After giving up My 2000 5spd for the wife's lousy as in I really don't like it now 2001 CVT, so she could have her new car, I find it excessivly noisy as in a large amount of possable tire/bearing noise from left front. The car only has 23000 miles on it and My 5 spd was actualy a lot quieter even with 93000. Is more noise normal for a CVT transmission? Its a sort of a wheel bearing noise, which I can run on stands and clearly hear with a stethescope as either from wheel area or half shaft. I even swapped tires from poor MIZR prior to trading him in and noise was same. Maybe I got rid of the wrong car, dahmmm hindsight sucks!!!
I also notice the mileage realy is lower than MIZR was I can only manage about 47-50 on round trip drive to work (approximately 70 miles day) compared to MIZR's 62-68 is this normal for a CVT Insight? If so as soon as Honda releases a new version as projected in 2006 I will be in line.

Actualy no floor mat but had the whole cargo box full of sub woolfers and the rear deck was kinda filled with amps,crossovers,and digital sound processor which I am going to install in this Insight now just redoing mounting board and getting new amps with a little more boost. Who says old men cant enjoy kids toys??
