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


Review

After drooling for 5 years and thinking how impractical the car is, I went ahead and bought one. Driving has been fun ever since, my commute became my race track, specially the ramps getting on the interstate. The ride is hard, but it's a sportscar what did you expect. My only criticism is low rpm power, I'd like to get out of the hole quicker, not burn rubber, but have more of a gas pedal response as soon as I apply foot power to the gas pedal, top end it really revs, I'd just like more guts at the lower end. It's a bit noisy when traveling the freeway, radio is a bit hard to hear, but these are small sacrifices for styling and handling.

Review

Great classic look. Just plain fun sports car- no frills. Great handling and wonderful shifting.


Favorite Features

Great classic looks.


Suggested Improvements

Smoother second gear. To keep up with the Jones, need larger engine, although 2.2liter, 240Hp is fun enough.

Review

a fun a to drive for a sub-33 grands, no other roadster in this class can beat the s2000 for value, reliability, performance and styling. Interior is a little cramping for a full grown adult, but if one can get acustom to it will find the car is rewarding to drive around tight corners and on open roads. The engine is noisy but not punishing, it sounds like a formula 1 sport car with full potential to beat most 4 and 6 non-turbo cylinders cars. The 6 speed manual trans. is flawless, it is very rare on a sub 33 grands. Inaddition, it handle the road very well with top up or down. Very well balance car. It can be a huge improvement with a little more investment on aftermarket tuning accessories.


Favorite Features

vtec engine, flawless 6sp manual exterior styling and interior features such as sport seats and center console


Suggested Improvements

analog speedometer over digital which can be trouble some down the road when the car gets pass 5yrs. But digital fits the s2000 high tech image and high rev limit. The 04-06 rear bumper needs meshscreen ventilator to filter out un wanted air trapped at rear bumper which can decreases performance.

Review

What an incredible car. So much fun to drive and so easy on the eyes. This car puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. I have had no reliability issues with it. Fit and finish is top notch. Love every moment. The HID Headlights on this car are brighter and sharper than those coming on vehicles twice its price.


Favorite Features

convertible, vtec, handling, RWD, HID Headlights, cockpit style interior, shifter feel.
