Revtastic!!! — engine was superb, a real screamer, great heating system too, stereo was weak and the steering feel wasn't the best...easy to use hood and really well screwed together.

Unbelivabale Power But Comes With A Price Tag — The 2002 honda s2000 is a incredible car it handles very well and has plenty of horses (237) under the hood too make the tires chirp. Go from 0 - 60 in 3.9 seconds. You should definetly take a look at this car in the future

Wouldn't Trade It For The World, Will Own Till I Die — In this price range for a convertible you can't beat it... The Sky turbo is OK but doesn't have a 9K rev. 60k miles... tracked... 7years... drivin like a stole it and not a single problem, except for being on my 5th set of tires

everything

Cons

torque

35

My 02 S2k. — Hum............... performance is questionable on it. its not as fast as my R but still gets up there, all it really needs is more torque performance wise. and more room in the cabin and in the trunk. other then that theres really nothing i dislike about it.

Super Sports Car! — Seats are comfortable. Able to carry most things I needed in the trunk. Liked the push button start. Roof goes up and down with button as well. Holds the road and brakes well. Good looking car with low mainenance costs.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

fast, good handling and braking, fun to drive

Cons

death trap on snowy or icy roads

95

Best Car Under $90,000 — Its just a blast really. Plenty of power when you need it, but can still be driven conservatively enough to get halfway decent gas mileage. It handles like you're on rails, stops on a dime etc. Nevermind cruising around with the top down - that's a whole new pleasure all in itself.

Pros

Agility, handling, acceleration, reliability, build quality, cost of ownership (for a sports car)

Cons

First off ... you know what you are getting into. This is an uncompromising sports car with just the basic of luxury features. It also has little low end power ... so you have to rev it to make it go. I you know that going in ... then you won't be disappointed.

2002 S2000 — The most significant sports car/roadster for it's price class. I've actually autocross the car. So, I know some of its capabilities. It's the best handling car I've driven so far. It's an uncompromising sports car. However, it's still relatively cheap to own unlike may other sports cars. The build quality is good and it's been reliable (a typical Honda trait). I've also got 28mpg.

Pros

Orchestra of chainsaws emitted from the engine compartment as it climbs to its 9,000rpm redline, Drives like a slot car, cheap to own and is down right amazing.

Cons

No lumbar support, Stock Radio blows, 4,000 rpms @ 70mph in 6th

S2000 > F355, Say What You Want, But This Car Is An Engineering Marvel. — This car is amazing. Corners like a slot car. For what it is it gets up and goes. It might only run a 13.9-14.0 but it traps as fast as any Evo/STi and its an n/a 2 liter Honda. Makes a glorious battle cry as whoever is next to you shifts at 6-7 whilst you rev it out to 9 grand. The build quality is as can be expected from Honda. The car has some pretty amazing lines to it, the front fenders tower over the wheels and have an extremely low and wide stance. This car still retains the economy of a Honda achieving almost 28mpg on the highway. All in all, you can buy one used for under 12k in good condition with relatively low miles. It will out perform many cars twice as expensive completely out of the box and it has the same cost of ownership as a civic. Definately a car one should at the very least drive, if not own, at some point in their life if they are a true racing enthusiast.

Excellent Ride. — I really enjoyed owning this car, but I needed to add a truck to the family fleet and just don't have room for it any more. I bought as a commuter car and it served me very well over the last couple of years. I will miss it!
