Engine Problems!
By bbsilver on


2000 Honda S2000 2dr Convertible


At least the 2000 and 2001 model have
had a series of electrical and
mechanical issues. Oil starvation, oil
consumption, ECU failure, spark plugs
backing out to name a few. Serious
issues with bent valves as well. The
problems are mostly quality control and
design issues (some are driver error).
Some of the problems lead to
catastrophic engine failure. Honda is
starting to deny valid warranty claims
for technicalities. Engine repair is
extremely costly due to lack of
aftermarket parts and low quantites.

Best Features

9k redline. Great looks.

Worst Features

Honda's response to warranty issues related to design and quality control. No GPS (available in Europe and Japan). Spartan interior. Stereo cover hits knees. 2000 and 2001 stereos were pitiful.
