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


This has been an excellent commuting car for my wife and I. We drive 125 miles round trip everyday. Unlike many of the Prius reviews, we are actually exceeding the DOT Mileage rating. In the winter time we were getting 60 to 62 mpg. With the warmer weather we are now achieveing 68 to 72 mpg. We found that the mileage was a little less for the first 3000 miles, as stated by the dealer, but after that break in period it has been an excellent performer. The car operates as any other car, a little sluggish on the long uphill home, we use third gear instead of fourth on our regular Honda.

Best Features

Mileage and fun to drive. We have also made a couple of 1600 mile trips and have been very pleased with the long distance comfort and mileage. It does only average around 55 mpg when you are driving 80 to 85, but that is still far higher than what we were getting before.

Worst Features

Better aiming of the map lights for night time use, the passenger light tends to bind the driver. Better speakers for the radio/cd player.
