2003 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


The handling up and through mountain
passes was amazing. I passed many other
cars going up the passes. The batteries
charged well going down the other side.
I had the opportunity in Montana to
test for top speed on a long level
road. I was amazed at the result: 105
mph. The car was overload with travel
necessities, but performed and handled

Best Features

The digital dash. Also other luxury features I would expect to find only in a Mercury Marquis.

Worst Features

The gear ratio for reverse is WAY too high. It is hard to back up a small incline to get in my carport without frequent stalling and/or slipping the clutch.
