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


Today on Saturday morning for the third time after I bought iit n September 2010 the car not responding to anything probably again because of dead battery. When the car is running it is OK, giving me around 42 MPG after 11K miles on rush hour highway/city. However, this dead car problems are the HUGE one. Usually, it happening if you are not using the car for couple days suggesting some battery drain. First time, the battery was replaced by local Honda service dealer. Second time, despite testing they didn't find any problems. Now, after couple weeks the car again dead leaving me w/o car for the whole weekend. If anybody have suggestions that I can pass to dealers would be appreciated.

Worst Features

Sunroof/moonroof should be available, as well rear camera. Navigation system should be more modern, not the archaic DVD/CD-based, and include traffic info and XM/Sirius option. Hands-free link (HFL) Bluetooth is keep dissappearing after every couple weeks. Considering new state laws about cell phone usage it becoming very annoying.
