This is now a little dated (since the 2020 Insight model is now out)... but wanted to share that the 2019 Insight made the Top 10 list in Car Connection's list of "2019 Best Cars to Buy."

The 2019 Insight had the 2nd highest score among the Top 10 nominees AND was the only sedan on the list among SUVs and trucks. The 2019 Subaru Forester was the top "buy" recommendation, despite it's lower overall score.

My mom has a 2017 Forrester and has had nothing but trouble with the infotainment system. They've replaced the head unit under warranty and are now saying there is nothing more that they can do. It has a mind of its own. Plays random stations, won't change volume, stores new "stations" under presets (that aren't even active frequencies). She loves the Insight (although she mentions the low passenger seat at least once a trip).

I feel bad for her, every car that she has owned with a touchscreen has had major electrical issues. She was the first of us to get a Dart (2013), had to have her nav unit replaced twice.

Got a 2017 Jeep Renegade that would randomly shut all external lights off, after 3 months she traded it in (and took a huge hit, because they bought it cash) for the Subaru that her boyfriend picked because of Consumer reports. She still misses her 2005 Jeep Liberty, and that thing tried to kill her with the ball joint issue that ended up being a recall.

Cars just aren't made like they used to. :sad: Look at the user reviews for the gasoline Toyota Rav4 on edmunds (https://www.edmunds.com/toyota/rav4/2019/consumer-reviews/) and the Honda CRV (https://www.edmunds.com/honda/cr-v/2019/consumer-reviews/). :eek:
