Fun Car, Too Many Parts Breaking
By dmacinaz on
2007 Honda S2000 2dr Convertible (2.2L 4cyl 6M)
This is an absolutely fun car to drive.
I use it as my daily driver and it is a blast.
I have taken it on several trips to the coast and to Vegas and while there may not be a whole lot of extra room in the cabin, the seats are very comfortable and make it easy to drive long distances.
That's the upside to this car.
Now for the downside.
I bought this car used in 2008 with 14K miles on it.
I had 0 problems with it until this past year when at 55K miles the AC compressor decided to go out.
$1,500 for that fix, then the clutch master cylinder went out for another $200.
I hope that's the last fix for a while.
The engine and transmission combo
This car does not come with a whole lot of "extras" - it's a driver's car so you had best enjoy driving, the sound of driving and the wind that comes with driving top down.
The thing corners like a go kart but be prepared to spend some coin on tires because you will go through them.
Since the S2000 is no longer being made, not sure that this matters but it would have been nice to experience some of Honda's legendary reliability here or at least have Honda be a little more willing to step up and go beyond their 36,000 mile warranty.
