We got a lemon and Honda won't help
By Hammond on

Vehicle

2010 Honda Insight EX 4dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

Well, it's been about 8 months since we purchased the car and sadly, this Honda let us down majorly. At 12K, the check engine light blared and the screen gave us a warning sign that something was wrong with the hybrid system. Took it in and it turned out that the cooling system was shot. After 4 weeks in the shop, we took it and found they didn't fix it right since the car was vibrating when the battery kicked in. Not only that but our average mileage has dropped from 45 MPG to about 37 MPG. So I think we got a lemon but Honda isn't treating us right. We paid a premium for the Hybrid and we expect it. Should have coughed the extra $1500 for the Prius.

Favorite Features

Besides the gadgets inside, the car is basically useless now that it gets no better mileage than a regular fit or civic

Suggested Improvements

Better reliability and service. I understand that lemons come now and again but Honda isn't treating us right. Its our 3rd Honda and a huge disappointment
