2001 Monte Carlos Blue MT with 285,000 and 4th battery (one under warranty, thank you Eli!)
My 2001 Insight with 200k miles and manual trans has developed a problem that feels like it's starving out - it chugs and surges when keeping even steady state throttle pressure. It accelerates fine and strong, but steady speeds it always stutters. This happens mostly at surface street speeds, and nearly any normal RPM, but will surge even at highway. Obviously more pronounced with the AC on. Seems to have started around 175k miles. I've had the injectors cleaned, replaced the plugs around 150k miles, replaced the three ignition coil$ on the advice of my (non-dealer) mechanic. BTW, had the battery and charging circuit recall done back in 2006(?). My charging levels are still normal for what I've experienced throughout the 10 years I've owned it. Mileage is down to 46 to 51 mixed city/hwy.
