2004 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)


Bought the 2004 S2K as a second vehicle to add a fun alternate to the fully owned, practical SUV. Tried a few competitors, but the S2K came in ahead of them all. Performance, for the price, lays all the others aside (save possibly for the Nissan 350Z). The S2K has become the vehicle of choice, but for bulk errands and carting the (large) dog around. The car is not for family convenience, but driving pleasure. Even a short commute is enhanced by the fun and, frankly, driveability of the S2K. Clearance (into work garage ramp and driveway) were no problem (slow and at an angle) for city driving, but the fun comes in on the open highway. Watch your speed - it takes you past legal w/o thought.

Best Features

Performance, obviously. Manners in traffic as well as a ride height that allows for parking garage entry/exit w/o scraping bottom (carefully, of course). Radio features in easy reach of drivers hands on the wheel.

Worst Features

Better cup-holder stability in console (for coffee on the commute, or water on the hot days). Lose the electronic dash and start button (with all the design simplicity of the rest of the car, why?). Make the steering column moveable for larger folks - not a prob for a shrimp like me, but others??
