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

Review

Last year, I sold my motorcycle and wanted to fill the empty void in the garage with a rag top. I considered the Lotus Elise, Porsche Boxster and Honda S2000. The Elise certainly performed the best, but unfortunately suffers from kit car looks and limited dealer access. The Porsche, holds its own in terms of performance, but brings with it high maintenance costs. The S2000, combined stellar performance, excellent visuals and rock solid Honda reliability. The VTEC engine is a treat to listen to and continually begs you to drive it at the top of the rev band!

Favorite Features

Hands down - the Engine & Drivetrain! The 2.2L VTEC Engine and its closely matched 6 Speed Transmission are the heart and soul of this car.

Suggested Improvements

Perhaps a taller 6th Gear for highway driving. This would probably improve its highway fuel economy. Else, a few more creature comforts would be nice including a better stereo, heated seats and an outside air temperature gauge. Lastly, an analog tachometer would improve the instrument cluster.
