Better Than A Boxster — Easily the most fun car I've owned..... I moved on to a 987 Boxster S, Focus ST (280bhp), V8 M3 and Audi S4 after the Honda and none of them have come close to the fun had behind the wheel of the S2000.

My S2000 — Performance: Quick, lightweight, well handling roadster Build Quality: No problems yet but its a Honda and I don't expect much Appearance: I think its sexy! Gas mileage: not so great for a four banger but I'm not complaining considering how fun the car is. Fun Factor: How many other cars can you Rev past 6K and its just getting ready to play? 9K all day!!!!!

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

Delightfuly civil at highway speeds with top down
Honda reliability . Enough Said!

Cons

Parts are challenging to source due to limited production quantity

Absolutely Perfect Roadster For Summer — Have owned for four seasons, longer than any other sports car. There is really no better alternative for the money. May buy a newer year, but S2000 is the best from Honda since the NSX. It is an ideal car for the weekends on sunny Summer days

Pros

Fantastic value, amazing styling, epic handling along with a crisp short throw shifter.

Cons

After getting to know the car it's not enough power and Honda does not stand behind their product.

My Four Year Experience With A 2002 S2000 — Overall it was a great car for the money and would just barely beat 350z's and Porsche boxter's which was a lot of fun since it was a four cylinder. What really opened up the car was the T1R headers and the Invidia cat back exhaust which made it sound great and it's a must to get some wheels because the stock sixteen inch wheels are a joke. I loved the car but at the same time I hated it because a spark plug blew out of the head and blew the engine, it was a problem with AP1 S2000's and since it was from the united states the warranty was void and I found a used low kilometer JDM engine and six thousand dollars later my problem was solved. Now I have a 2004 Corvette Z06 and this car is way better.

A Dying Breed — Absolutely the most fun car I've ever driven. It is what a car should be, everything you need and nothing you don't. It may not be the fastest car on the road, but I guarantee you will be hard pressed to find one that is more fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Best Valued Sports Car From 20k-50k — At 145k the car is running great! No major mechanical issues, change fluids = most service the s2000 needs Performance - great but who doesn't want more? Best gear shifter in the business 25mpg - but only 13 gallon tank Extremely fun to drive

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.

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)
