Is it worth it?

Hello to all. Newbie here. I'm considering purchasing a used Honda Insight. But I have a few questions and after reading a few posts here, I have some new concerns as well (battery life, reliability, etc...)

Question #1. I drive 78 miles to work (one way) for a grand whopping total of 156 miles each day. The roads I travel are 65MPH and 75MPH. Is this little Insight's engine capable of sustaining this speed for and hour and a half? I don't want to be running the engine at it's MAX.

Question #2. I am currently looking at a 2001 Insight. I've seen a few posts regarding recalls. Are the 2001's full of 'bugs'? (i.e. new technology...guinnea pigs of hybrid cars...etc..)

Thanks in advance,
Dayved

You won't go wrong with the Insight. I bought a 2001 used jst before Christmas last year. I have already put 20,000 miles on it (I drive an average of 650 miles a week) with no major problems (I put brake pads on, but it was time for them anyway). Do a search on the site and you should find a thread on buying a used Insight and what to look for.
