Just a quick anicdote/warning Isights do not make good rally cars. I was travelling down a back road paved asphalt at about 50 when the road suddenly switched to gravel. You thought the backend tracked wierd on grooved highways on gravel you are lucky to keep it strait over 20. But yes i was able to stop safely and keep control of the car just was a little annoted about the gravel dust on my freshly waxed baby.

I have not noticed any problems on gravel roads, but of course around here this time of year they are all frozen, so that might be the difference. I personally wouldn't drive ANY car that I cared about on gravel anyway, so it's sort of a moot point. Nice to know though...

The suspension pounding from the uneven road surfaces can eventually cause metal fatigue, cracking the uni-body metal that supports the springs. I've seen this happen on a neighbor's full-size station wagon, and also on an old Corolla of mine, after many miles on these back country roads.

Actually an Insight would make a fantastic rally car. But not so much if it's your dailydriver nice car.
