    Perfect For A Young Single Individual, Or A Young Couple — It's quick, handles great, and ladies love it :D The ability to rev out to 8300 RPM is uncommon for me, but it's quite euphoric. Cruising down the highway at 90MPH at midnight with the top down is also quite a religious experience. The expected Honda build quality makes the car feel solid and reliable. I feel like I'll be holding onto this bad boy for a good couple of years.

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

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: If you don't like convertibles.

    -> Warning: This Car Is Not For Everyone, Especially For The Faint Of Heart And Skill. — -> The cost of ownershp factor is surprisingly decent. Coming from an AWD car, the maintenance factor is somehow close to average. This car may not be on the extreme levels of performance. It does not accelerate like the GT-R or grip like any Lotus' lineup. But all in all it delivers enough goods to make you smile, even driving at the posted speed limit, which means that this is a 'safe car' to drive; you don't have to go buck wild to have fun with it!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: -> More smiles per gallon; what more can I say?

    Cons: -> If you need more than two seats and the need to carry a lot of stuff.

    Honda S2000: I'd Buy Another One Tomorrow. — I really feel that anyone who appreciates the "classic sports car" - convertible, two seats, rear wheel drive - owes it to themselves to drive, and likely buy, a Honda S2000. I purchased my 2004 in January of 2007 with a little under 14K miles on it, having been interested in them since they were introduced in 2000. It has been a wonderful ownership experience. Zero problems, zero issues, zero annoyances. Driving an S2000 is like driving two cars at once. Just driving around town, it will rather sedately return 27-28mpg. If you really cane it, however, it goes like heck. It's a different kind of fast than something like a Corvette though - all the power is up high. My only complaint with the build quality is the leather seats - it's not the best leather in the world, and the seat bolsters can wear prematurely if not well cared for. Appearance is, of course, a personal matter, but I think the S2000 is a beautiful car that has stodd up well over time. It's beautiful in any color. Of course, this is a sports car, so the trunk is on the small side. You won't be hauling around large bags of mulch in an S2000. But as sports cars go, the trunk is plenty big. The best part? I'd have to say the power convertible top. Release the two latches at the top of the windshield header, then flip a switch, and in several seconds, that's it. There really aren't any downsides, if you understand that this is a high performance sports car. It's got a small trunk, it runs on premium gas, it's louder than a luxury car, and it doesn't ride like a luxury car. But you don't buy a sports car for that stuff. I would buy another one tomorrow. Best car I've ever owned, by a landslide.

    Pros: Handling and performance; styling; build quality; the wonderful 6 speed transmission; well equipped; reliable as the universe

    Cons: Tire wear; low front bumper is easy to scrapy on driveways

    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.

    Pros: Lightweight, cornering, engine

    Cons: Only 2 seats

    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.

    Pros: Awsome performance,great handling.

    Cons: Only a 2 seater.

    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: power, style, value-holding ability

    Cons: premium fuel. unable to rotate tires, lack of interiior amenities

    Great Weekend Car — I loved this car. It was my 1st "real" car. I bought it myself when I was a senior in High School. It drove nice, the handling was awesome. There were 2 things I didn't like: one, it was a little too small for me and the top leaked constantly even after several trips to the dealership.

    Pros: Looked hot, great handling

    Cons: too small and top leaked

    The Thrill Of My Life — A car so inexpensive and can beat the Boxter with ease. 6 gear manual with an engine that roars up the on ramp.

    Pros: This is my kind of car

    Cons: Insurence is crazy!!!!
