Great Car, Lousy Transmission
By Jeramy on


2002 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


I bought this car in December of 2001.
Lust at first sight and Love at first
drive. After six wonderful months with
the car the transmission went sour.
The dealership where I live, Allen
Honda in College Station, TX claimed
the car had been abused and therefore
would not be covered under warranty.
For sure, I drive hard. But... The
car has never been on a race track, I
have never missed a shift at high rpm,
etc. etc. FYI, the Honda Customer
Service rep. told me that shifting at
redline can be construed as abuse?!?!
Needless to say I will never own
another Honda for the rest of my days.
