Absolutely a high performance bargain


Two factory recalls for:

(a) Replacement tonneau cover (interfered with a passenger seat belt).

(b) A problem with the seat belt retractor assembly.

Nothing else.

General Comments:

Poor ergonomics in terms of armrest placement, window and mirror control placement, lack of clock, noise, poor speaker placement. But hey, it's a sports car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi my name is John and I think that the Honda S2000 is one of the best cars that are round. It has all the things that a sports car should have.

I'm puzzled... they didn't make this car in 1999... this must be a 2000. I, too, have one. A silver 2000 and, though I love it, it isn't for everybody. I consider it a toy and wouldn't want to drive it every day. Make sure you have another car to drive most of the time as this is a true race car... stiff, fast and you can feel every pebble.
