Best Car for Today
By AChoiredTaste on


2005 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback w/Air Conditioning (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


Absolutely the best value for today: Fun to drive, outstanding mileage: averaging 60 -70 mpg mostly freeway driving. In town not as good. Power is great as long as you rev it; no low end torque. Great Climate Control. Lots of people stop you to ask you about it; great for conversation. Able to use carpool lane and also get $2000 back from IRS. The savings in gasoline between this and my other car makes the payment (for 60months) on this car; so it's essentially free! Now want to get more options to trick it out! You can afford this and your "week-end only" gas hog with the fuel savings!

Best Features

Mileage, quiet, range is so long: over 600 miles on a tank with plenty of reserve!!

Worst Features

Options, options, options !! Optional wide farings to accommodate wider rear tires; bigger fuel tank (10.6gals now), say 13.5 gals from Acura Integra. Insulation package (which I'm having done independently for about $650, complete). Bigger IMA unit, say 20-30 HP. Darker rear glass, solar panels.
