I have had my Insight for 10 months now.. I remember hearing the ads on a podcast I listened to all the time (I'm a nerd so it was probably a tech podcast) and wanted one so bad.. I was driving my 2015 Civic and hated how rough it seemed to shift even with a CVT (and it was slow).. I remember pulling up next to one (I'm in Florida so it was a REALLY old lady driving it) but I was taken by it.. Since I've had my car, I have seen MAYBE 6 since that day.. I don't mind being one of the only ones to have it. I drive for Lyft every once in a while and a LOT of people who ride in it comment on it.. My number one comment "This is nice - is it electric?" and the other one is "Is this the Accord Hybrid?".. The second one I get because it has the Accord dash.. The general public loves it.. I do have to point out the third comment which goes against a lot of observations here - "this car is quiet!".. Everyone here who says that needs to jump into a civic for a short drive then get back into your Insight.. Yes it can be harsh when you're hammering on it, but these cars are pretty **** cool!
