Hello, I've wanted an Insight for a couple of years now, I'm currently driving a 00' Sunfire. I now want to get a new car, well new used, and I'm looking at an Insight. I do drive to college in a different town, and before the Sunfire I owned a Prelude. My family is what you can call a, "Honda Family", We've had about 12 in the past 20 years. I've only been in an Insight, as my dad had to test drive it for me because I don't know how to drive a standard. Are the CVT's the kind of automatics that steal power from the engine? I guess I mean to ask if the CVT is slightly slower than the stick? I'm not sure how to use the site but are there any things you might want to tell a person before buying one? Gas to use, tire pressure, etc...? Thanks for you help!
