Build quality: Is this really a Honda?

2010 Honda Insight EX 4dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


This a 3rd update on our 2010 Honda Insight that we have had now for about a year in a half. It now is December 2011 and the car has 41K on it. At the 40K service, the guys found a worn out axle (left) and the drive shaft assembly was beginning to come apart (!!!!). Luckily, extended warranty covered it and in the process, they reprogrammed the IMA system and auto-stop feature and now the auto-stop engages even in sub 20 degree weather and in stop and go 5 mph traffic, something it didn't do before. The interior has held up fairly well and the stock tires are a joke; they wore out at 26K miles. But its fun to drive.... I just wish we it was better built

Best Features

Auto-stop feature, IMA information display, USB audio input, stability control.

Worst Features

Better build quality. I know its a hybrid and the components need to be light weight to keep the scales from tipping but at least make it last 10 years without mechanical problems.
