This a 3rd update on our 2010 Honda Insight that we have had now for about a year in a half. It now is December 2011 and the car has 41K on it. At the 40K service, the guys found a worn out axle (left) and the drive shaft assembly was beginning to come apart (!!!!). Luckily, extended warranty covered it and in the process, they reprogrammed the IMA system and auto-stop feature and now the auto-stop engages even in sub 20 degree weather and in stop and go 5 mph traffic, something it didn't do before. The interior has held up fairly well and the stock tires are a joke; they wore out at 26K miles. But its fun to drive.... I just wish we it was better built
Auto-stop feature, IMA information display, USB audio input, stability control.
Better build quality. I know its a hybrid and the components need to be light weight to keep the scales from tipping but at least make it last 10 years without mechanical problems.
Bought new in 2010, after losing my Camry to a head on collision. Have about 91k miles on it now. I love the car for what it is. Never any mechanical problems, I put tons of stuff in the hatch. Would buy another...if they still made them when I finish with this one. Never less than 40 mpg, never better than 45...but I run it pretty hard
We bought the Insight new in May, 2009 as a 2010 model and have driven it 69,000 miles as of September 10, 2014. We have had absolutely no warranty issues and gave replaced only tires and wiper blades! It has a small rear seat for adults, but is comfortable enough for us senior citizens on a 675 mile one-way trip frequently to see our grandkids. Gas mileage is great- 40mpg in our town with a stoplight on every corner and 46 mpg average on the highway at 65-70 mph. This is an extremely reliable car as we expected with a Honda and plan to keep it well past 100,000 miles.
Fuel mileage and great handling. A very manuverable car!
Happy with it overall. I've always liked it more than the cheap plastic hubcAPS2011 restyled Prius. However, I do not like that with EX model, all you are getting is alloy wheels instead of cheap plastic hubcaps. No sunroof and no leather interior.....for an EX model, please? Dealer said it was vital to keep costs down in order to attract more Prius lookers - ok fine but I say don't use "EX" then....i.e. don't say it's an
EX with cloth seats, no moonroof, fog lights or navigation, dear.
The steering wheel paddle shifters - just kidding, completely useless and hilarious.
More comfortable seats, offer other than basic cloth for seats, will you, please? Navi and blue tooth and fog lights in any EX labeled odel, okay? Where the heck is the moonroof, hon?
I had my 2010 Honda Insight for 5 years.
The gas mileage was around 40 mpg, and about 45 mpg on long trips.
I used synthetic oil in it since I bought it.
I never had any major repairs on it.
It was a great car.
It wasn't the most comfortable on long trips.
I never sat in the back seat so I'm not sure if they were comfortable.
My older friends had trouble getting in and out of the back seat.
But it was a nice car for the price, reliable, nice looking, and had great gas mileage.
