Best Bang For The Buck — FUN,FUN,FUN This car is a real blast to drive and is easy to live with. My only negative is rear tire wear, but hey, that may be partially my fault as I tend to drive it rather hard at times. As for performance, it's fun to take people for a ride and then tell them that the car has an engine the size of an econo-box car that's half as powerful. For the money, I think that this car is the best bang for the buck and in these days of uncertain future gas prices the added benefit of mid-twenty MPG is an added bonus. Too bad Honda decided to quit making these little gems.

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

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

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

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.

2002 S2000 — I like everything about this car. It's fast, fun, and beautiful. This is purely a sports car. Best vehicle I've ever own. The engine is exciting when it sings. Best looker when top is down. This is not just a car..it's a yard stick. Wish it was a 3.0 instead or a 2.0 though. But who cares...it's a Honda.(reliable)

Sick Ride — This S2000 I bought from Merriatta, Georgia, is one of a kind with good acceleration, braking, handling. this car will want you to drive fast which isn't very good cause 50 over you screwed and it gets up there quick. Drifting is fun, Going to Cayuga for car show on October 4, I'm pumped!!!!!!!!!

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.
