"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."

"Simply nothing like it. No comparison to my civic or any other car that I have ever driven or ridden in. Nimble, quick, aggressive and a blast to drive on back roads or around corners in general. Make sure you get a 2006 or newer and expect to pay $20K for something that’s worth keeping for a while. I bought this car 10 months ago and I have to say it is the best car I have ever driven. Period. It’s not the fastest car out there, but it sure is no slouch. Around high speed or banking curves, this car is at home! I didn’t know what turn it was like until I got behind the wheel of the S2000. It really dives into any corner flat! 0-60 in around 5.5seconds and a 0-100 in about 14 seconds is quick for a car that only has 237HP/2.2L naturally aspirated engine. The horsepower comes on late, so you better be ready to shift as the rpms climb extremely quick after 6,000rpms (when vtec kicks in). Luckily the 2008 comes with traction control, speakers behind the head rest and a less tail happy back end that both give you a sense that you will not lose it in the corners. The first time I drove an AP1 I broke the back end loose doing a U-turn way too easily, but it wasn't so bad that I couldn't control it. I recommend if this car to anyone looking to have pure fun driving. If you live out of the city this car would be ideal!"

This was the day my baby turned 10! I can't believe two years has already gone by.

"I have had this car since it was brand new (12 years) and love it just as much today as the day I bought it. It has been extremely reliable and the quality is amazing. I do not plan to ever get rid of this car; it is my baby!"
