Welcome to the forums! Definitely interested to hear about your experience on the Insight in the future since you drive so many miles per year. :smile:
The Gen2 is a good car, but very basic. The ride and handling are ok, the interior is really bare bones and a little cheesy. I was coming from an '03 Accord coupe EXL so I definitely missed the creature comforts. To seal the deal I negotiated with the dealer to have after market leather seats and seat warmers installed prior to delivery, no doubt I had the only Insight with those features on the planet! :grin:Welcome, Hypermiler.
I was recently on the island a couple of times looking for 2019 Insights. As far east as the Amityville area, Islip area, and all highways west including the LIE. I must have missed you.
I almost purchased a 2013 Insight. I was actually watching YouTube videos today of them. My daughter is having car problems, so I'm wondering if a 2010 - 2014 Insight would work for her. I actually like a hatch back. And I think they looked fine. I like them better than the Prius!
