2005 Honda S2000 2dr Roadster (2.2L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This is the most enjoyable car I have ever owned. Being 60, I have owned plenty. The car goes through a transformation as you increase the RPM's. It transforms, around 5000 rpms, into a true sports machine, with lots of power and excellent control.


Best Features

The top-down look is very stylish unlike many other baby-boomer roadsters of this class.


Worst Features

None. Just keep making them.

Review

This is an exceptional car. It handles like a true sports car should. The build quality is flawless.


Best Features

The wonderful high revving engine and slick 6 speed gearbox.


Worst Features

Could use more interior storage space. But hey the car is so much fun to drive it is easy to overlook any shortcomings.

Review

I've had my S2000 for almost a year now and love almost everything about the car. I'm a huge fan of Honda and this car is a total thrill! The design is great and performance is even better. Everytime I get in my car, I'm excited to drive! I was initially concerned about the hassle of a 6-speed, but the shifting is virtually effortless. To top it off, I can actually fit my golf clubs in the trunk!


Best Features

240 HP, 17" Wheels, Start Engine Button, Xenon Headlights


Worst Features

Weak Speakers, Excessive Noise w/ Top Up, Very Limited Cabin Storage, No Standard Alarm System

Review

After drooling for 5 years and thinking how impractical the car is, I went ahead and bought one. Driving has been fun ever since, my commute became my race track, specially the ramps getting on the interstate. The ride is hard, but it's a sportscar what did you expect. My only criticism is low rpm power, I'd like to get out of the hole quicker, not burn rubber, but have more of a gas pedal response as soon as I apply foot power to the gas pedal, top end it really revs, I'd just like more guts at the lower end. It's a bit noisy when traveling the freeway, radio is a bit hard to hear, but these are small sacrifices for styling and handling.

Review

Great classic look. Just plain fun sports car- no frills. Great handling and wonderful shifting.


Best Features

Great classic looks.


Worst Features

Smoother second gear. To keep up with the Jones, need larger engine, although 2.2liter, 240Hp is fun enough.
