I recently purchased a 2008 Honda S2000. I have wanted one since they came out in 2000 but due to family circumstances, I had to delay purchase until now. I wanted a convertible sports car but wanted a reliable and low maintenance one. I know that there are many choices in this class but after looking at reliability, value, and maintenance costs, the S2000 was the obvious choice. I waited 10 year to purchase this car and, boy, was it worth the wait. The S2000 is a true sports car in every sense of the word. Styling: Exterior styling is classic with the long hood and short rump, it looks fast even when standing still. The interior is a no nonsense quality environment that is geared totally with the driving experience in mind. It is a bit snug but I don't consider that a bad thing, especially when carving twisty country roads. Performance: Performance-wise, it is a beast waiting to be unleashed. If you drive it with RPMs under 6k, it is a tame little roadster. If you dare go above 6k RPMs, be prepared for your head to snap back as it rips forward with abandon. Features: It has all of the usual safety features such as airbags, traction control (can be turned off), tire pressure monitoring system, and a whole host of great features that makes this a great choice for both fun and safety. Crash safety ratings are about the best in this class. On top of all that great appearance, interior, features, and performance, it is a convertible to boot. The convertible top only operates when the e-brake is on but raises rather quickly. Snap (or unsnap) the two side latches and watch it raise (or lower) and you are good to go. I have driven mine with the top down about 95% of the time. Love it! I wanted Chicane silver exterior color with a red leather interior however, that color combination was really hard to find. I had to settle for black leather interior (with red stitching). Still love it, though.
The S2000 is bar far the most fun I I've ever had the pleasure of driving! Definitely not a family car by any means and the ride is rough, but what can you expect from Hondas sport car. No room what soever, no glove box and small trunk, but again it's a sports car not a family sedan. Plenty of power in high rpms and shifts are solid! Highly recommend if you want a toy!
