Best all-around car I ever owned!
If you can put up with it's ridiculously small interior, this car is great--it runs well (I have over 300K miles on it now), even though repairs are a little costly when they are finally needed, and it gets on down the road REALLY well!
Best of the best.
I have owned and driven many performance, luxury and sports cars in my days. Never could you find a car that incorporated all aspects of what cars can be until Honda made the S2000. To drive the S2000 will just blow you away. You come away saying wow, how can that be. You haven't driven til you have driven this. Of the S2000 stable, and I've driven them all, the 2006 model is the best in regards to balance of performance and luxury while retaining raw sports car qualities. The differences from the ten model years, 2000 to 2009, in some cases is subtle but the 06 has the best balance which makes it the best of the run.
Most fun you can have with your cloths on... =)
Probably the best car ever made. When I was considering "My Reward" I checked out a lot for cars. It came down to a practical decision. Yes, believe me, it was a practical decision to buy a car that many say is not practical. If your looking to haul a useful amount of lumber, drive in heavy traffic, drive in inclement weather and other such nonsense, though it can be done, you may not consider this car practical. You'd be charged with blasphemy by many for trying to do so anyway. What I considered in my decision. Number one the car was for me, not everyone else. Most people do not know what this car is when they see it, but, they do love it. I could have bought anything I wanted. I was considering a Jag, Vet, Camaro, Mustang, Mercedes, Beemer, Porsche, Ferrari amongst others. With all these choices why did I buy the S? Back to my first statement the car was for me, not anyone/everyone else. I bought this as a "Reward". I work hard for my money. I'm a practical, value orientated person. I'm very busy, loaded up with responsibilities. I wanted a toy, a serious toy. One that I could play with, play hard with and not end up under it, over it, wasting my valuable time fixing it. RELIABILITY, CHECK. It's a toy, it should be fun. Fast, quick, nimble, surefooted, all those things you may consider fun. While I'm here let's speak to fast. It is fast but if you want to do quarter mile stuff, race long straights, etc your likely gonna get beat. But in the twisties, the tight ones, all those other cars will get in your way. I had a Carrera in my way in some nice twisties. In the straights he'd run away but hit the curves and he was in my way. FUN, CHECK. GAS MILEAGE, CHECK. It's great. Comfort. I don't know why many here have marked it as only four of five? I'm 5'11'', about 200 lbs, no issues. Long drives your gonna wanna stretch but I do that in any car on a long drive... The wife loves it and she hates long drives... I've known guys 6'2'' and heavier guys too that drove and enjoyed the cars. COMFORT, CHECK. I've known people that daily drive their S2Ks. I've referred to the S as "The Civic From xxxx!" It's as reliable, no more reliable than a Civic. It has all the aforementioned attributes. So to me, PRACTICAL, CHECK. And how did I not mention it's a convertible! With air conditioning to boot for those hot muggy days. With all this considered it was a no brainer. Wish I had bought several as these are now an investment in addition to all their other qualities. How could you go wrong... The cars a 2006 that I bought new. Last fall, 2019, I replaced the OEM battery. The battery was still good but getting weak. No other problems or issues. Nothing.
