Pros

Drives like a dream.  Corners on rails.  This is a MY 2000 car, it has NO driver assist electronics other than ABS.  The tail will come loose if you push it VERY hard.

Cons

Top is wearing out after only 14 years!  There really are no cons for this car.

Try One Before You Die. — The S2000 is a Miata with balls. I had a Miata when I bought the Honda. More power, better brakes, way better transmission, better looking, a little better handling, power roof, and VTEC! There's nothing like the feeling when the hot cam engages.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Handling, the Honda is set up ok from the factory and with a few tweaks can be an exceptional handling car.

Cons

Has a tendency to oversteer but can be corrected with the proper suspension enhancements

Fun On A Curvey Mountain Road. — When I first drove the Honda I was really disappointed with the oversteer problem. Every time I wanted to push the S2000 thru a corner it was not as much fun as it should be. I finally did some homework and found out that most S2000 do not handle as well as advertised and would without warning lose traction and oversteer. I also read that with the correct set up and wheel alignment the oversteer issue could be corrected. After lots of research I found and installed the correct parts and now the car handles as advertised.

Pros

Best sports car made for the money. I've owned two. 07 & 00 240 hp 4cyl. handles like well balanced more expensive sports car

Cons

have to get used to a high rev to get into the HP band. If your used to muscle cars it is a transition but a 9,300 rpm top end is impressive and power is awesome!

A Step Above — Honda sold these cars from 00 to 09. Best car they ever produced in my estimation and only made in Japan. As well balanced as any European sports car and handles like a formula 1 car. If you have not driven one you should because people are going to hold on to this jewel and they will dwindle off the market. They hold value!

Pros

Great Looks!  Handles Like a Go-Cart!  Best Honda ever made!

Cons

Wish it had Tilt-Wheel.  An automatic "boot cover" like the BMW's would be nice too.

An Absolute Blast To Drive! — This is my 2nd S2000. My first one was nice, but had several alterations including a lowering kit. The car really doesn't need anything. It is awesome from the factory. This car is almost all original except for a support bar under to hood, and drilled and slotted brake rotors. All original paint and interior.

Over Great Car For The Weekends — Overall the car is great, but is made for average or short people. has awsome handling and 245hp is impressive for all motor 4cyclinder, the car looks aggressive when lowered, deffintly a high maintanced honda, isnt like your average honda civic, repairs are high, but over all good car and would make someone a good weekend car or somthing to fix and show because not to many around.

Convertible, low and stylish. 9000rpm factory redline.

Cons

Very stiff suspension. it doesnt bother me really but i had to put something..

This Car Decimates All. Well Just About. Its Faster Than My Hayabusa. =) — Fully race built and bored motor. GT35R pushing 22psi. 702rwhp@ 9300. unlike all those ridiculous civic crapbacks out there..this honda is a REAL monster! Going from a 600hp gto to a stock 2.0 was a HUUUGE decrease in performance. but this thing pulled through and caused a tornado while doing it.

One Of The All Time Greats! — The best car I have ever owned. Goes as good as it looks, and Honda built - so 9000rpm at every shift and the 150000th km felt better than the first! So much fun - I want another one! Just need to convince the Mrs...

My New Formula Red S2000 — Love: it's a convertible. 6-speed manual shifter is the best I ever used. Looks great, very light and agile and quick. love stock HID headlights. dislike: radio stinks! stock rims pretty small (16" rims) - but i'll change that soon!

It's Mine, I Love It. — I took a very good car, took it to bits and then rebuilt it. Performance is pretty good - 0-60 is 5 seconds and it'll do >160 leptons. The best thing about this car is that if you mess it up, it'll kill you - Know what you are doing or get another car :)
