2005 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


84 yrs old, and cars all my life, including Ferrari, and road racing, This is finest engineered ever, with world's most advanced engine. Also, fun to drive. You guys lie a lot-the 5 speed will give 65 M/G all day. 70 M/G is common. I have a CVT and can get 60 plus/gal on flat roads to Cal. from Seattle. Next year when oil goes to 80/barrel, I will have to lock it up!

Best Features

Mileage, of course, first in world. fit and finish excellent. roomy, no wind noise at 70. Superb engineering. Instrumentation, with gas how goes it. 105000 miles to first seervic and 7500 mile oil changes, 2.6 qts.

Worst Features

Add sheet metal clip inside gas cap cover to hold the cap, my 1991 Accord has this. Glove box light. Passenger mirror. Change rear wheel cutout to semicircular, so it looks like a car with covers removed. Lower height. We do not need provision for a 6 foot 7 inch driver, as it has now
