    One Of The Best Pure Sports Car Available Today. — This S2000 provides one of the purest driving experiences out there. I would recommend this car for people that want a Miata with more power or an Elise with more practicality. The engine is a masterpiece of engineering and it never gets old taking it to the 9,000 rpm redline. The transmission is one of the best in the world, and I've found myself changing gears just for fun on more than one occasion. The chassis provides excellent grip, but you must use high performance tires. If you autocross or track an S2000 regularly, buying three sets of rear tires per year is not uncommon. Tracks, autocrosses, and twisty back roads are where this car thrives. The steering is direct, if a bit numb. The drawbacks are few for a sports car. The ride, especially on the 00-03, is stiff. Every pavement irregularity and bump will make itself known. The cockpit is a bit cramped with the top up, but there is plenty of head and leg room for six-footers. Also, there are only two small storage bins and neither of them are easy to use while driving. At interstate speeds with the top up, the wind and tire noise can be pretty loud. These drawbacks will turn a lot of people off who are looking for a convertible fashion statement, but those looking for a pure sports car won't care. Some will say the car is twitchy and prone to oversteer, but I believe this is one of the few cars on the market with truly neutral handling. It rewards a skilled hand, and it can punish the ham-fisted. The bottom line. If you want a nice daily driver convertible that's fun on the back roads, an NC Miata might be a better choice. If you want a track and autocross car that sees a little road duty now and again, an Elise might be worth saving up for. Between these two extremes the S2000 gives you the best of both worlds for a decent price. It's also worth noting that mine is now four years old and has given me no trouble whatsoever.

    Pros: Power, handling, trunk space (for a roadster), grip, 9,000rpm engine, reliable

    Cons: Loud at highway speeds, a bit cramped, stiff ride, but hey it's a sports car.

    Fun Car To Drive — This is a blast to drive and it handles like it is on rails. It is small and nimble and very quick. You can't go wrong with a car like this based on the cost to own and fun per gallon.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome car to drive and when the weather is nice the top goes down

    Cons: noisy on the hwy

    My Honda S2k,my Personal Experience — Power in it's category in unsurpased. I love the handling and how high it revs, it goes forever. It's got reliablity and parts are relatively cheap, It is a true sports car and an instant classic at a fairly affordable price. If I can afford one, I guess 95 % of the population can too.LOL. Also the tuning and customization options are virtually limitless. You can personalize the S2000 to the point that is unique withthout having to spend a truckload of money.

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

    Pros: An amazing driving experience. I won't get rid of this machine ,ever.

    Cons: I got it a few months ago,low miles and I haven't find a con so far, not 1.
