2004 Honda S2000 — Performance - It's the perfect car for the track. Corners really well, even on street tires. The NA engine is super-responsive, and revs really fast, and has plenty of horses. It has the best shifter I have ever rowed. It weighs 2850 pounds, which is very light for today's standards and makes it a rare, true sports car. Even with the convertible, the chassis is more stiff than many sports coupes. Build Quality - It's a Honda, nuff said. Appearance - It has kind of a timeless roadster look. Not the most flashy, but that's not a bad thing. Cost of Ownership - Except for the fact that I race it, which eats tires and brake pads, it is extremely low maintenance. Fun Factor - Light, tossable, revs to 8K, and will outcorner just about any street car out there.

Honda S2000,great Little Car — I must say for a rag top and a normally aspirated 2.0L engine, Wow what an awsome machine.50/50 weight balance,great power and lightweight construction make for an extremely exciting ride. I bought one almost as they where launched here in South Africa June 04, my model didnt have any traction control or any of those driver aids as the more recent models do. This was for me one of reasons i bought her, pure driving thrill and poooooo in you pants stuff if you where a little to clever.I often took on M3's, Scoobies etc without feeling like the underdog. That short range shifter and power band kept you in the running.Great little car,not when you start having kids though, she's not ideal for baby seats.

My Affordable Little Roadster — I love the responsiveness this car has. The sporty look balanced with the gas mileage and solid performance makes this the perfect car for me. I've kept up with scheduled maintenance and have yet to have it leave me stranded on the side of the road. At 58,000 miles and 4 years old, she's barely broken in!

Pros

handles extremely well around corners, and with the 8,200 rpm redline and 240 horsepower the car has the power a roadster needs.

Cons

Not a practical car to have by its self if you're raising a family or like driving your friends around.

Quick And Nimble — Driving the Honda S2000 is like a dream, when getting into the car you fit perfectly comfortable in well crafted leather seats with the option of cool wind in your hair. The S2000 moves the way you want it to by handling every turn with ease, there is no obstacle an S2000 can't conquer that is of course unless you're driving through a foot of snow but in any case you want to drive that car when you can put the top down and no other car does it any better.

Pros

Everything about this car is a pro!

Cons

The top is known to tear where the bar rubs against the corner of the soft top. But this is easily repairable. A great car!

Awesome Car! — I love this car. It is sporty and handles extremely well. Having the option to take the top down is super fun. Feel very cool driving this car. Highly recommended. Probably the best engineering Honda has ever come up with.

Honda Quality In A Beautiful Sports Car That Is Fun To Dirve; Handles Like A Dream. — This car is fun to drive and handles like a dream; gets decent gas mileage (18 to 20 in town and 28 to 30 on the highway). Great perfromance/accerlation. It is a beautiful car and you will have heads turning everywhere you go. The top is so easy to put down and up, only takes a few minutes. I have done it many times at stop lights. Plenty of leg room even if you are tall and have long legs; very comfortable seating. Visibility is great with this car, maybe because it is small. Car has been very low maitenance; in 6.5 years other than regular oil changes (Synthetic Oil) and new tires, have had no maintenance expense. Replaced the front brake pads this past year. Air conditioning and heat both work great. Do not use the AC much, normally if it is nice out, just put the top down. If I did not have grandkids to run around, I would not sell this car. Of all the cars I have owned and driven, this one is by far my favorite.

Fun To Drive — Looks great, transmission is smooth, great gas mileage very low maintenance , good city car, not good for long trips.stereo needs more power, you have to rev the motor to get the power out of the motor. Convertible top goes up or down in only 6 sec.

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

Great Driving Car! — If only I could afford this car I would be buried in it. The shifter/transmission mechanism is silky smooth and the seats fit you like a glove. Awesome agility and confident lines highlight this car as one of the most desirable automobiles in its class.

Most Fun You Can Have With Your Clothes On. — I love it. Handles very well. Power with the supercharger is incredible. The build quality is true Honda reliability. Appearance well it's a two seater sports, convertible need I say more? Stock it's good on gas, boosted it's a fuel monster. Fun is an understatement
