ULTIMATE REVIEW by Dude on 04/16/2003. Trim: 2000 Honda Insight, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Elec. motor provides good torque on demand even though only 3 cylinders. The car is like a luxurious go-kart. Some say it's expensive but you do get a lot of technology and car, especially used ones.
Cons: Hardly any aftermarket items or places to put stuff unless you remove the spare tire.
Overall review: Anyone who drives one of these little cars should get the right-of-way; if not, get out of the way!

Insight on the Insight by disappointed in Northern NY on 06/06/2002. Trim: 2000 Honda Insight, Owned 2 years.
Pros: gas mileage. although, not what the manufacturer advertised, with summer tires & warm weather, we can get 60+ mpg. Acceleration and road speed is a-ok, just not climbing hills.
Cons: Small and lightweight, this car is not tough enough for NE winters. Hilly terrain will wear it down, drain the battery and cause total dependance on the gas part of the motor system. This drags the mpg down dramatically. Honda had warranty recalls which makes the car perform more poorly.
Overall review: This is a great car for commuting, the gas milage is superb (even though true mpg is far below Honda's hype). Learn to drive with patience and this car will be a good companion.

Great car--poor value by BJ on 02/11/2002. Trim: 2000 Honda Insight, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Sleek and fun to drive. Excellent performance in handling. Excellent fuel economy.
Cons: I discovered that it does not hold its value when I attempted to trade it in.
Overall review: I like the car, but wanted to trade it after owning it for one year and two different dealers only wanted to give me half of what I paid for it. A 50% loss in value in one year on a new car is hard to swallow! Honda has lost my future business because of this!
