Review

I went looking for a sports car in
2000. Drove the new Lexus, Audi GT and
Boxter first. Then drove the S2000.
Loved every second driving it. Fast, go-
kart handling and dependable! I live
50% of my time in England. I went and
found a 1999 Red S2000 with 1500 mi's
on it (little old lady thought it was
too hot for her...sat in her garage).
The backroads of England were made to
be driven by this car. What a blast! 3
years on with two S2000's (for the
price of one Porsche)and not one
complaint!


Best Features

HANDLING! Leave it at 5000 rpm and hit the gas and you won't be sorry.


Worst Features

Honda's done them all in later models. A second hand one is stupidly cheap. go get one!

Review

Great ride and just fun to drive. This
car demands to be driven, no taking you
eye off the road or gearshifter. I
also own an old 911 and this is the
closest thing I've found to driving it.
Wish it had a little more power at the
line, which I belive the 2004 2.2 liter
is suppose to address. I'm also in the
process of upgrading the stereo
speakers to produce more fullness of
sound (2000 year only had door speakers
which are partially blocked ny your
legs).


Best Features

Love the fingertip controls for stereo and AC near the stearing wheel. I'm a large person (5'11'' @ 250 lbs) and still find the sitting conditions comfortable - even on long trips.


Worst Features

Better low-end power (2004 2.2 liter fix) Better sound (2003 and later include a door-mount tweeter) Smoother shifting (later models improve 2nd and 3rd gear transitions) Dingy rear window (2002 and up added glass rear window)

Review

The car is great. It's fast. It's
simple. It's reliable. The more I
drive it, the more I appreciate it, and
the more I admire Honda for building
such well thought-out products. A well
cared for used S2000 is a great car.


Best Features

Handling - it stops, goes and corners like a champ. Radio controls mounted on the left side of the steering wheel are very simple to use, and the radio cover is closed all the time. The transmission is great and the shifter is in the perfect position.


Worst Features

Any suggestions I would have for this car have been addressed by Honda. They now have a more powerful stereo with tweeters mounted high on the doors. They have added a glass rear window to replace the original plastic window. And in '04 they added more torque to the engine.

Review

This car broke in well at 15,000 miles.
I call it "Songbird" for it's sound.
The more I drive it the more I like it.
Do not be afraid to biy one with some
miles on it. Don't listen to the
naysayers just drive it.


Best Features

I love the high rev engine and the songit makes. Gearshifting is a dream though it takes a little getting used to andrequired break in. Handling and braking is top notch.


Worst Features

I wish there was some way to eliminate rear tire wear from 6 to 9 thou shifts.
