Pure sports car
Pure example of a sports car. Andrenalin is there, excellent v-tec sound. Revving to 9.000 rpm, rear wheel drive. Everything you need in a sports car. Bhp not impressive for today’s standards but anyway my moto for s2000 is ‘not how fast you go but how you go fast’
Outstanding True Sports Car
love driving this car, very good 6 speed which pulls strong in 2nd and 3rd gear especially, but cruising at 85 in 6th is fun at low RPM, but you can slow to 50 without downshifting. Seats are very comfortable and top down driving is a joy with no buffeting or other annoyances. 3 things I don’t like 1 the factory convertible top has a flaw in design which results in tears in the fabric at the arc above windows. 2. The headlight and tail lights are expensive modular assemblies, you can’t just replace the clouded headlight cover or the same lucite cover on the tail light. You must replace each unit at about $659 a piece. 3. Run flat tires that are not repairable. When the current tires need replacing I’ll switch back to a good convention tire and use one of the run flats as a spare. The A/C is strong and I to have it on when I have the top down on a hot Texas Day
This car is incredibly fun to drive. Handling and power delivery are uniquely Honda, however at its very best. I’ve owned my 2005 since it was new and it’s reliability is nearly perfect, in typical Honda fashion.The overall experience of driving this machine never gets old or labored, and every single day I look forward to the experience. The only problem now is that my daughter does as well, so occasionally I have to drive her 2001 civic ex with 314,000 miles on it.
Never owned anything as fun to drive
I am 65 years old, and I have owned a lot of classic cars, I have Chevelle's with 454's in them , have had Impalas with 409's in them, they were fun to drive with the 4speed transmission but nothing I have driven compares to the s2000. I have a silver 2005. S2000 that just turned 85,000 Miles in it , I have owned it for 2 years, never had a car that was anything like it, it handles better than anything I have ever owned, it is a blast to drive and you don't have to worry about going into a curve too fast, the car stays glued to the ground, I would advise anyone to buy one, they will not regret it and will have the time of their life driving it
15 year of reliability and performance!
148k miles and still brings a smile - It gives a visceral experience unlike most vehicles! The S2000 can make it hard on the senses to pick another vehicle.
Seriously great fun car
80 years old - best looking , running car ever. Never any problems. Put new top and new tires ... otherwise maintenance free. Owned all sorts of cars - this has been the best.
For a sports car it's the best I've ever had.
It's a Honda, which is usually enough said. This car, however, is exceptional in almost every way. Especially style and performance. I thoroughly enjoyed owning the car.
My favorite car ever
This car will always and forever be my favorite car. It is so beautiful with its long hood and the drop top. I would recommend this car to anyone looking to have some vtec fun in the hills!
Best open top, lightweight sports car period.
Best transmission and gearshifts. Once the most HP NA engine, only bested my Ferrari later. VTEC noise, and 8k+ rpm. Easy, and cheap to maintain. I bought one, drove for 25k miles, and didn't loose a dime.I regret selling this.
Form and function
Like to drive? A clean, low miles S2000 is perhaps the most satisfying driver's car you can get for less than 100 grand. It's everything a Miata wishes it was, everything a Miata should be. Get an AP2, change the fluids, put on good tires and let it teach you to be a better driver. All while you have immeasurable fun. Reliable? Like a chunk of granite.
