2000 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback


Of the ten or so vehicles I have owned,
this is by far the best vehicle I have
ever owned. Performance is great (keep
in mind that it weighs =1800 lbs), it's
a blast to drive, phenomenal mileage (I
averaged 87 mpg on a 250 mile trip
once), etc. I've spent roughly $1100 in
gas over 50k miles the 2 years I've had
the Insight. I never realized how much
attention this car would receive from
all walks and places of life. I cannot
say enough positive things about this
car. I'll keep it until I die.

Best Features

The mileage of course, but also the interior design of the vehicle. Seats are great for road trips and are very supportive. Very high-end materials are built into this car (the body is aluminum, for instance). And, no, you don't have to plug it in. ;-)

Worst Features

I am still floored this vehicle does not have cruise control. The stereo system is worse than your flip-digital 1970s Panasonic clock radio. Also, getting this car serviced correctly has been a challenge. My advice would be to make best friends with your service writer.
