2003 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback w/Air Conditioning (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)

Review

I Bought it with 76,000 miles. IMA battery was replaced and all recalls/updates completed. I drive 240 miles a day from Tucson to Phoenix and back. I have 109,000 on it now. Fun to drive but does require a certain personality to drive. Meaning that you can't get on the gas all the time and expect the battery to stay charged. Also staying light on the gas will defiantly improve mileage. If I keep it around 65 I can get over 80 mpg going to Phoenix and around 65 on the trip back(Phoenix is 1526 ft lower than Tucson). So my tank average is around 67 to 72. My worst is around 57mpg but that is a windy day, no drafting, A/C on and going 75+ mph. It can top 90+mpg with drafting and 62mph

Favorite Features

Saving money on gas. It rides on the highway well. Turns a lot of heads.

Suggested Improvements

A more comfortable seat for the long drives. I find myself sliding down and sitting back up quite a bit. Really, A cassette player in 2003? It would not have hurt to have a cruise control. As with all low profile cars....getting in and out is a flop in and roll out situation.
