Known Problems

A buzzing from the transmission when decelerating from 3,000 to 4,000 RPM can be caused by normal gear backlash noise in the transmission. Honda has an updated clutch disc to help reduce the noise. 

There are known convertible top issues.

A problem can occur with a vibrating expansion valve in the AC system and cause a whistling noise from the passengers vent. Replacing the expansion valve with an updated valve from Honda will repair this problem.

Moisture in the shifter housing can cause difficulty in selecting reverse or fifth gear. Removing cleaning and lubricating the shift lever will 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.

The MAP sensor contacts can shift at high RPM causing a hesitation. Replacing the MAP sensor will repair the problem.
A faulty relay can cause the air pump to overheat and set a check engine light. Replacing the relay will fix this issue.
