Great vehicle
By L Howe on


2006 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback w/Air Conditioning (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Totally satisfied with what we intended this vehicle to be. We get the EPA 55-56 on the highway staying at or under 70 mph without the A/C on. With a/c and a heavier foot it drops to 48-49 MPG. No problems so far and have had no reported battery drain. Is great in traffic and a joy to park. The hard tires give great mileage but add noise - I'll take the trade off. This is a second car for us but gets most of the use because of the fuel issues and the around town convenience. We also use it for occasional longer excursion drives and plan to leave our other car home for road trips. Highly recommend this great vehicle.

Best Features

Outstanding economy. Environmentally responsible vehicle. Great exterior styling and fun to drive. An exceptionally well engineered vehicle that has been totally reliable so far.

Worst Features

This is a very specialized vehicle designed to push the envelope on getting the maximum mileage. It is not designed to compete with a Lexus 400 in comfort. For what it is supposed to do, I can't think of a thing to change.
