and track days), definately needs a better stereo..more speakers, sub- woofer...something.

Review

Without a doubt, one of the BEST 2 seat convertibles on the market today. I have wanted this car since it arrived over 5 years ago. But waited for what seems like an eternity to finally get it.


Best Features

Power, Handling, Styling, Transmission, not anything bad that I can think of.


Worst Features

Convertible top cover!, What a pain to put on. Basically it stays in the garage. More storage room (glovebox), and a standard factory security system to keep all the eyes off of my car.

Review

This car is all about performance. If you're looking for cushy luxury it isn't for you. But I get out of the car with a grin every day and the howl it makes over 7000 rpm is pure joy.


Best Features

Go-kart handling and high-reving fun. Pleasing body lines and Honda quality throughout


Worst Features

If there was any way to soften up the ride and retain that glorious handling it would be great. But physics gets in the way.

Review

The car was purchased as my weekend fun car. I have a 96 accord Ex which is my daily driver. But when I get behind the wheel of this little pocket rocket, I just loose my mind. There isnít any other car I would consider on my S2K and I looked at the BMW Z4 as well as the Porsche Boxster but could compare to her.


Best Features

Performance, handling


Worst Features

How can you impove perfection?

Review

I have owned this car for 3 years and I still love driving it. the V tech thrills me every time it kicks in. And the responsive handling is fun on winding roads. I love this little jem.


Best Features

the body style is classy and makes the car look much more expenceive than it is.


Worst Features

could use a better wind break to slow up the back draft.
