2000 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback


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.

Best Features

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 feature.

Worst Features

Needs cruise control & a dimmer override on the digital instrument panel so you can see it better when driving with lights on in daylight.
