Hi everyone! My name is Austin and I'm excited about this forum! I just got a new 2013 Insight about three weeks ago and love it. It's my first non-Toyota or non-Prius I've owned. So far, getting about 49 MPG. I guess my question lies here... my IMA battery gets pooped out very quickly and easily. Even when I climb the hill before my house which is about .5 miles long and the battery states full and my assist guage isnt very high (below half) during the whole climb. Then power suddenly goes away and I loose speed rather quickly and find myself struggling with the accelerator. Then today I went down the hill, fully charged it, then about 2 miles later looked down and seen the battery was at it's lowest setting and force charging again. I kmow the car sat on the dealer lot for about 7 months. It was built in January and I bought it in August with 17 miles on the clock.
