first-time stick driving on Insight

I just bought an '01 5-speed Insight on e-Bay, and I have to fly down to Anaheim this week to pick it up. Problem is, I've never driven stick before. Is the Insight an easy car to learn on? It seems like the Auto-Stop function would make stalling I right? Are there any other quirks and foibles I should know about manual Insights?

Much appreciated,

The Insight is my first stick-shift car. Before I bought it, one of my dearest friends let me ruin his Cavalier learning to drive a stick. When I picked up the Insight (my husband drove it home :) ) I learned pretty quickly that I like my own clutch and everything better than the Cavalier's!

:wink: But that's probably because he's 6'3" and I'm five even!
