so i'm thinking of getting a new(used) car, and i've been really looking to the insight as my new purchase. i'm just curious on if its as great of a car as it seems. so if you could comment about any problems or why i shouldn't get this car, do so. thanks in advance

I bought mine on April, 2002 and I've had no problems so far. I've only put about 6050 miles on it and averaging 70.2 mpg...yes beating the book! A couple months ago, I've been playing with the idea of trading it in for a Subaru WRX (I'm a rally fan), but my brother talked me out of it (He's getting a WRX so I'll get to drive his here and there!). Recently with fuel prices hitting record highs, it feels even better these days to be driving a hybrid! I top the tanks once a month and get around 680-710 miles per tank. Power/acceleration is plenty, just don't take on a WRX! I bought mine out the door for $19,400. It's a great car for commuting to work! Actually, it's just a great little car!

Good luck to you!
Tony

P.S. if you don't choose the Insight, go for the WRX!!!

I just bought mine yesterday from A Honda dealership in Nanuet, NY. I found a 2000 Manual silver Insight with 27K miles. The drive of 50miles back from the dealer, I averaged 57MPG just coming down the Thruway and Route 287 (very hilly), so Im loving it. I did about 65MPH on the highway, so slower would have made the MPG higher. I have a grin still on my face and can't wait to get out and drive it some more! I think I used about a gallon so far and the tank is still mostly full!

If you're not into speed, or being in a hurry to get to your desitnation, pick up an Insight before the gas prices hit 2.50!
