FredWirt's review is way off the mark.
As a matter of fact, I doubt he owns
one (Cruise wasn't even available on
the 2000! If he has it, it is
aftermarket.) His problems are far
out of the ordinary. Get the real
story on the Spyder at
www.spyderchat.com and ask the
enthusiasts there. As for the guy
with the 10K-15K tires...okay...sure.
You can replace your tires with some
excellent ones for less than $400 and
pocket the difference between that and
the extra $10-12K on the S2000. Don't
know what kind of tires you had, but
that's no reason to rate the car a 2-3
Easy to use top. Do NOT have to get
out to put it up and down, as Edmunds
says. I still do, to put it down
(although other owners do not), but it
is QUITE easily raised from the seated
position. I LOVE it!!!
What car can't use a few more HP? :)
You'll be surprised how well that 138
HP propels such a light car around,
though. Corners like a dream!
