Need Help With This Carfax

Hi everyone, I'm purchasing my first ever s2000 and I am looking at this one in particular with a carfax. It has had 6 owners. Should I be worried or anything? Why has there been so many owners and they have all passed their car on? Is there a problem with it?
Here is the link with carfax to the car.

RUN AWAY!

That is my advice! Run away as fast as you can from this car. The last owner kept her 28 days? do you have any decent photos to share? If it has been modified in any way and is not 99% stock I would keep looking. Don't let the fact that you may have found one in your price range cloud your judgement because if she was abused somewhere between multiple owners you can bet that it will be having issues soon ... if not already. Just my opinion. Now IF you have deep pockets and can afford to maintain/restore/race her what ever your plans are then that is a different situation.

What color is it? I looked at who the dealer is and you may want to read the Yelp reviews Not many good things to say and The VIN # does not match on the Carfax report to the two Suzuka Blue AP-1s they have at this dealership? Hmmm? IF it is either of those Suzuka's I think you may be in for a rude awakening. Good Luck!

Yes they have photos. Its a white s2000 with the tan interior. I didn't know that the vin numbers didn't match with those two vehicles. I'm really glad you told me this. What are some things you could suggest for me, as to buying a used S2000? I didn't know about looking up yelp reviews about dealerships either.

From the carfax it Looks like an S that has missed a tight corner or two. Are you looking for a track car or daily driver?

I would STILL Run Away!

Ok I found the white 03 that matches the Carfax report at the Santa Ana location.
My suggestion still stands based on reading the report and the fact the last owner barely kept her. The front is jacked up and repainted and why no pictures of the engine bay? Have you opened the hood or driven this car, do you know of any leaks or hasty repairs what kind of warranty are they offering? Do you have a trustworthy mechanic familiar with the S2000 you can have look her over THROUGHLY? 6 owners leaves an awful lot of questions as to maintenance history and overall care.

Hi wwaallyy: I'm looking for a daily driver. I'm 22 years old, and it will be my first S2000 No track car.




s2kx2: very true. I have not yet seen the car itself or looked under the hood or anything. I do have a mechanic but from hearing everything about this car so far, I think I'll pass up on it. Doesn't sound worth it.
