2006 Honda S2000 2dr Convertible (2.2L 4cyl 6M)


My previous cars: e46 M3, e92 335i, B7 A4, and a few Maximas. S2000 is super fun, simple yet nice design, engine is work of art, fun factor compared to my previous M3. Now the bad: should be at least 0.5 seconds faster, NOT as reliable as I thought...I have 33k miles and check engine light for multiple misfires (common on S2k) all 4 coil packs were cracked ($650 job at dealer w/ diagnostics), at 33k miles car already needed valve adjustment ($340 at dealer w/seal and diagnostics)....and I heard that injectors on this car can also fail soon.....remember my car has had ALL maintenance and was never raced on track. Kind of disappointed since I bought this car for "Honda reliability"

Best Features

Engine, transmission, HIDs

Worst Features

Head Unit is junk....only plays CDs....and skips by the way....HondaUSA customer relations is a joke. Also almost ALL softtops on S2000 have defect and Honda refuses to fix even though there is TSB on this for 4 years now ! Soft top frame has sharp edges which cause softtop to rip. (my car had this issue at around 20-25k miles)
