Great driving experience by spacecar driver on 05/14/2004. Trim: 2001 Honda Insight with A/C, Owned 1 year.
Pros: gas mileage is great; easy to drive and park; rear window windshield wiper, controls easy to use, electronic dash
Cons: cup holders too small for my tea mug; ABS brakes only (first vehicle I've ever had with them)
Overall review: Handles great in most weather. Does okay in snow if the roads are somewhat clear, although ABS brakes and ice react differently from disc brakes and ice, so I have to get used to that. On really mountainous roads, pickup is sluggish; hilly areas are fine, though. People ask me lots of questions, and lots of heads turn. Some people have thanked me for buying a hybrid--perhaps assuaging their SUV guilt (most who have thanked me were driving SUVs). Quite a few head turners were driving Mercedes 500-class vehicles, and one drove a Lamborghini. I'm really happy with my Insight. My husband calls it

Convinces Even Hard-Core Skeptics, After A Ride by Rick from Milwaukee, WI on 12/12/2001. Trim: 2001 Honda Insight with A/C, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Gas mileage, style.
Cons: A little small on the highway (semis look REALLY big when you're right next to them!).
Overall review: Fantastic! I love taking skeptics for rides and having them say "Hey, the car seems pretty cool." They are surprised by the pep, especially in sport-mode. My wife and I took it on a driving trip and had a great time. We had to pack a bit light (small storage), but just plain fun to take out on the road.

Honda Insight: I really do get 63MPG! by A CarPoint Consumer on 10/10/2001. Trim: 2001 Honda Insight with A/C, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Its fun. Its economical. Its appropriate to try to save energy.
Cons: Its only 2 passengers. You really have to concentrate to get maximum mileage. I am concerned about driving this winter in snow...small tires and low ground clearance.
Overall review: The insight has been everything I thought it would be when I purchased it. Its an engineering marvel,
