I love my Insight - most fun yet
By P.A.Ewing on


2002 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


I am thoroughly enjoying my new Insight. I have had many people talk to me
at stop lights, etc. The technology seems to fascinate them. I have only
three criticisms: Upholstery snags easily - it's good looking, but I expect to
drive a car 10 years. I think I may have to replace the upholstery or seats
before my 10 years is up. Gas mileage is about 41-42 mpg - it may be due
to the extreme heat in Texas & the constant need for air conditioning. I'll
see how we do this winter. As I remember, last winter I was getting 48-49
mpg. Speakers could be a better quality.

Best Features

This car is designed to cut through the air, the fender skirts suggest that. After 3 months of shopping I saw no real improvement over my '86 Volvo. Then I saw an Insight & I was hooked. The inside dimension is surprising. I do not feel cramped at all. Nice sporty look both inside & out.

Worst Features

(1) Change the ulpostery. The seats look very similar to a Porsch I once had - trimmed in leather. (2) upgrade the speaker system
