Default New EV, thank you all

Hi all, I used to post in here 10 years ago as tpm1999 when I bought my brand new gen2 Insight. I canít believe itís been 10 years. Not only that but with 140k miles on it I have had 0 issues with it. Fluid changes, 12V battery, brakes, and tires replaced and thatís it! Iím posting to say thank you to everyone who helped me out 10 years ago. I have just purchased a new EV and will be selling my Insight sometime this year.

PS If Honda ever makes a long range EV, I will be back. I love Hondaís quality.

Ah, a one owner Insight with 140K original miles. Look forward to the sale notice.

Good to hear from you, and good to know that IC was of service

May I ask, if you don't mind, which EV did you buy?

And what were the deciding factors that led you to that choice?

I'd own a Karmann Ghia, but prefer to not freeze in the winter!

I wanted an EV that I could take on the occasional road trip, so I purchased the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus. As soon as Honda makes an equivalent EV and charger networks are more robust (like the supercharger). I will come back to Honda.

Thanks! I’ve been sort of maybe perhaps thinking about going EV. My major problem is that I’m stingy. I have trouble spending 10,000 for a vehicle, let alone 30-plus!
