2005 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)

Review

Faster than other roadsters costing tens of thousands more (Z4, first generation 986 Boxster S, Audi TT, last generation SLK), and still able to hold its own with the latest Teutonic offerings, the S2000 is the best deal going. Add to that impeccable reliability, great styling, and good gas mileage and you have a recipe for the perfect roadster.

Bought Rhonda 1 month ago after a test drive. Was looking at several other vehicles but this is the best bang for the buck i could find. She's red with the factory wheels chromed and she's a beauty. I live in SoCal like Denn (see "Whoa Nelly")and the top never goes up. What an awesome car :) My wife didn't care much for the 5 spd manual in my last 2 Mustang GT's but she absolutely loves to shift this one, in fact, it's getting more difficult to get the car away from her. Looks like i found a "keeper". BTW, i'm 6'3" and 225 lbs and do not have a problem with my seating assignment.

This is an absolute sling shot! I had no intentions of ever buying a car of this class and style, yet I was intrigued at the price and had to test drive. SOLD INSTANTLY! I had to have it, if you've never driven this vehicle go do it now... You will never regret the money spent I promise!

Review

Just sold my 1967 XKE Jag to slip my nearly 80 year old body into this S2000 baby. This is a true Sports Car Roadster as defined by 1950/60 standards, (i.e., not a touring convertible with 6 cup holders. The beautiful 6 speed close ratio gear box is so quick, with just a twist of the wrist. This is a keep the revs up car, but oh so sweet between 6000/8000 revs. It belies me how the cam shaft design upon reaching engine 6500 rpms, kicks in like the old time superchargers. They only built 7200 of the S2000 a year at the Susaki racing factory, perhaps Japans best kept secret. Hope they continue with a 2006 model, if not the 2005 is destined to become a collecter car before its time.

Very fun to drive. Best handling car I've owned. Great acceleration and top-down fun! Beware huge blind spots with the top up. Not a long distance hauler. About two hours is the max before you want to get out and stretch your legs. Better fuel economy than expected. Measured over 27 mpg with several short trips & some mixed highway driving. The stereo stinks, but apparently has gotten better than on past models.

Best Sports Car for the Money!

Review

I have wanted one of these cars since they came out almost 6 years ago. This is without a doubt one of the best handling, convertible sports cars out there. Must be a reason that Car & Driver voted it number 1 in a comparison test for 2004 and also rated it as one of their choices in their Top 10 annual category. The only things that I would change is the tonneau cover design, and I think the interior needs more storage space. Other than that the car is perfect.

Review

This is the most awesome stab and steer car since the Corvette. Streamlined exterior with minimalist interior; all goodies within a fingertip reach.Not good for a large/tall person. Short geared, high whiny rev. Access to gas tank cover in an odd place. However it is the perfect convertible-easy top and you cannot go wrong with Honda dependability.

Not for the Faint of Heart

Review

After purchacing my S2000 in Anchorage in March, I quickly realized that a second car was needed in any area that required driving in the snow. That being said, this is the most fantastic car that I've ever driven. Though it packs quite a punch (240 hp), it is a very tame every day driver. But, when you want to unleash that horsepower, it's always there on command. It's handling is extremely precise, and there is little or no body roll in the corners. The chassis is extremely rigid, and the car feels as it is one piece. Having 6 speeds, the shifter is crisp and has short throws. The seats are firm and supportive. There is very little trunk room, though, so pack lightly.

Review

The car fits me perfectly, although my husband at 6' is a bit snug in the passenger seat. It is a blast to drive and handles very well. It has great acceleration. The trunk is small, just big enough to fit an overnight luggage piece, but then again it is only for 2 people. Although there is only one package option, there are plenty of colors for both the exterior and interior to choose from.
