  1. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I have a 2000 Insight with some 222K miles on it, and it runs well. Like many people, I am driving far less than I used to. My latest oil change and maintenance check was six months ago, and the mileage has been just over 3K miles since then. Most of the miles are freeway miles. Should I wait...

    Help I currently own a year 2000 Honda Insight and am looking to replace the battery where would be the best place to buy from? I am currently thinking about bumblebee but I heard that reconditioned cells are crap.

    Hey everyone I am just returning to the States after a long absence and would like to support a potential Insight meetup this summer. I have land and a cabin in Maine and am living around Boston. Please answer the poll below to show your interest (or not).
  4. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hey everyone, I am in need of a grid charger to balance out my battery. I was told a good one runs about $300. Any ideas on which one to buy? Also ever since I bought my 2005 cvt insight I can only get up to 50 city/ highway maintaining a constant speed. I was told I have "the good tires" for...

    Hi! I am new to this forum, don't know much about cars, and need some advice for my 2010 Insight with 164K miles. My car has been extremely reliable but I feel I am pushing my luck. I commute 2 hours a day for work and I am planning a road trip from MA to FL (1,400mi each way) next month. I have...

    Hi there i have a 2010 Honda Insight. I just had a B23 on 180.000 KM and had it done. Now i checked my Maintenance thing on the display and it says 10.000KM for next one, instead of 20.000. Is there a reason for this. It always had his maintenance done by a Honda dealer. At 160.000 a big one and...

    I know that is a bit broad, but was hoping to hear from some second gen owers on things to expect (based on their experience) of owning a second gen insight. Today I bought a 2011 Honda Insight with 113k miles. The car is EXTREMELY clean. Inside and out looks completely new. The car had 2...

    I own a 2012 I2 that is still under manufacturer's warranty. Over and above, I have Honda Care Coverage as well. I am coming close to a maintenance minder and my questions are as follows: 1. Do I have to go to a de(Ste)alership for maintenance to avoid voiding of my warranty? 2. If I do not go...

    I've owned my insight for about 5 months and love it. I average 63mpg country driving, 54 city and everything seems to be great. The car has 120,000 miles on it and am wondering what kind of maintenance plan I should have going forward. I don't have the book in front of me but I believe it...

    Anyone know a good repair shop for insights in Santa Rosa, CA, besides the dealer? Sebastopol would be even better. Thanks
  11. Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    I've found, in general, common items are a little harder to find for the 2010 Insight. Many of the "part finders" do not even have the 2010 Insight listed, even at major sites like Amazon.com and Auto Zone; and some other sites like Amsoil, the listing simply doesn't work. I'm putting this...
  12. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I bought my 2000 Honda Insight at 80,000 and have been trouble-free (thankfully) except for the battery pack going out. I haven't kept up with regular maintenance. At 110,000, the maintenance light is on. I'm in a position to do maintenance work that I may have neglected since 80K. Does this...
