I wanted a true sports car that I would be excited about driving for the next decade, and the S2000 is a perfect choice: a driver's car in performance without sacrificing comfort, features, quality, reliability or my financial future. It definitely draws the right kind of attention. Great driveability in traffic as well as on twisty roads where one can wind it out. Excellent build quality and, consequently, a low cost for extending full warranty coverage to seven years. Finally, there's also a great community of S2K car clubs with enthusiasts into tuning, track days or social outings and drives. An ownership experience bar none.
Great power, gearbox and handing. Aggressive styling and excellent wheels & tires. Ease of top operation. Solid ergonomics. Driver's seat fits me perfectly. Nice speakers. Trunk sufficient for modest luggage. Airbag sensors accurately detect when a child is in the passenger seat.
The XM radio option from the dealer is exorbitant. Add Bluetooth capability and jacks for Ipod/MP3. Add a seventh gear or slightly taller sixth gear for highway cruising with peak fuel efficiency.
