If your commute involves downtown city driving the Insight is a great car for that, very maneuverable and easily parked.thelemite said:Hey all, Im a big time commuter (800 miles a week). I travel alone. Ive used old stick shift cars that get 32-40 mpg in the past and Old diesel Mbs for durability. How durable is the insight? I drove a 1985 300sd for almost 400k miles.
AFAIK there is no maintenance replacement interval. But once you hear _any_ chain "noise" you better not wait!Skimmer said:<snip>
I don't think Honda recommends replacing it until after 100k miles, which is well beyond the usual 60k for most cars.
Good links and symptoms Yves, thanks :!:Yves M. said:<snip>
I personnaly feel that 100K miles is about time for replacement
