mine looked a little off too. It should be flush.Thanks for sharing this! I have the fuel lid that doesn't line up very well with the rest of the body of the car, I mean it feels like it doesn't close properly when it's in the closed position. I got the car last week, so only drove it a few miles now, but not sure if this is something they can fix or it is already how it's supposed to be.
Mine was the same way, it sticks out a little from the body line.mine looked a little off too. It should be flush.
I don't think it's normal, did you go back again to have them fix it?I just bought my 2019 Insight EX and the fuel door was also not flush. Was told all of the Insight models are like this(I checked the other Insight in the showroom and it was the same). Dealer think it might be intentional, if not Honda will do a recall maybe.
They pretty much told me to go check the other Insights in the showroom. I did and they all had the same issue. They don't have a solution for it from Honda at this time. I have had soap from car wash and rain water get inside(Fuel door even froze once due to this). Luckily the car has a gas cap and that stuff just goes into the drain hole below the cap. I have reached out to Honda corporate and they just told me no reports of this issue. Due to no reports from other owners, they don't have an official solution for a fix, and it is up to the dealership to provide a resolution. They logged my report and closed out the case... Essentially I'm getting bounced back and forth. I haven't try my local Honda dealership(Bought my Insight at a different dealership) but will mention it when I'm due for regular service.I don't think it's normal, did you go back again to have them fix it?
This pretty much describes my Insight's fuel door. Flush in the front but just slightly outward in the back.They look flush and I believe they are perfectly flush at the front but seem to taper just slightly outward toward the back rather than being 100% flush.
In case you haven't seen it yet, there are some pictures and tips from @Min Pin on the adjustment, earlier in this thread:I just went in garage and looked at my fuel door. The front is flush and you can't push it in. The rear is out a little and you are able to push it in slightly. I guess if it is adjusted properly you will not be able to push the front edge or rear or rear edge in. Please confirm if you have bent the latch? to fix as mentioned before.. Thanks, Bogey
I had to google what the penalty was for self serve gas in NJ. It's $50 - $250 fine for the first offense, and not to exceed $500 for each subsequent offense thereafter....Jersey Insight Owners - who else hates it when the gas station attendant starts banging on the fuel door thinking it's a Civic? I've learned to open the fuel door BEFORE I pull up to the pump to discourage this behavior.
I would kill for self serve gas in NJ.
Interesting - so there's a penalty in NJ if you fill your own gas, but it's legal and no issue to close the cap and door yourself? When I was in NJ, I thought the law required attendants to handle all gas pumping activities, so I stayed in my car.On a positive note, the CMBS kept me from running over the gas station attendant the other day when he stepped out from between the pumps. Yeah, I'm from NJ, so we have people that pump our gas (and mess with the fuel filler door thinking it's a Civic, and splash gas down the side of the car trying to top it off - this is why I open the filler door ahead of time, and jump out when the pump clicks off and say "I got this" to the attendant (who's always busy and appreciates the help)).
