#20 of 181 Insight to HCH
Aug 08, 2004 (12:09 pm)
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.

I don't blame the guy for choosing the Insight over the HCH. If he is a commuter that is looking for the best mileage the Insight is still KING of the Road. If you don't haul 3 or more people 20% of the time it is a waste to have a 5 passenger car that only gets 45-50 mpg. You can rent a bigger car on the occasion you need more room.
#27 of 181 Any specs on 2005 Insight?

Insight (5-speed with /AC) is still on my short list. Does anyone have an specifics of the 2005 model. Any changes?
P.S.- Oh to give up power for mileage!

The Insight is on your short list? What happened to the S2000? What happened to the HAH? What happened to that "need for speed"? Finding that 0-60 isn't everything, eh?

I saw the crash test results (4 stars) front and side crashes. Problem is there is NO side airbag option. I wonder why?
