I only know one person who owns an Insight, and this is what I remember him saying of that car:-It's not a car you get for performance, meaning don't expect to be winning races with it. It's a car you buy to get you from point A to point B without breaking down and needing repairs every other week (his experience with his previous vehicle). It gets the job done well and is reliable. -You get better gas mileage if you only fill the tank half full. The weight makes a big difference. Even filling the tank half full, you still don't make a lot of gas station trips, it's just that good.-Don't buy it if you actually want to drive people around.
