Test drove a 2004 Insight CTV. . .

A couple days ago I test drove the 2004 Insight CTV.
I loved everything about the car - except - I was expecting something resembling at least 'sprightly' acceleration.

Could it have anything to do with sitting at the dealership for a long time ?
Was I driving it incorrectly ? Is it necessary to run the gears in the auto ?
Do I need to adjust my expectations ?

I have been reading things like 'blast to drive', and 'surprisingly quick', etc., but my experience fell a little short of those kind of superlatives.

Any thoughts ?

Does anyone use the Sport mode? I've made a habit of accelerating in that mode and changing back to regular at about 30mph.

I wonder if the acceleration ratings are tested in that mode as I see a significant improvement. Definately feels better than 11 sec 0-60.
