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


After driving the Insight over 22,000 miles, I feel that Honda is the best car company on the planet. They are about the only car company to put their money where their mouth is. They've "walked their talk", in that they've created a major evolution in the automotive industry, taking 100 year-old combustion technology and brought it into the 21st century.

That 3 cylinder engine sounds like a V12 purring under the hood. I'll be darned if I can figure out how Honda did it. Only the best engineering can make a 3 cylinder engine purr like that.

I tell you that the Insight IS fun to drive, with it's strong torque at the low end and electric steering.

Hope you decide to walk your talk.
