Cool! For those who want an Insight 2, don't forget to mention that you really want Honda to build the IMAS as well (please!)

Hi All,

The chat was interesting. A lot of the replies were "canned" promotional verbage. Overall it was a nice effort on the part of Honda Corp.

The transcript of the chat will be on http://chat.honda.com in the future.

I'm pretty psyched too, one of my questions was answered. Although it had nothing to do with our Insight. That's cool anyway.

Hi Sparky5501:

___Thanks for the info and the link … April 21st for the transcript is a long time

___What question of yours was answered? Did you see or read anything on the new Accord Hybrid or possibly an MDX Hybrid? How about the Accord Hybrid being a PZEV or anything on actual city/hwy estimates? Did you see anything that specifically stated the Insight’s demise or are they going to continue production with another batch in early 05? If not, did they say they have another high mileage replacement coming to replace our little beauties?

___Sorry for all the questions but I am dying to know what my next automobile might be

___Thanks again …

Oh, my question was "What kind of trees are planted...?"

They mostly commented on the Hydrogen fueled vehicles used in Cali. Nothing about the Insight, although I did log-in late so i might have missed if there were questions asked about our Insight. the replies were very very corporate professional. I think they had a PR person review the replies. It took a while for the reply to display. Of course a lot of the questions I asked didn't get posted either. It was heavily moderated. One good note was that they said some of the questions not answered in the chat might get answered when they post the transcript. That will be nice. It will give them time to research the topic and provide the correct corporate responce. :P

Wow, what a load of crap. I just read the transcript, and it's even more edited and moderated than the chat session. Most of the questions and answers I remember from the chat aren't even in the transcript. At least they could have noted in the link; Please read the selected exerpts from our chat session.

It even looks like they rearranged some of the content to make a PSA out of it. I'm diappointed at Honda for not preserving the true transcript.
