What issues did you encounter and/or were too many to live with on the Insight?

I took 20k trade in on a new HRV, my insight was 2mo. old.. better take a loss now than later, engine races like clutch slipping, too many problems on this car

Additional comments:
I didn't like the slipping tranny, going up hill engine races but car has no power, brakes make loud sounds woa-woa kinds of a sound, Only 44 mpg, thats ok cause I live up a hill... more dislikes than likes, I like the looks, just seen the old insight the ugly one, can't see it still running, looks like 70's... Don't get me wrong I love my Honda's but new turbo & Hybrid's got too many bugs to work out....

Nice, Mazda is known for good driving and handling characteristics. The car has cylinder deactivation on the higher trims. It varies from person to person on what they think of it so test drive the car fully. Also I have read this is a good time to sell your old car because dealerships are bidding up used vehicles on the wholesale auction market. They think higher used car prices will last until August. Tough time for dealers seeking inventory as wholesale values soar

I have not heard good things about Mazda's CVT transmissions. Not from personal experience, but most automotive message boards are not complimentary to them. May be something to check before you leap - and purchase an extended warranty to be safe.
