I thought I have to warn you about this car which I missed in my previous review. s2000 is a very fast and as I told before a very seductive car. Because of its f1 sound your adrenalin level gets higher and higher and you want to go faster. This can be a very dangerous thing indeed. You have to persuade not to hit the throttle as much as you can and make the speed you that you believe you can control... Otherwise this car can really be deadly... I think of this car as a racing motor with a… Read Full Review

Hi friends!! I'm from Istanbul TURKEY. I bought my s2000 in 2005 and be the first owner. This car has always been my dream car since its introduction in 1999. But when I owned it I realized that the s2k is a real legend. I can't call it the fastest car in the world because it isn't, I can't call it the best handling car because it isn't. But one thing I can say about this car is that after 5000 rpm this car turns into a beast and makes you forget about all the fastest cars... All of the body… Read Full Review

I have a new Aston Martin which is gorgeous and sounds sweet but it can not match my S2000 for the sheer fun of driving. The S2000 would surely force a smile on even the most manic depressive. I love it.... but am about to be a VERY reluctant seller. 3 things I don't hear mentioned enough - the fastest convertible roof in the world?; awesome ergonomics/design which allow the driver to operate the a/c and stereo without taking hands off the steering; and the amazing heating system means… Read Full Review

Massive acceleration over 6000 rpms. Beautiful gas mileage when kept under 6000 roms. PERFECT 50/50 balance enables the car to handle unbelieveably. Honda reliability and dependability. Everytime you start the car up, it brings a smile to your face because you know you're going to own the road once you leave your parking spot.
The cars a beast. The acceleration is breath taking. 0-60 in 5.8 and a 1/4 mile in 13.8 is very impressive. 120hp per liter is INSANE. Once you drive the car, you will… Read Full Review

Much has been written in these reviews about the qualities, characteristics and statistics surrounding the Honda S2000 and there is little that a test drive wouldn't readily confirm, particularly some of the myths. There has been too much emphasis on the S2000 being loud, raw, tail happy and all other things associated with your average track dat car. Lets clear this one up. Around town and at moderate speeds this car is a peach. Up to 5,500 revs which will deliver over 90 mph in 6th, the… Read Full Review

I bought my Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster from new, in Stratstone (best colour), with optional bodykit. It is the fastest car I have ever owned. Build quality and solidity of chassis is fantastic and the engine is a dream over 6k revs. I've raced everything... S3's, Subaru's, Porsche Boxster 3.2 S, SLK's, Mercedes CLS500, BMW Z4 2.0i as well as your average BMW driver and the car's performance (in the dry) has always astonished the rival.

I had a budget and wanted a car to make me smile. I looked at a z3/4, everyone's got one, and found a boxster in my price range, tried it, then came across an S2000. I drove it, loved it, bought it, and have not looked back. There are not many on the road. I'm still smiling. It's got blistering performance, a screeming high rev engine and good economy when driven below 5000 revs (only by the wife). If you want a practical day to day work/shop runaround its not for you.

First time owned a Honda and test drove the S2000 out of curiosity and was hooked! What an interesting car it is with a screaming 9,000 rpm 240 bhp engine out of just 2 litres. Docile it can be at low revs with a light clutch mated to a sweet slick 6 spd gearbox. Quick steering, great brakes and a car that goes through bends like no other I've driven, real sports car unhindered by traction control, but with ABS just in case !

The Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster is the best overall performance car I have ever owned, even compared to my 1965 442 Oldsmobile convertible, through to my last BMW M3. The mid range acceleration, over 6,000 rpm, is awesome. I was afraid that comfort would be a problem after a few hours, but was surprised to find that not to be the case. I drove it for 9 hours with only gas stops without any problems. I wish they would add an integrated top cover similar to the Boxster's. The cup holder location… Read Full Review

I got a Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster Sports Car after driving the Mazda RX-8, Audi TT, BMW Z4, and MB SLK. My choosing the S2000 was a function of my wallet and a style of performance that evoked fond memories of my '94 Toyota MR2, to which the S2000 is a worthy successor. While I'd have to say that I slightly prefer the styling of the MR2, the drop top and performance more than make up for any deficiency.

I drove every possible car at all price ranges (i'm lucky enough to be able to afford most cars) but from M3 to CLK55, and Alpina to 350z, only one car stood out true and proud. The s2000.

I recently purchased a 2004 S2000 and all I can say is WOW! I wanted to address the 0-60 times. Road & Track just did a review of the 2004 and their 0-60 times were 5.8 sec.
I took my car down to the local speed shop. I popped the hood and put in an HKS air intake and Comptech stainless exhaust. Just for good measure, I threw on shocks, dropping the car down a full inch and adding a strut brace. All I can say now is...look out.

What a car the Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster. Just picking up the car keys for the first time and getting in the car at the garage was amazing. The new body modifications for the 2004 model with the bigger bumpers, bigger alloys and new front lights give the car a heightened sense of purpose and sporting aggression. Sitting in the car, you feel that with the hood up it is cramped and dark but with the hood down feels nice and airy (obviously).

Owned the Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster for 2 years and it is a blast to own!!! Buy a good radar detector as it refuses to do the speed limit. Low maintenance, though 2 things stand out. Stock tires bald in 10K miles & $600 to replace. They were VERY sticky while cornering and that's the trade off for wear. Honestly was not driven hard. The other item is we live on a short strech of gravel road which is traveled slowly. Suspension loosened up (clunking like worn ball joint) only on that type of… Read Full Review

Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster:
I was looking for a performance roadster of the non-handbag variety, which basically narrowed it down to Boxster v S2000.
As my budget would not stretch to a Boxster S, I was comparing with the standard car and frankly no comparison!
The S2000 is quicker, handles better, especially in the dry and is rarer round my neck of the woods.
I have done a number of track days and generally thrash the goolies off it and it has never skipped a beat, although I go through tyres… Read Full Review

Nothing can beat having the top down and hitting 9000 rpm shooting through country roads. The heating is fantastic, I had the top down cruising to my parents on Xmas day.
Against its competitors nothing can touch the S2000 for value. The TT is dull and boring, the Porsche Boxster S is too expensive (and the normal Boxster too slow and expensive), the Z4 is a great… Read Full Review

I ran a street test of the 0-60 time in my Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster. Honda gives it at just below 6 seconds. From my experience, that's reasonable. Other reported numbers in the low to mid- 5 seconds are questionable. Pre-2004 models reached 60 mph in 2nd gear, saving one shift, but had lower torque at the same RPM. So, results would probably be similar. On a track surface and burning the clutch may of course produce better results than I could. After several trial runs, I made 3 runs in one… Read Full Review

Honda's reputation for reliability persuaded me to buy my Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster, a UK spec import at a 20% discount. At this price nothing can touch it. It begs to be driven hard and stands out from the boring Z4s, Boxters and TTs that proliferate roads in the SE.

I bought my Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster on Saturday, Jan. 17th 2004. I used to own two other sports cars (MX5 and the MR2) and I find that the MX5 tends to be tinny and cheap and the MR2 is "pretty", however, it lacks power. I find the S2000 very exhilirating, what a "fun" car. I'm pretty sure it's not mid-life crisis for me. I just happen to like cars that fit like a glove and cars that can be "one with the driver".

This Honda S2000 2.0i Roadster is a bit of a double-edged sword. Almost all of its strengths are also, in other ways, its weaknesses.
When you buy a Honda, you know you're not getting a tempermental British or Italian thoroughbred that will require frequent and expensive visits to the shop.

Still turning heads after 3.5 years of ownership.
A very easy car to live with. Dependable, reasonably practical (for a sports car) and fun to drive.
Wonderfully quick, although has a tendancy for oversteer which less enthusiastic drivers may find a little concerning. Later models have revised suspension geometry designed to reduce the oversteer.
Engine improves with miles. Starts very tight but really matures.
Needs revs for best performance. Lazy drivers should look elsewhere.
