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!!

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

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!

Smooth 6-Speed and hot look.

Cons

No storage space, not even much trunk room

Tons Of Fun In The Sun! — This car is a must drive for any roadster enthusiast! It has great pep and an eye-catching look. It makes almost everyone do a double take and can keep up and take most cars off the line. Also an easy car to tune or dress-up.

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.

Minor build bugs that were worked out in later years, but you don't get the fun engine after 03.

2003 Honda S2000 — Just to point out, my S2000 is not stock. It has minor exhaust (Headers, Cat-Back exhaust), intake (Spoon Snorkel Kit), and Suspention (Strut tower bars, Coilovers) Modifications and this review is biased by them. Overall, this car is GREAT fun. The acceleration is ok until you hit VTEC (5800 rpms), then the thing FLYS to its 9k rpm revv limiter. 0-60 times just over 5 seconds. The steering is a touch on the light side, however it does have good feel. Braking is great, only minor fade on really sharp declines. The build quality is good, however there are somethings you need to look for. The covertable top framework had a rough spot near the passenger side hinge and eventually wore through the roof. The rear spoiler is held on by double sided tape. The side markers are also quite easy to break when replacing a bulb. Appearance... The car is sexy. End of Story. Great lines, and if you wanna trick it out, there is a pritty large aftermarket for it. Cost of Ownership isn't all that bad actually. If you're nice, it can get 22 mpg, pritty respectable for a car with 240 hp. Parts for it aren't real bad either, and most parts store carry equipment for them. Fun Factor... Yes... YES. If you can afford one for a summer play thing, get it. If you live in an area that doesn't get snow, DAILY DRIVE IT. You will smile every time you get out. With the current economy, you can find these used with good mileage for under 20k dollars. A steal in my book.
