Buying this car was the smartest thing I have ever done. I bought it just before the gas prices exploded. Thanks HONDA! I love to drive it! I parked in A very small parking place. the three men sitting on the bench watching me gave me a standing ovation when i got out of the car.
For economy, the only car I feel could beat the Insight would be an electric car recharged with solar panels. Its aerodynamics makes it almost uneffected by wind for safety as well as energy efficiency. Only drawback is that it carries onlt 2 people, but the space is very ample and comfortable for those 2 people. I know I can race any car on the road to the end of our tanks, and win. The place where it wins the nicest is at the pump at every fillup.
I have no complaints with its performance from the coast to the mountains. Except in mtns, I can get 62 MPG consistently. 620 miles on a 10.6 gal tank is almost unbelievable, but it's true. The accurate MPG display times 10 tells how far you can go with the first 10 gal before using the .6 gal left.
Cruise control should be at least available. I added it to a 2002 Insight I had and it was fantastic. I'm not having the same success with my 2004. Also a sunroof added to my 2002 with the CC assured its sale and made another satisfied Insight owner. Neither feature was available from Honda.
This car is the coolest thing around.
There's no other car in the world where
you drive in style and get 75mpg at the
same time. I've owned my Insight for
4yrs now I get close to 800 miles per
tank. I would highly recommend this car
to anyone who wants to save their money
and not give it away to the Billionares
on the oil companys, at the same time
your saving the enviroment. You will
get so many looks and questions
everywhere you go. Four years later an
I still get questions everytime I fill
up well that's every month and a
half.... If you want to save you money
and use it for something else buy a
Honda Insight you'll the car and
attention that comes with it....
the all aluminum body is great it's
lite and stronger than steel bodied
cars. The 75 mpg and the almost 800
miles per tank is a major PLUS!!
The seats could use a little more
support, other than that this car is
This is by far the best car I ever
drove. It handles great, goes as fast
as I want, and gets over 80 mpg on the
highway. It has plenty of cargo
space. Just driving it and seeing the
effect of my formerly heavy left foot
on the mileage has transformed my
driving from the usual "get there
first" attitude to "get there in my own
sweet time", and I enjoy driving much
more now without the usual rush. If
you're man enough to let go of beating
everyone else you'll love it.
The trip and instant mileage features,
plus the bragging rights to the highest
mileage on the planet.
A seat cushion for long trips, and
upgrades to the stereo.
