An Uncomfortable Car that is Amazingly Reliable

I'm very satisfied with my 2010 Honda Insight, eight years in. I have found it to be sturdy, reliable, responsive, easy-to-use, and very low maintenance. It fires up like a champ and just keeps going; vehicle is serviced regularly. I've had no problem with structural elements, critical mechanicals, A/C, lights, or electricals - besides recalls on both the front driver-side airbag and front passenger-side airbag, and a rubber strip that runs along the roof above the doors. The motor feels responsive in all but the most aggressive accelerations, and has always had adequate power on the highway. Steering feels tight and hugs curves; I've made many tight turnarounds on narrow roads because of its acute turning radius. I feel like my visibility out of the windows and mirrors is solid with lines of sight all-around-the-car for a tall guy like me, though my shorter friends have less flattering opinions of their visibility from the driver's seat. I've never had a shortage of cargo space, especially with the nearly-flat-folding back seats; I've not had comfortable experiences sleeping in the rear as the seats don't fold flat completely, but it can get the job done. Passengers have described the interior aesthetics of the driver's gauges and the console as "like a spaceship." The many, many plastic pieces, latches, and levers throughout the cabin have all held up well over the years; nothing is loose or feels flimsy. The fabric seats have held up. I find the driver's seat hits the lower back in a way that makes my back tighten up on road trips, making me (and my most frequent passengers) second-guess taking my car on long-haul drives; pillows recommended. Head clearance is low in the back seats. I'm happy with this car; I've found it drives well for commutes and errands, and am delighted by how few mechanical problems I've had with it, and I like the clarity of the gauges and user interfaces. It's a well-built car. But, xxxx those seats!

Great economy and reliability

This has been a very good car for us. Very reliable and great economy. We were surprised how useful the car is. We take it when we need to haul large amounts because even thought the car is small, we can carry an enormous amount in the back with the rear seats down.

Great car that saved my life

I own Honda Insight 2010 since November of 2016. I bought it used with 83,000 miles on it. Since I bought it reached 130,000 miles and I didn't have any mechanical issues with that car. I did regular oil changes ( once every 6,000 miles ) and changed my tires recently and that's all. Mostly I drive on the freeway and this car gets around 45MPG while in the city it is around 39MPG. I recently was involved in the accident that happened on the freeway where another car hit me and my car hit the concrete barrier on the freeway. The car is totaled, however, I exit the car with no scratches at all. Thank you for this Honda car. I am a ?student and great MPG and reliability are important for me.

Super efficient, doesn't like hills or cold

In temperatures above 50 degrees fahrenheit and on non-mountainous roads, this car gets phenomenal gas mileage, far above the EPA estimates. I hit 55mpg regularly, even with roof racks. It's quiet, advanced enough to tell me if it has a problem, fun to drive, and it handles well and has excellent safety features. It's also spacious enough for me to sleep in and live out of for a week or two at a time, even with all of my gear. I also trust it to not break down on some dirt road a hundred miles from civilization... that being said, this is NOT an offroading capable vehicle. If it's very cold outside, your mpg average will drop substantially because the battery won't work well. If you're traversing hills, you will be trundling along in the slow lane with the trucks, because once the battery discharges (and it will on long hills), you're being powered by nothing but a teeny little 88hp engine. Big hills or cold weather takes that 55mpg down to about 35mpg. Worth it? Totally, unless you live in Colorado or somewhere extremely hilly and cold. Honda reliability + fantastic gas mileage and lots of cargo space make the Insight a stellar vehicle.
