2010 Honda Insight: What's That Smell?

July 23, 2009



No, I'm not obsessed with all things olfactory.

But while trying to make peace with the Honda Insight, I drove it home with the Econ Button on. You earn more leaves that way, although as the manual states "Engine performance will be different."and "The climate control system will have greater temperature fluctuations."

I noticed the cabin took on a different fragrance. What could it be, I wondered. Then I realized it was ... fresh air. The A/C system took a break and let the outside world in.

Of course, if we all drove Insights, the air might be even fresher.
