Although I don't personally own a Gen 2 Insight, my dad works at a Honda dealership, and the Gen 2 Insight was one of the options when my mom was looking for a new car (she ended up going with a Prius). The 2012 and 2013 years were notorious for oil consumption. If you do a quick check on carcomplaints.com you can see the other issues noted for the Gen 2 Insight. They're pretty reliable cars, with the exception of the oil burning issues of the 2012 and 2013. A 2010, 2011, or 2014 would be a good option. Hybrid battery pack management was greatly improved over the 1st generation.
If you're looking at buying a Gen 2 Insight, take a look at the Prius as well. The Prius has more storage space and gets better fuel economy in the city. Highway fuel economy is comparable.
