On the topic of scaring horses, one thing you have to get used to with an Insight is how quiet it is. I don't mean that it seals out outside sound well. I mean that it doesn't generate much sound.

It is quite common that I accidentally sneak up on pedestrians wandering around in the road, apparently listening for traffic and not hearing any, so when they finally hear the tires crunch gravel within 10' of them, they turn and jump and then look very apologetic and they skooch off the road.

The engine turns itself off under conditions you'll become familiar with, but the thing is, even when it is running, it is so quiet, you'll need to check for the blinking green indicator light to know for sure whether the engine is running.
