The ultimate hybrid with out spending a lot of money. by Bigbear from Horseheads, NY 14845 on 06/23/2013. Trim: 2013 Honda Insight EX w/ Nav, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The gas mileage is between 40-48 mpg and the car keeps up with other cars. On trips, I can go about 400-480 miles before getting fuel. The car handles very well on dry and wet pavement; rear camera is great along with navigation. Sporty and the frosted silver metallic gives the appearance of either light gray or light blue or combination.
Cons: You cannot lock the doors on the front passenger side.
Overall review: Good purchase and like the great mileage with a great ride.

Great Car by Joe in Kentucky on 01/07/2014. Trim: 2013 Honda Insight EX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: l love my insight. have owned it a week and am getting 50 mpg. but this car is not for everyone. if you have kids in sports this car is NOT made to haul them to and from football, soccer, or baseball. not enough room for kids and equipment. but if you want a car for travel, grocery, to and from work. this car is great. if used on long trips pad the front seats. they get hard on ones backside after a few hours.
Cons: front finders need to be made better (thicker) after the dealer got the car ready for me to take home i noticed two very small dents where the technician leaned over the front finder on the drivers side checking oil or something. finders should NOT dent from your body weight while checking oil.
Overall review: did i say i love my insight? i traded an F250 Super Duty (Super at emptying my wallet) the money I spent in diesel fuel is paying for my car, insurance, AND gas. Do I miss my truck? What truck!

Solid, sound, efficient, and affordable. by John. K on 02/17/2014. Trim: 2013 Honda Insight Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I like a lot of the safety feutures and the MPG is excellent also. The EPA really underrates this car, I drive normally with traffic and see 46 MPG in the winter and over 50 in the summer. The hatchback makes it very accessible. Honestly, a lot of professional reviews give this car a bad rap, but go drive one yourself.
Cons: The ride is a bit stiff compared to my Prius, but it does handle much better.
Overall review: I bought this car new in August and it's been fantastic. It does well in the snow here in West Virginia (with respect to the decent all season tires) and at around 19,000 dollars, you can get into a hybrid with MPG that approaches my Prius!

A nice hybrid by Honda. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/28/2013. Trim: 2013 Honda Insight EX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I've owned the EX model (2010 model) nearly 3 years, when I downsized from a Honda Accord that I loved. It handles very well and feels very stable, which is partly due to the fact that it is a heavy car (with hybrid battery). I understand that it got a very high crash rating, which is impressive. Honda makes a good hybrid that is excellent on gas (I've gotten around 43mpg combined over 28k mileage). Hatchback gives you plenty of room for cargo for such a small car. I even have towed 2+ bikes on a bike rack that mounts to the back hatch window. Can't beat the versatility. I think the fit and finish and durability of the interior far exceeds the Prius.
Cons: What you would expect from a smaller vehicle, like the smaller cabin. Still, have gone on long trips with wife and two kids without too many complaints (and few gas stops). I think Honda built a nice underrated car here.
Overall review: Nice car.
