refeuling a distant memory by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/12/2006. Trim: 2002 Honda Insight Hatchback with A/C, Owned 3 years.
Pros: this is a great car pity they have stopped making them its more exclusive than most posh cars and will take you up and down the M4 ( 120 ) forever at 80 and still give 76.5 to the gallon. The handling is firm and on rails i have not yet found the break away point and as i also have a BMW K100rs i feel that comments about handling and speed are well qualified. I will never be able to sell this car as when im not driving it my wife is ( refeuling is a distant memory) and even my son 18 likes the novelty and economy when driving to uni. When my yongest daughter pass's her test she wants to drive it.
Cons: not on sale anymore dont let people complain about the size you know its small and light.
Overall review: great i need to find another i may have to import

Practical and futuristic by Cherri from Phoenix on 06/29/2006. Trim: 2002 Honda Insight Hatchback with A/C, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Easy to park Easy to maneuver in small spaces The gas mileage is amazing Not many people in Phoenix drive this model
Cons: Need more power for pulling out in oncoming traffic
Overall review: Well worth having this as a commuter vehicle. Economic, I only fill up about once every 3 weeks, and with only a 10 gallon tank, it is easy on the pocketbook.

Gas once a month by DOWNwithOPEC on 06/12/2003. Trim: 2002 Honda Insight Hatchback with A/C, Owned 2 years.
Pros: It's fun to watch people's face when you tell them you're getting 65-70mpg!
Cons: Tires are hard to find in stock except at the dealership. However, it's easy enough to get them on the internet. Only a 2-seater, which wasen't a problem when I bought it, but I've married into a wife and kids since then.
Overall review: Pretty good little car. This is the first Honda I've owned and am pretty impressed.

Get a Toyota Prius instead by FocusFan on 12/31/2001. Trim: 2002 Honda Insight Hatchback with A/C, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It's kinda cute. But I just can't get enough of that fuel economy! I'm getting 60 mpg and this guy with a minivan is saying "Wow, it got 25 mpg this time!" Also the front seats aren't too bad either.
Cons: I can't get used to how there is virtually no luggage room, or how there is no rear seat. Also, I'd expect better handling from such a small car. Access and ride could be better. Pretty noisy at times too.
Overall review: If you have no kids, never need to carry luggage, and are willing to spend $20,000 on a two-seat car with so-so handling and acceleration, this is the car for you. However, the Toyota Prius is about the same price, seats five, and still gets like 50 mpg.
