Amazing fuel economy, quick steering, lots of standard equipment.
Batteries drain fast under continual electric motor assist, highly susceptible to crosswinds, not much point-and-shoot power on tap, small payload capacity.
The pious Insight is still the fuel economy champ, but Toyota's Prius offers more practicality and nearly equivalent mileage ratings.
The CD-equipped audio system with four speakers is now standard equipment, and the fuel consumption gauge's illumination color changes from green to red. All Honda cars gain a new seatbelt reminder system this year.

Read what other owners think about the Used 2004 Honda Insight.
Mine is a 2000 Insight purchased in
March, 2000. It now has 116,000 miles
on the odometer and has been absolutely
trouble free. I mean, not even as much
as a single lightbulb has ever needed
In brief, it is the very best car I have
ever owned by a VERY wide margin, and
I've owned a few, including a big
Mercedes, two BMWs, two Volvos, an Alfa
Romeo, and other nice cars. It's a
spectacular long-distance cruiser -- I
once went over 800 miles actually
nonstop, and only stopped then because I
had to pee -- I still had gasoline left
in the 10.6 gal tank. It's quiet and
comfy and is the only car I've ever
owned where I don't need the seat all
the way back. I absolutely LOVE it!

2004 Insight review.
2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)
For economy, the only car I feel could beat the Insight would be an electric car recharged with solar panels. Its aerodynamics makes it almost uneffected by wind for safety as well as energy efficiency. Only drawback is that it carries onlt 2 people, but the space is very ample and comfortable for those 2 people. I know I can race any car on the road to the end of our tanks, and win. The place where it wins the nicest is at the pump at every fillup.
The fuel economy is incredible! Even
though the car is rated at only 87hp,
it has plenty of power.
Unfortunately, it is not equipped with
cruise control, to which I have become
accustomed. Also, rear visibility has
been sacrificed in the interest of
This is a vehicle worthy of your
disposable dollars. I have an
automatic and the only disappointing
item about this vehicle is that the
fuel estimates should be revised with
each number going down by 10
(highway/City). Even then it is a
great buy. I purchased based on the
epa estimates. They were close but not
quite right. I would but it again and
again. I am funding my 401k catch up
contribution with the gas savings that
I am receiving. I cant imagine why
anyone would pay such ridiculous
prices for gas anymore. I guess it was
because we didnt have a choice. Now we

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you
that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make
higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand,
can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a
new car every three years or so.
