"Love my insight"

Great mileage
Can't drive an infant because there's no backseat
This is a great two person car. It can park in the smallest of parallel parking spots, yet the hatchback style still allows pretty good storage space. Lifetime mileage is 63 mpg for 110,000 miles and it's still going strong. No other car model comes close to this level of fuel efficiency. With manual transmission, you get plenty of power when you need it even though it's only a three cylinder car. Minimal maintenance over the 17 years that I've had it. I love this car. Only downside - it is a two seater and it's illegal in CO to put an infant in the front seat of a car.Read less

"Love it"

Insane gas mileage, fun to drive
Lacks power
Let's get this straight, the insight is gutless, but I don't care. Even without the ima working I drive the car daily on just the gas engine and last tank I got 54.6mpg total. Mostly in town in winter. It's perfect for what I need it for and saves me a ton over my big truck. Handling is exceptional, like surprisingly well. Could use a little more low end power but overall the car is extremely well engineered and an impressive machine.

"great little car! replaced battery at 100K miles"

fun to drive
my 2002 insight has been very reliable and has caused no major problems since the initial battery recall. replaced IMA battery at approx 100K miles a couple of years ago, and currently needs new a/c compressor at 113K miles. but seeing how another owner has 200K miles on his/hers, 'figure it's worth the fix! not the cushiest of rides, but has been fun to drive and zippy -- not bad for a 15 year old and counting...

"Best commuter car period."

Mpg, reliable, and simple.
Limited space, hard to find parts, and boring.
I bought this as a commuter car and it has not failed to live up to that purpose. After 270k miles the engine is still going strong and averaging above 50mpg. It is hard to find parts at local auto discount stores but if you can find one at a good price and need a car just for commuting, it does get any better than this. It's not a car you drive for fun, vacation, etc... It's excellent at what it was made for....Commuting to and from work...

"Great daily driver"

fun to drive,5speed,capable of burn-outs,alum body
rattles, firm ride, cat conv expensive,
We own two '01 Insight's, both with 5 speed manual gearbox. We use these as daily drivers and they are fun to drive. Replaced batteries with upgraded bumblebee cells and have had zero problems. Added IMA boost and current hack to one car. Surprisingly quick off the line with lots of electric torque. No traction or stability control so very capable of doing burn-outs with a strong battery in manual gearbox cars. We get mid 60's in the summer and low 50's mpg in the winter. When it's real cold mpg's will drop into the upper 40's. In winter we run 13" Honda VX rims mounted with 155/80-r13 snow tires. Skinny tires with tall sidewalls give outstanding performance in the snow and help prevent wheel damage from pot holes. Aluminum body also doesn't rust making it ideal for winter salt. Some people laugh, but we've had numerous notes left on windshield from people wanting to buy. Firm ride and some rattles, but otherwise a great car. Limited number of production means most repair shops know little about this car's unique engineering features. Probably best owned by those who are capable of doing their own work. Excellent forum and enthusiast support.Read less
