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.

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!

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.

Honda S2000 — The S2000 is the ultimate choice for those looking for a lower budget sports car. With a 9,000 redline, 240 hp on tap, 2800lb curb weight and roadholding to rival most cars on the street this car is FUN. It looks hot, the ladies love it, and you can roll in style, at speed and still get 25+ mpg. I have a spugen exhaust on mine, I felt the stock was too quiet. It adds a little something personal as well. I drive the car year round and its a blast in snow. I hate the salt and grit, but a few inches of powder and you're in for a sideways thrill ride. The only warning i have with this car is the snap oversteer. Exceed its limits by a tiny amount and you'll have some fun putting her back in a straight line. Know what you're doing before you start to push the S2000 too far. Overall, enjoy the experience!

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.

Pros

Not 0-30, but 30 to (don't tell anyone 174). It will hang with any hot car up to 2002 foreign or domestic.

Cons

The first couple of years it had a plastic rear window.

As Most Reviewers Said, Pure Enjoyment Comes From "driving It Like You Stole It!!!" — The best special edition car made for the price. It was hand assembled on the NSX line. It should cost a $100,000; but at most $37,000 for the CR edition which is a bargain considering you get a carbon fiber wing and a hard top for only $3K above the normal edition price.

Looks And Speed With The Honda Badge Haha — Perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Revs to 9200 rpms. Sticks to the road. Beautiful car with a long front end. Not Expensive to maintain. Fun to drive. Downside is there is not much room thats about it. I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

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 :)
