2000 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback
While this is my wife's car I do most of the driving. She drives for high mpg I drive to see how many people I can surprise by going faster than others. Needless to say our average mpg for 40000 miles is 48.
I read in some of the reviews people calling it a good handling car. Not even close, it's just a point and shoot vehicle. Gears 1, 2 & 3 for acceleration (3rd is good for 80 mph and the batteries are being charged!) 4th & 5th are strictly cruising gears, no torque at all. I had to buy a fastener for the rear spat...$17.00 for a screw!! Must be made from gold.
Small outside, roomy and comfortable inside.
Chassis needs to be improved, small cars can handle well. Honda is keeping the car prices down, but they take you to the cleaner for parts. Has anyone had to buy the batteries for the motor assist yet. I can't find out a price, everyone gives me the run around.
