2000 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback
The idea to combine an ecology friendly electric powered vehicle with the
convenience of gasoline power (fill up on any corner) is futuristic & long
overdue. Last fall I bought one for my teen daughter. She drives it non-stop &
loves the great gas mileage: 50-60 mpg. Whenever I catch it at home, it's my
car of choice to drive. I love zippin' around town & into tight parking places.
Each driver in the family brags on who's getting the best mpg, each trying to
top the other. It's a blast to drive, with fun instrumentation! We've put 12K
miles on it in 6 months and the only problem we've had it in the shop for was
a battery harness recall and suggested periodic maintenance.
I love the instrumentation. The light bars that tell you when to shift for
optimum performance and the battery and fuel level indicators are really cool.
The battery charging and assist lights are great too. It's like playing a video
game to see if you can keep your gas mileage and battery up.
Need a four seater version with more interior storage space.
