Bought a used 2010 Honda Insight EX last year when I changed jobs that led to a longer drive. Most of my 70 miles per day is highway and the Insight averages 46 mpg. City stop and go driving actually brings up the mpg.
I'm an average sized woman, 5'5" tall, not fond of the ergonomics of the Insight. Sit too low even with the seat height up all the way and it's uncomfortable, the armrest is too far away. My friend is 5'10" and the passenger seat doesn't go back far enough for her legs.
The car handles well if there is no wind or snow, horrible if it's windy. Blows all over the road. Has decent pick up though. I don't take it on long trips. Would recommend for commuter car only.
Great gas mileage, good looking exterior, purchased used at good price.
Uncomfortable seating, cheap interior, rear view is bad through the divided window, poor handing in windy or snowy conditions.
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.
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?
We are up to about 20k miles in our Insight now and still getting 45-50mpg with no issues. My wife uses it as her daily driver and loves it. We will never sell this car - so much space, practicality, and fuel economy for the price.
Gas mileage, interior materials quality and space, reliability. Room in the back for a rear facing carseat, but as with most compact cars it sacrifices legroom for the front passenger.
I don't really like driving it due to the lack of cruise control but that's what we get for buying the LX. Handling can be scary above 75mph, especially if it's windy. I like to drive fast and it'll still do 45mpg at 80mph.
We've had it since it was new and now just over 30K miles. Fun car to drive. Use it as urban around town commuter car with occasional highway trips and get consistently 39-40 mpg. We are all very tall and fit fine in front seat; adults are somewhat tight in back. No mechanical issues whatsoever, so really appreciate Honda reliability.
Paddle shifters, auto-locking doors, ease of use of stereo/electronics--very intuitive, ease of reading the gauges and the range of information that is given by the gauges.
Lousy cupholders. Cheap plastic scratched near the keyhole. Needs to have keyless entry and stop/start. Stronger front headlight beams. Nav needs an update; Garman is a better buy and cheaper and more intuitive.
