"Had foreign sports car growing up. Had a 3000 Mk 2 Healy& a 1969 MG Midget. Both a lot of fun but lots of maintenance. The S2000 is fantastic. Get in it and go. Totally reliable. Handles like a dream. Every time I get in it,it's like the first time. Styling is simple but to drive it is another thing. Surprised that Honda fazed it out."

More reliable than and American auto.

"I have owned this Honda S2000 for 15 years and must say, for the price, it is superior to a Porsche 911 that I owned previously. The only parts needed to be replaced were the tires due to dry rot. Since I use 2 other autos, the Honda sits in the garage until ideal conditions occur. I would not think of selling it for the Kelley blue book price."

"This is a "wow" eye-catcher car! It is the best car I have ever owned. I can't stop smiling when I am behind the wheel. I have owned this car for over 10 years and love it just as much today as the day I bought it. People always comment to me about how beautiful a car it is. It is as timeless as the clock. I will never find another car that I will have loved this much!"

"I've owned my 2003S since new and have had nothing but good things to say about this car. It's not for someone who wants to just look good driving a convertible. This car is definitely a "Driver's car." If you don't like shifting to attain the last ounce of torque out of the 240 HP 4 cylinder engine, than this is not the car for you. I like to drive curvy roads, with the top down and the exhaust note resonating in my ears. If you like to drive, I don't believe that you can find a more pure sports car out there. Just put the car up for the Winter, can't wait for 2015 driving season."

"I have owned corvettes, a BMW-Z4, and a Porsche Boxster and the Honda S-2000 is the most responsive car I have driven. The track times may not support that statement but the track times can't measure the sheer joy felt when driving the S-2000 to it's limits. Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde best describe the S-2000's personality. On straight roads and keeping the RPM's under 5000, The S-2000 is just a very cute little 2-seater convertible; But put it on a road that resembles Marilyn Monroe's silhouette and keep the RPM's above 6000 and you will not be able to stop giggling. It's not a 0-60 car: It's much more fun than that. Best of all; Honda reliability still lives, even with an 8000RPM redline."
