I keep trying to find -anybody- else in Alberta with an Insight, but there seems to be no one. I wish there was someone who when they came up to my car asked what kind of mileage I get on it as opposed to asking me where I plug it in, where the solar panels are, or how often "my Daddy lets his little girl borrow his car"... There needs to be more young girl Insight owners as well as Albertan Insights :)
Still, I've only ever seen my own in person and it would be nice to hook up with some others in the area. Drop me a note if anyone's in the province.

Calgary Insight owner

Hi Michelle,
I'm in Calgary, just got an Insight, a 10k 2000, #42, red. I'm just coming to grips with it, but enjoying it a lot. I would be happy to compare numbers and experiences...
Cheers, Lawrence

Alberta of all places needs more Insight drivers. It's extremely rare to see one on the road.

Hi!

I had to register to reply.

Hi fellow Albertans!!

I just moved to Calgary in the last two months and I have yet to see an Insight on the street.

Currently I am looking to buy an Insight. I really want a blue 2005 but am not totally adverse to looking at other years/colours.

My biggest concern with getting an Insight is maintenance/getting it serviced fixed as needed, followed closely by its winter performance.

So... any insights into the quality of the Honda service here? Is there a dealer in Calgary familiar with the Insight?

Feel free to message me on ICQ or the Google Talk IM (google id: essahlin)

2004 New Blue Insight CVT

Hey there happy birthday Alberta. It might be worth celebrating if gas wasn't a $1.20 a litre. Just crossed over to the dark side, bought my first Japanese car this week and take delivery next week. While in Seattle to catch a Mariner's game I flipped through a stack of old Auto Trader type magazines looking for a Toyota Prius or Honda Insight for sale. I called a dealer on Monday morning, the one I saw was sold but they had new /old 2004 with 141 miles that Honda had been dragging around to auto shows.
I visited Klein Honda and 2 hours later I bought the vehicle. I pick it up next Tuesday night in Everett Washington.

Erik if you can find me a red 2004 or 2005 Honda insight I will happily sell you my Blue one. Our Smart car is a month old and we had intended to buy two but Mercedes Benz dealers aren't worth the hassle... so we will try a Honda Insight and see how it goes. I am looking for information on a cruise control for the Insight and a "pick it up" must check list. Anyone got any references?

Michelle's Insight

Dear Michelle,

I have some digital pictures of your insight on the dealer's lot. If you are interested in them I can e-mail them to you.

Hi friends to the north: I live in Eastern WA, and have visited Alberta several times. This June and July I plan on showing my 2005 Red Insight at 3 weekend car shows in Alberta: Cold Lake, Camrose, and Strathmore. Photos of my car are linked in one of my previous threads. At 87 miles per gallon, I can fill up in Montana and not have to re-fuel for nearly 1000 miles..........Billy
