My 2000 Honda Insight is a joy to
drive. It is surprisingly fast,
considering its main draw is fuel
economy & low emissions. The
aerodynamic fairing is close to the
ground, and consequently I had an
adverse encounter with curbing--the
plastic & rubber spoilers are fairly
fragile but easily repaired. I have had
absolutely no other problems. When
driving in daylight, turning on the
headlights dims the instrument panel
too much, even in cloudy weather & no
cruise control is available. Otherwise,
it's a perfect little car & a great
piece of engineering design.
Fun to drive, fast & very comfortable.
I get 60 mpg overall & up to 72 on long
freeway trips. Other people see it &
love it -- lots of waves & high 5's.
Plenty of room for 2 people & big
suitcase. Regnerative braking is a neat
Needs cruise control & a dimmer
override on the digital instrument
panel so you can see it better when
driving with lights on in daylight.
