Fun car, but only for two
By Constance Van Valken on


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


I bought the Insight for its excellent mileage. During the summer I did indeed get 56 MPG, but in the winter it came down to 52.6. I carry a passenger sometimes, as well as groceries et al. Took it to Maine from the Midwest last summer. Wonderful trip. Could have used a cruise control, but otherwise could not fault its sports car handling. I used the AC, and still got 55 plus mpg. So nice to ignore all those gas stations, and get 600 miles per fill up. Love the car, even in winter. Heater excellent. Three cylinders make for a quick pickup with the help of the electrics. Never have run out of electric help when needed.

Best Features

Style, storage, bucket seats. Easy touch lights, turn signals, windshield washers and wipers. Height inside enough for tall man. Bright lights for safety. Fast pickup. Front wheel drive. Radio very good.

Worst Features

Cruise control would be a real bonus.
