  1. Radiator/coolant temp fears

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Hey guys! The other day, I was cruising on the highway after a spirited drive through some twisties near me, probably going about 80ish mph with the AC on. Suddenly, I saw the coolant temp gauge shoot up by two bars at once. I immediately keyed the car off, and coasted to the side of the road to...

  7. Driver window won't go down

    Troubleshooting and Problems
    Hi all! I have a 2011 Honda Insight. Every winter when it starts to get cold outside, my driver window (ONLY the driver side) doesn't like to go down.

  12. Spare Tire

    Honda Insight Forum 3rd-Gen Discussion
    Looking for a lead on a proper spare tire and jack for long trips. I'm a little leery going cross-country without a spare. I can't seem to find an "official" spare set-up for the 2019 Insight. Would a spare from a 2018 Civic EX fit an Insight?
  13. Digital Speedometer

    Honda Insight Forum 3rd-Gen Discussion
    I wish the Insight had a digital speedometer option... is there a way to display a digital speedometer in MPH? I looked up the 2018 Accord because it seems similar and there's a way on that to display one but only in KPH (the opposite unit of the "real" analog speedometer).
