This is the Honda Isight board so why are you posting last year's Prius articles? Initially neither Toyota's offering Prius or Honda's offering were profitable. Bascially they were a step beyond prototype limited availabiltiy to the public as a "loss-leader". The concept was accepted by the public and both Honda and Toyota have moved on. However, there are strong rumors of a Insight II in late 2005. The 2004 Prius the beta of the Toyta HSD system will die a quiet but heroic death!.

Because one of the posters here asked to see some verification that the Prius is profitable, so he could post it all over the Internet. So far over 1/3 of the posts here deal either with the Prius or Toyota. So why pick on me for trying to respond to someone else's post?

#20 of 181 Insight to HCH

This is in the UK, not a bad deal, now if they did this in the US xcel would be one happy camper - snip - Honda Hunts High-Mileage Insights - Honda has started to look for the driver who has done the highest mileage in its original petrol/electric hybrid model, the Insight coupé. It will present the owner of the best-presented 100,000 miles-plus Insight with one of its current Civic IMA cars as a free replacement. http://www.carkeys.co.uk/news/2004_august/05/3980.asp

But what if the Insight owner doesn't want to replace his/her Insight with a HCH--which returns far lower fuel economy than does the Insight? Does this indicate Insights won't be sold in the UK in the future?

___There is a guy out of Washington state (an Internet friend of mine) that cleans the bottom of his Insight including waxing behind the rims every 3 or so weeks! His Insight is so clean you could eat off the bottom, top, side, and interior In actuality, he takes it to car shows almost weekly so that is why its so meticulously maintained.
