"This car feels good on the road, but eats tires like candy. It also is an oil burner. In addition, it does NOT get the mileage that it is rated at. It gets no better gas mileage than a non Hybrid car. Maintenance is constant and expensive."

VERY VERY SMOOTH AND RELIABLE CAR.

"I have the 2010 insight. I bought it used and have had it for almost 2 years. There's no safe place to jack this car up. I dread changing the tires on the thing in fear that i may put a huge hole in it. Living in VT it gets below zero in the winter. It's not a fan of the cold. Even with a brand new and larger battery that's rated for 40 below didn't make it happy when it was 4 degrees out. They shouldn't have designed this car with a regular car battery anyway! My mpg is slowly going down. I started at getting 52 mpg the 1st summer i first got it and was very happy with my purchase. But by the next summer i was doing all i could to get over 46. At just over 60000 miles the IMA battery light came on then went out on it's own. Getting rid of this thing SOON!"

"I bought this car new in late 2009. It now has 140,000 miles on it. The ONLY things I've had to replace are tires and 1 set of break pads. Great mileage, not bad in the Colorado mountains and averages about 43 MPG. My only gripes are it's not very good in the snow and on a super hot day the air conditioner could use a little help."
