2007 Honda S2000 Problems
A problem can occur with a vibrating expansion valve in the AC system which causes a whistling noise from the passengers vent. Replacing the expansion valve with an updated valve from Honda should repair this problem.
The S2000 is set up with aggressive alignment settings and soft tire compounds to enhance handling. These alignment settings and soft tire compounds result in tires wearing out earlier than anticipated. This is a compromise made to have a car with exceptional handling characteristics.
Some S2000's can develop a problem with the transmission popping out of fourth gear. A new updated fourth and fifth gear assembly will repair the problem. The transmission will have to be removed and disassembled for this repair.
There is an issue when the ignition switch is on for about four or more hours. The powertrain control module (PCM) can misinterpret serial data and cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A software update from Honda will repair this problem.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
The braking system uses an assist device called a brake booster. These vehicles use a brake booster that is operated by engine vacuum and in certain cases the booster may not be able to maintain a vacuum when the brake pedal is depressed. This will result in reduced braking assistance, requiring additional force on the brake pedal to stop the vehicle. Dealers will inspect the brake booster and replace it as necessary.
2007 Honda S2000 Reviews
The S2000 suprised me for the quality of its finish and body work. It has an aluminum hood, an excellent folding top, and a very clean under hood arrangement. The tonner cover fits nicely and the top is electrically accuated. It automatically lowers the two windows before the top begins to go down or up. The four cylinder engine has 16 overhead valves and drives at slower speeds in the city but really purrs when at higher speed on the freeways. We drove it from Stockton Ca to Purdon Tx and back and it was a real pleasure to dirve. The only problem I've noticed is occasional grabbing of the left front brake. Of course, to get it to grab when I take it to the dealer is impossible, but recently it has not grabed. The cloth top fits very well. We drove up from Los Angeles to Monterey on the coast highway in a pouring rain most of the way and had not one drop of rain come into the interior of the vehcile. I am not a very large person, but the seats are form fitting and the part that I sit on is a little too tight for my bottom. I have about 10,000 plus miles on it and cannot say enough good things about it. This is my fifth sports car, and far an away the best. The 237 hp 4cly engine really performs and purrs like a kitten at high speeds. I would definitely buy another it I were replacing it--which will probably not be any time in the foreseeable future. Oh, one other thing, in cold weather the heater performs very well and the interior is comfortable. In hot weather here in the valley the air conditioner also performs well.
