Gotta Love It...

2000 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback


Have owned car less than 6 months & it has
already saved me over $300 in fuel expenses. As
gas prices continue to soar, the savings margin
also grows.

On daily commute of over 56 miles one way I have
been averaging between 80 & 85 mpg & have
twice attained 91 mpg (!). My record for a shorter
17 mile trip is 100 mpg. This is a truly awesome
vehicle. Of course, achieving these kind of figures
requires adopting new, more fuel efficient driving
habits. But even when in a hurry, one can easily
get 50-60 mpg without even thinking.

So, depending on driving conditions and locale you
can get 600-900 miles of driving from a single
tank. How do you like that, OPEC ?!!!

Best Features

Regenerative breaking. Firm, comfortable seats. Sporty handling and feel. Instantaneous Fuel Consumption Display. Ability for one person (over 6' ) to sleep in the cargo area on long trips. The fact that it's an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle.

Worst Features

Cruise Control. Center arm-rest. More in-depth instructions for reinstalling rear wheel covers after changing tires (screws can come loose if not properly tightened...). Honda: Keep making more Hybrids & educating the masses about the manifold joys & benefits of owning & driving them.
