Just bought an Insight EX last weekend (Modern Steel Metallic with Mocha interior). Came from a 2006 Subaru Legacy that I've been driving for 12 years now. Will definitely be a learning curve for me, but am looking forward to it, especially since the 25 mpg I was getting with my Subaru wasn't conducive to my 70 mile per day commute. Got the Insight for around $23,500 out the door. Either Insight's aren't selling as well as Honda wants, or the end of the year is pushing dealers to accept lower offers. Either way, I'm happy with my purchase. Came with door edge guards, nitro tires, mud flaps, and wheel locks. They forgot to install the standard floor mats before the parts department closed, so they said they would ship them to me. Also, the center console coin tray is missing. I told the salesman before I bought the car that it was missing and even showed him a picture of what it looks like on Amazon (search for "Honda Insight Coin Holder" and you will see the replacement insert mats for all the center console items), and he checked all their Insights and couldn't find one in any of them. Guess I need to find one online. Decided not to get the extended warranty as $2750 seemed rather steep for 7 year/120,000 miles, with lots of exclusions that aren't covered by it. Will look into Honda Care instead (I see there are posts in this forum about that). Now I need to decide on which after market floor mats to get (Husky vs Tuxmat vs Maxpider). Looking forward to learning from fellow Insight owners on this forum!

I paid $23,850 out the door(Last Friday) and it didn't come with any accessories so you got a very good deal at $23,500 out the door. Lowest out the door offer I have seen so far actually. I have the husky floor mats and they're the best(Doesn't move around and have all the coverage I need). I did buy an extended Zurich maintenance plan 4 year/48K miles. (1 set of brake pad replacement (rear & front), unlimited headlamp replacement, unlimited replacement of any exterior & interior lights, belts/hoses, 1 battery replacement, 1 wiper blade replacement, 1 wheel alignment, towing, rental coverage, and trip interruption) for $760. Dealer added in 3 years of oil changes for buying it.


My Insight EX didn't come with the coin holder either(first time I heard of it, too).

I believe the coin tray only comes in the Insight's Touring model. The coin tray can be purchased from Amazon, but I haven't found I've missed it or needed it enough to purchase.

I swiped the coin tray from my wife's 2018 Civic right after she got it. So far, she hasn't said anything :). I just installed Husky Weatherbeater mats in my Insight EX. Far and away better coverage then the Honda high-wall mats. What I was most happy about was the left footrest coverage. The Honda mats did not cover that, and I was seeing a decent build-up of dirt there. As well, the rear "hump" is covered with the Husky mats, but wasn't with the Honda mats. I got mine new from an eBay store for much less than the Husky site. Just search up 2016-18 Civic mats. They are the same part number.
