Many People Want More Torq Out Of This Car Which Was Delivered In Later Models. —

If your into convertibles or sporty coupes than this is the car for you. Simply put it is a masterpiece of engineering by Honda. There was so much research and development that it vexed tuners for several years after its release on how to obtain true performance gains. Everything about the car is is in tune to the drivers needs and wants. Lets start with the simple yet tasteful leather interior with comfortable sport bucket seats that hold you in place when really attacking those corners :D. The digital dash keeps the driver up to date with everything going on with their driving experience with simple and in no way subtle digital read outs. no eyeballing the needle in this baby! All of the Honda s2000's come with a 6spd close gear ratio transmission that was well built from day one and only improved upon there after. The close ratio gears means you will always be at the exact rpm when you want it :). the car will never feel strained no matter how easy or hard you drive it. This car takes to the road like flipper to water. These cars boast a modest 2.0 ltr 4 cylinder engine with a not so modest 250hp!! to put things in perspective that is is about as much power as your average turbo charged car. The 2.0 s2000 engine has a whopping 9,000 rpm rev limit making power all the way to the end. "average car is 6-7000rpm" This might be the masterpiece of this beauty right here. a race built engine which utilizing Honda's greatest accomplishment. V-tech which is a variable cam system which for the sake of this article will be described only as the Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde of engine performance. With the wind in your hair feel, the tight and precise cornering, and care free drive ability of the car. This car should make anyones wish list for a sport compact to hit the streets in.

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

Pros: Fantastic fun car, an almost perfect street car from the factory

Cons: very compact, you must be too! a little on the expensive side to maintain

Best Roadster Bang For The Buck — handling is incredible, acceleration not bad with 240 hp and little weight, braking I changed for circuit so its great now, its a Honda so I've had 0 issues in 8 years, maybe just the clutch that gets stuck a little. appearance is still beautiful. ITs fun and easy to maintain, can't beat it.

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

Pros: handling, sports feel, looks amazing

Cons: I had to change some things to import to Europe

My S2000 — Performance is great, disapointing it is all top end power. Bottom end has very little torque. Handeling is amazing, if your not running decent rubber on the back you'll be slipping out though! as the tail gets abit "happy" sometimes. Cant complain with the exterior appearance looks very sleek and beautiful without any work done to it. Interior could do with some adjustments as its abit dull. The stock seats are a pain in the bum when on track as it gets uncomfortable. All in all great car.

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

Pros: everything

Cons: low end torque

Awesome — 11.1:1 Compression Ratio, 1997CC oversquare design w/ FRM sleeves, DOHC VTEC makes for 240 HP @ 8300 RPMs. Front and rear double wishbone suspension with a torque sensing limited slip differential and the best shifting 6-speed manual in the world makes my car fun!

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

Pros: It's the best driving experience on 4 wheels.

Cons: It's small and a maintenance queen.

Hottttttnessssssssssss — Revs for miles and handles like a go-kart! Reliability is probably the worst of any Honda though...Wheel bearings went out and the rear ends are weak which sucks. The convertible top is the best in the warm months though!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roadster!

Cons: Wheel bearings/rear end.

Great Car! — If you are looking for a fun car to drive than this is it. The redline is way up there and you will spend every opportunity trying to find it! It does have a trunk, and the top goes up so quickly you can drop it (or put it up) at a stop light with no problem.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun and reliable

Cons: none

Damn I Miss It — I so freaking miss the S, it did everythin very well, minus the fact that I wanted more power from it and sold it for the VolStang...I honestly miss this car a TON. Going to buy another when I get the ball rolling on Nursing school.

Pros: Everything about it is right

Cons: no reasons to avoid this car unless you are a torque slut

My First Car — The handling of this car is AMAZING; said to outhandle the viper by .03 g's. And there is something to be said for a 2.0 liter engine revving all the way up to 9,000 RPM without modification. Always nice to throw the top down too and just go for a cruise.

Pros: The handling.  This car is a canyon carver!

Cons: Can't take a more than 1 passenger!!!

Love My Car — Awesome car...theres nothing like revving it to 9000 in 3rd gear. Its a beauty to look at, cheap to fill up, fun to drive, and i just dropped about 1500$ on a system. the car is perfect for me at 5'7'' but mite be uncomfortable for someone 6' or taller.

Pros: awesome car

Cons: premium, but still gets about 24 mpg

This Car Is The Product Of Honda's Relentless Pursuit Of Sports Purity. — Quite possibly the best handling car in it's class with one of the smoothest 6 speeds I've ever driven. Wave goodbye to overpriced Boxters and Z4s whose performance falls short. This is a pure roadster with Honda reliability. You have to give props to Honda for giving their all in this car. Happy 50th bday! 9000rpm, 120hp/L, Front Midship RWD. This car is amazing.

Pros: Razor-sharp handling, great acceleration, incredible transmission, 9000rpm, Honda reliability.

Cons: Hard to think of any except for those inherent in all roadsters, practicality, a power hardtop would have been nice.
