2000 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback


My 2000 Honda Insight is a joy to
drive. It is surprisingly fast,
considering its main draw is fuel
economy & low emissions. The
aerodynamic fairing is close to the
ground, and consequently I had an
adverse encounter with curbing--the
plastic & rubber spoilers are fairly
fragile but easily repaired. I have had
absolutely no other problems. When
driving in daylight, turning on the
headlights dims the instrument panel
too much, even in cloudy weather & no
cruise control is available. Otherwise,
it's a perfect little car & a great
piece of engineering design.

Best Features

Fun to drive, fast & very comfortable. I get 60 mpg overall & up to 72 on long freeway trips. Other people see it & love it -- lots of waves & high 5's. Plenty of room for 2 people & big suitcase. Regnerative braking is a neat feature.

Worst Features

Needs cruise control & a dimmer override on the digital instrument panel so you can see it better when driving with lights on in daylight.
