Who here drives a 5-Speed Insight? How hard is it to drive a 5-Speed? I think it would be pretty hard. What do most of you Insight owners prefer to drive, CVT or 5-Speed? I am going to buy a 2005 Navy Blue Peral Insight around when I graduate, and would really like to get good mpg, but I cannot drive a 5-Speed, only a CVT. I would really like to learn how to drive a 5-Speed so I can get up in the 90's and 100's for mpg. If I were to get a CVT what kind of milage do you think I would get? To me driving a 5-Speed would be too hard, it sounds complicated. I mean I don't really like the fact that if I get a 5-Speed I would have to drive one handed all the damn time. How long did it take some of you to learn how to drive a 5-Speed, and how long have you been driving one? Another thing I do not like about a manual or 5-Speed is that when I go to break I will have to put the clutch in every time, or atleast I think you do. What would you Insight owners that drive a 5-Speed do if someone slams on his brakes in front of you? I would think that you would crash, but if you were driving a CVT you could just slam on the brakes. Also what is it like driving a manual in bumper to bumper traffic? I would tend to think you would rear end someone. Can someone please explain to me how you would drive a manual of 5-Speed? I have heard that you can slow down faster in a manual or 5-Speed, is this true? I think that you would slow down faster in a CVT. How do you even know when to shift in a manual? Also what is lean burn mode?
