hey everyone! I am now an offical Insight owner- after 6 long months of waiting- and absolutly LOVE it! So far my only complaint is that the cup holders cant hold a Gaterade bottle (lol I'm a bit of a sport addict so its my fav drink).

I am kind of wondering though about the engin maybe..cutting out for a split second. When I'm on the highway the car sometimes jolts and the little fuel comsumption gauge drops- but not to 0 - and then picks back up. Almost like it just decided that it didnt want to run the engin.
Has anyone else had this problem???

I put the primum fuel in every time -except once cuz the gas was like $1.10 can. - which I know I dont have to but I figured being my first new car I'd be nice to it =)

Hiccup Too

I took delivery of my 06 in late July. It's the MT with A/C. Down here in extreme South Louisiana it's a must. I have noticed the same exact thing with mine. It usually only happens once when I'm on my way to work about 5 - 10 miles from home. There seems to be no rhyme or reason so I never know when it's going to do it. The A/C is on too. I noticed the same things: under slight speed increase, when it does it the mpg drops and it's only for a split second but the motor just goes right on. Other than this little thing I love this car. It's like driving a sports car after being in F150 4X4 for years. With A/C on Econ I'm averaging 63 mpg.
