2005 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


Review

What a refreshing, wonderful experience: a car I've bought that does exactly what I expected and a lot more plus is saving me MORE and MORE money every day. I love it. Plenty of power, fantastic mileage. When it hits 200,000 miles, I'll definitely buy another Honda Insight!


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, in excess of 64mpg and sometimes as high as 75mpg (mostly freeway driving in So. Calif at 65mph. with A/C climate control on. Easy to park. Very peppy if needed. Very quiet, comfortable. Safe !


Suggested Improvements

Center console armrest. Bigger elect motor for even more power w/solar panels to boost electrics and to be used when car is parked to run 12v A/C.
