I've always wanted an Insight since they first came out years back. In CA I have the carpool lane sticker, and it's invaluable as it always comes in handy having the extra lane as an option. Car is very reliable and had only minor quirks ( rear view mirror fix, and power window track cleaning ). It is super fun to drive, and has great handling. It is SUPER efficient on gas, and pretty quick and fast as well. There is some storage capability as well, and it's great for So. CA. It might not work as well in rain and snow areas, as it is low to the ground and has small tires, but if you live in a moderate climate, it is really an excellent car to own!!!
The A/C control is very cool and easy to dial in and also has an ECON mode. The digital dashboard display is very cool as well. The way the car accelerates sounds cool, and you get the airplane take off sound as well! Handling and maneuverability is SO awesome with the size as well!!!
An improvement would be to continue making these cars! Also, a better factory sound system and stock alarm system would be nice. Having factory leather seats would be way cool, but that can be done aftermarket!!! It really has SO much value for what it is, that you can't complain!
