Heck, I personally think that getting 50mpg while hauling *** is pretty good, no other car can match that. I really don't try to do many things to enhance the Insight's mileage, I drive it like a normal car and still easily get over 50mpg, which is why I like the Insight so much. But you're right about the handling comments in Car and Driver, its an enthusiast magazine for sports car buffs mainly, and in comparison to say a S2000 or something like that, the Insight's handling is lacking. But for what it is, the Insight is a well balanced car on the road. Some of the editors of the magazine Car and Driver acknowledge that fact, Patrick Bedard, one of their editors, and Brock Yates, curmudgeon extraordinaire, both seem to be fans of the Insight from what I've read.Tim Maddux said:what bugs me however is when they smugly report "only" getting 50 mpg after hauling *** in their Insight around a test track and use that to reject the notion of saving gas money with the Insight. In fact, real-world reports (such as this site's MPG database) show that the EPA estimates for mileage are fair and can be exceeded by very large margins.
