2002 Honda Insight BaseReview
Taking One For The Planet — This vehicle is as basic as it gets. It reminds me of riding in an old Ford Pinto.(Too far back for a lot of you, huh?) It gets between 48 to 58 miles to the gallon depending upon whether I am driving or my wife is. I just had the battery pack replaced @ 48,000. miles to the tune of @ $5,000.00. For the Pros: The brake pads still look brand new. It helps minimize middle eastern oil imports. Easy to wash. For the Cons: Oil change hindered by under panel. Tires are Expensive. It eats them @ every 25,000 miles. The seats are god-awful uncomfortable. Lots of road noise. Plus above battery maintenance.

Best Bang For Your Buck
I bought this car in 2010 after reasearching all other alternatives. Even now, given the fuel economy, price, exterior and interior looks of the vehicle it still blows everything else out of the wat... Read More
I have loved this car and spend so little money on gas! With the seats down we can fit 2 bicycles and 2 suitcases! It is surprisingly roomy. Lots of pick up and so nice to drive a environmentally fr... Read More
Want To "save" Money!
What a great little car? I really like this car. Great on gas; while not sacrificing ride and handling. The car is very quiet and fun to drive. Easy getting in and out of tight spaces. Great he... Read More
What A Great Car This Is. If You Don't Have To Haul The Whole Family, You Can't Beat This Car!
Better MPG than a Prius, its not a Prius (actually came before them), and it's not like anything else on the road. This car is a blast to drive, and in normal driving, isn't much different than your... Read More
