Milage not what I expected
By Bodnar on


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


Having driven about 10000 miles both in city and
from Dallas, Tx to Ocala, Fl and back I can say the
milage is nowhere near the 56MPG rating. Lack of
cruise control really hurts. If you are used to cruise
control you will have to change the way you drive or
the speed will easily creep up to 80 and above. The
best milage I have achieved is 52MPG highway and
46 in town. Once the summer temperatures go up
you can expect those numbers to drop 20% because
of the air conditioner. Electric motor is noisy.

Best Features

The real time MPG display. Great AC.

Worst Features

Better radio. Softer suspension. Cruise control.
