Great car for the money
By Brian Tennis on


2004 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback w/Air Conditioning (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


My wife and I traded in a full size
Nissan king cab truck and have saved
thousands of dollars in fuel alone.
This car is very fun to drive, as long
as your not trying to blow away people
at stop lights. You have to be very
smart when driving this car, as it is
battery assisted and you will need to
rely on the battery for true fuel
savings. Remember, the battery acts
like an overdrive, it helps you get up
to speed and helps you out with the
fuel that you would normally use to get
up to cruising speed. This is one of
the best cars we have ever owned, if
not the best. Just keep in mind, the
way you drive this car will directly
impact your fuel savings, and winter
driving can be quite hairy.

Best Features

Looks, fuel economy, gawkers.

Worst Features

The brakes can be scary in the winter time.
