excellent value..sufficient power for CA freeways..minor glitch in vapor sensor registering non-existent leak -waiting for engineers to fix code..milage overall driving 38 mpg's comfortable ride
The wife loves the proximity key feature. Great on gas and surprisingly roomy. I wasn't too happy with the style initially but it has grown on me. It's a little low on power but what do you expect. I am happy to be saving a lot on gas. I recommend this car, I will be buying another Prius when this one gives up.
Not going to win a lot of style points but for practicality in an era of $4 a gallon gasoline it's hard to beat. The car is actually pretty roomy for both passengers and cargo given it's MPG. The quality is great - I've never had a problem with it. And with it's hybrid electric/gas engine it has surprisingly nice pickup.
Pros: mpg and very helpful MID
Cons: back seat spaceI have driven from Dallas to Orlando and back averaging 52 mpg. Another short trip from Houston to Dallas averaging 59 mpg. Overall I get between 52-54 mpg with 90% city and 10% hwy. Extremely pleased with my 2011 Insight LX. My fellow co-workers still can't believe this little Insight can do just as well as a 26K Prius for 6K less.
Pros: Good gas mileage
Cons: Wiper motor went out twice in 5 yearsI have over 200,000 miles and still no problems.
Pros: Technological dash board.
Cons: Price.If viewed for what it's meant to be, and that is an in-town economy car, one can only say the Honda Insight is a winner. We average 38 to 42 actual mpg with only in town driving. If you have to drive on the highway everyday, this car is not for you. I hate to say it, but you'd prolly like the Prius much better on the open road.
An Excellent Vehicle
Pros: MPG, interior size is excellent relative to exterior dimensions.
Cons: Needing a front wheel bearing at 34k miles.The vehicle is comfortable and reliable. It's great on long trips. Blizzak tires in the winter cut down on fuel economy by 2 or 3 mpg, something I anticipated. Ethanol in gasoline cuts down mileage perhaps 6 to 10 percent, something that affects every driver (meaning that we are all subsidizing the ethanol industry with reduced mileage).
