Default Doug DeMuro S2000 Review

Even he missed the secret compartment in his famous quirks and cool features!

and yet, he still loved the car! BYS seat rails and he'd sell that wagon and leave the kids at home!

Considering how obscure most of the things he mentions are in his car reviews...I could not believe he did not talk about the secret compartment!!!

A friend linked me to his review this morning. I guess he didn’t do his research because the most interesting quirk is the secret compartment!

I might have missed it, but I don't think he talked about how it's front-mid engined, either. And he missed the chance to talk about how it had the highest N/A hp/L for 10 years.

I like his reviews, but this one felt rushed. Unfortunately he missed some really cool points on the S2000.

I must be the minority here then. I don't enjoy this guy's review at all. Granted, my sample size is very small, I only watched some of the NSX review and now the S2000 video so maybe his other reviews are better. I find him misinformed and does not appear to be a car enthusiast at all and border lining annoying and douche baggy.

As pointed out above posts already he missed bunch of cool stuff about the s2000 and the fact he found it "slow" tells me he doesn't understand the s2000 at all. On the NSX video he made a big deal about the sliding volume control touch interface and push button gear selector which are common on all Honda/Acura products.

I much rather watch Alex on Autos or Engineering Explained if I wanted to learn something about a car.

How much do you expect to learn from a reviewer about a car you already own? Doug is more on the entertainment side of things, but I like how he goes through the quirks of the cars and doesn't pretend to be a race car driver giving you a ton of driving impressions that may or may not be garbage.

I like Doug's reviews - I feel like it really helps me "get to know" a car as an experience. The one thing I would critique is he says too much about the "acceleration" or "handling" without even revving that high (S2k was an exception, cuz you have too) or taking corners at anywhere near the car's limits (not that you should on public roads). You can't really tell how a car handles by driving it normally on public roads - you're basically feeling how direct the steering is and how much body roll it has, which are only fractions of how a car "handles."
