Perfect Commuter Car
By HP Laborde on


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


Needed a daily driver: I drive approximately 40,000 year in Calif and need reliable, comfortable, peppy, economical transportation. The climate control is wonderful. If you don't try to get 65-70mpg the car hauls you know what! I've already got almost 2,000 miles on it in 1 week of ownership with avg of 62 mpg even driving over 95 mph on some spurts!

Best Features

Performance, mileage, good looks, quiet, handling, climate control. Good visibility. Very reliable.

Worst Features

Needs center console. Maybe a bigger fuel tank for even more range. An "R" version with mainly performance in mind but which would still get excellent mileage using the Acura Type R drivetrain (which I also own).
