2004 Honda Insight Hatchback 2dr Hatchback w/Air Conditioning (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


Review

For two years I wanted an Insight. I talked myself out of it because it was a two seater. I decided to buy a Think electric car instead, but Ford stopped that one. Last Summer (2003) I decided to go for it. I ordered an Insight and it took 6 months for it to arrive.Then, I got the car. It is the best car ever made. On trips I regularly exceed 80 mpg. It handles like a sports car. It goes around corners like water thru a hose as they say. And it's roomy inside. Just my favorite car I've ever owned. Everything works great.


Best Features

Gas mileage,appearance, and exceptional handling are my favorite features. It is simply the best car on the market right now. I'm 56 years old and have owned 11 vehicles. This is the most awesome.The best.


Worst Features

Make it so that one can raise or lower the electric windows without having the engine on. The outside rear view mirrors distort space.

Review

The fuel economy is incredible! Even though the car is rated at only 87hp, it has plenty of power. Unfortunately, it is not equipped with cruise control, to which I have become accustomed. Also, rear visibility has been sacrificed in the interest of styling.


Best Features

Gas-electric hybrid engine is very quiet, and gets at least 50 mpg.


Worst Features

Larger windows needed at rear corners to improve visibility when backing out of a parking space.

Review

This car is cheeper in gas then the payment. I was spending nearly $400 pr month in gas commuting in my Dodge, but now with the low monthly payment and gas together is less then $300.00 Thank You Matt Adams for making this deal work for me!!!!!!


Best Features

What caught my eye, was the pearl blue color that I had always wanted, but I always ended up with a dark color car and it would be so hot in the summer. I knew I wanted a lighter color,stays clean longer too.


Worst Features

I would like it if they would come in a convertible.
