Cons: no overdrive
Advice: Enjoy it.I've driven motorcycles for 25 years and have never felt the same feeling of a ride like I have in the s2000. The car gives you every exhilerating, thrilling, unnerving, on-the-egde, feeling that motorcycling does, and then some. I gave up motorcycles for now but I still get home needing a drink of something to wet my dry mouth. It's difficult to ask for a more highway like ride without losing that truly sports car feel. Don't even consider any other sports car unless you go BIG $$. Have Fun!! Thanks Honda...
Pros: The 6 speed transmission
Cons: Lack of oil and amp meters
Advice: Do not allow the dealer to charge ADC or other extra chages.A no frills sports car, a drivers car, not for the freeway. The car is best on the twisty side roads. While it is capable of running all day at speeds of over 130mph, it is happiest at its cornering and performance limits. It is not a car for the faint-hearted. If you can keep the engine rpm's below 5000, you can get 30mph.
Pros: Precision handling
Cons: Interior storage compartments
Advice: WHTCH SPEEDAll I can say is the car is absolutely exhilerating. It handles like no other car I ever owned or driven and that encludes the Boxster, BMW and even the new Corvettes. I bought the car with the Aero Package and appearance wise it makes a big difference. The car is very quick especially in the 6,000 to 8000 RPM range. The torque on the low end is a little weak however, it seems to work perfectly when your just cruising along normally but when you want it to jump into the big league, just hit the petal and let it rev to 8000 RPM and you wont believe it' the same car. Excellent, Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FAST, PRECISION HANDLING, QUALITY WORKMANSHIP and GOOD LOOKING. AN EXCELLENT BOY TOY
