Best Car I've Ever Owned. — This car sets the bar high. I've test drove plenty of newer cars but the driving experience in the S2k far surpasses all of them. The convertable is a definite plus as well as the small upgrades that can easily be made to this car for uniqueness.

Vroom — Handling is great. Performance superb. A little small as my wife travels with a transport chair. Solid built and reliable. Honda service is very affordable. Just bought new all season performance Bridgestone tires for about $600. Price was not as bad as many.

Cons

Two seater

Fun Weekend Driver — The S2000's production stopped in 2009. These cars are now sought after by people who want a reliable, fun, convertible. Weighing only 2600 lb it picks up and goes. Top Gear said it is one of the best production drift machines made. It handles like a dream due to the mid engine and the car being so low to the ground. If your looking for a fun car that's not going to empty your pockets the S2000 would be a good choice.

Pros

Solid as a tank. Light, handles awesome, and sounds great.  This car is a blast to drive on winding roads and has left many other cars in its wake.  Fun fun car!

Cons

Torque in these cars is rather low. The car has to be wound out to use its quickness. It's a good thing it has a 9,000 RPM  redline!

Awesome Fun Car — I love the solid feel and the sound of the engine when it is wound up. Only Ferrari has a higher horsepower/CC rating. The top lowers quickly and quietly. The sound system is adequate. I wished that the top folded and stored like my Boxster. As it is it folds down and you must manually install the tonneau cover.

Wonderfully Amazing — It is literally like having a Big Boy Go Cart!! You think about going around the next corner and the car automatically takes you there. I get a smile every time I sit in the driver seats and press that little red button!! Engine Start!!

The Honda S2000... Get Em While There Are Here! — Love everything about my 2003, enough that I bought her after returning my 2005 on lease... She is the 2nd S2000 I have owned, and there is nothing as fun in the same price point, let alone an RPM redline of 9,000. Simply put, it rocks!

Great looks, handling, interior, good power and fun to drive.  No need to modify it.

Cons

Could use more power, but what it was built for it is the best.

2003 Honda S2000 — Probably the best two seat sports car soft top you can buy. It does not need to be modified. Handles like it is on rails. Great fun to drive on twisty roads as long as the road is smooth. Great car to cruise in. Only downside is that it had two seats. 9k rpm rev limit was great but you have to drive it like you stole it to make it go fast. Interior was immaculate. Honda made a winner here.

My Dream Car — It was my dream car when i was in High School so as soon as i could afford it i bought it. Handles like no car you will ever drive. Power is adequate, could definitely use more torque but when that VTEC kicks in its night and day. This isn't a car for people who like amminities, no lock/unlock button, hide away radio. I love the car to death especially on a sunny day by the beach.
