Long-term update: Honda S2000 still the cheapest sports car to service
Ah, our Honda S2000 — a pain to drive daily, a pain to keep its roof in good shape, and a pain to keep dings at bay. But damn is it cheap to service.
We just had a major service done at the dealer, and it cost us just Dhs 1055, including wipers, synthetic oil and all sorts of fluids. That’s about as much as a minor service for the Toyota 86. Or about as much as a major service on a basic Honda City!
The Honda dealer is known for its “high” service charges on its regular cars, but heck, we’re not bothered.
