It's true! My 2004 Insight batteries just crapped out at 130k and the dealer told me the parts alone were over $4500. After reading your post I called them back and challenged the warranty and sure enough the repair is covered. It also helped that even though this car was not purchased new it was originally sold by this dealer and I have had them do all the regular maintenance. I ... Read More
Just got two certified 2010 Honda Insight EX(s) (2K and 5K miles, no Navi) here in Fayetteville, AR. for ~18,400 a piece on March 24th, 2010. They didn't really compromise on the price any more, but after getting a trade-in of $7500 on our 2004 Honda Element (w/ 108K miles), my wife and I walked away with a combined note of $550/month (60 months). Not too bad I think and we're ... Read More
Just a heads up for everyone: I just had my 2004 Insight battery & control module replaced under warranty. I'm the original owner and have 51,000 miles on the car. The IMA light came on and the dealer recommended the replacement, gave me a free loaner while it was being done, etc. - I was treated well... That's the good news. The bad news is that the new battery and control ... Read More
I live in Canada and recently bought a 2004 Navy Blue Honda Insight CVT at a Seattle area dealer for about list price. I must be the only guy in the world still interested in the Insight or CVT dealer. Essentially the strong message I got from Western Canadian dealers is we don't have any, we haven't had any, we aren't getting any and we don't want to get any, and ... Read More

2005 Insight -- I was just in my local Honda dealership yesterday and they had glossy 2-page brochures on the 2005 Insight. It included info on color choices and so forth. The car looks exactly like the earlier models. The in-dash CD player is standard. The interior color is a beige. With this info out there it looks like Honda will produce at least some 2005 Insights.
Looks like 2004 is the last year for Honda-Insight. I dont see the 2005 model in Honda's website itself while it is available for all other models. Honda must have designed it as a 4-Seater vehicle using its hatchback design. After all smaller Mini seats 4. Sad indeed.
Hi All: ___The Insight will be available in 2005 w/ no changes. It will be available to those that order one as of this writing. If you order one through your Honda dealership, you can expect to pay close to or at MSRP. You might find a dealership to order one for a grand or so over Invoice if you place a non-refundable large percentage of MSRP down payment possibly? MSRP ... Read More
Well, looks like Honda has announced that Insight WILL be built for 2005. But, the problem is, they said there will be NO changes from the 2004 model. Problems with this: 1. They will not be including any advances in hybrid technology (batteries, motors, wiring, etc.) that they've learned. So, should one buy a Civic or Accord hybrid instead? Are/Will they be significantly "better" because they are "newer" technology? 2. I ... Read More
This is in the UK, not a bad deal, now if they did this in the US xcel would be one happy camper - snip - Honda Hunts High-Mileage Insights - Honda has started to look for the driver who has done the highest mileage in its original petrol/electric hybrid model, the Insight coupé. It will present the owner of the best-presented 100,000 miles-plus Insight with one of its current Civic ... Read More

This is the Honda Isight board so why are you posting last year's Prius articles? Initially neither Toyota's offering Prius or Honda's offering were profitable. Bascially they were a step beyond prototype limited availabiltiy to the public as a "loss-leader". The concept was accepted by the public and both Honda and Toyota have moved on. However, there are strong rumors of a Insight II in late 2005. The 2004 Prius the ... Read More

Is a 2003 Isight worth buying? What should the price be? It seems as the new 2004 Prius will elcipse the Honda Hybreds. Honda salesmen don't even carry the insight at lagre dealerships. The Insight and this board appear to be dead.
I agree there is no concrete number on how much Honda and Toyota are losing on each vehicle. It's certain that they are losing money, even though the sticker is already considerably above other similiar non-hybrid products. The $20K is an estimate by industrial analysts. I don't think it's right on the money, but probably in the ball park. Eitherway, like you said, the Prius and Insight are concepts, not meant ... Read More
