I am new to this group and a new owner of a 2000 Insight. I want to congratulate all of the paticipants who over the last three years have helped each other work through the glitches and devise improvements in the Insight's performance. I spent a great deal of time reading old posts before I purchased this car and feel confident that there is a group of Insight enthusiasts out there willing to help if problems arise. Hats off to you owners who have embraced the hybrid technology from the beginning, for you are the true trailblazers. I and other owners of 'recycled' Insights (Hybrid Novices) will be looking to you for advice as we push the envelope and see how this technology ages with our vehicles.
