Drivability and handling is very good.
Mileage is about 600 miles on a tank, and we are very impressed with the economics.
Note that the insurance is slightly higher than I had expected and they indicate it is due to repair costs being higher on a hybrid. However, I think the other pros outweigh this, the only con I can come up with.
I'd had my heart set on a Prius, but the Insight edged in instead. It's a little zippier on the road than the Prius, even though the estimated mileage isn't as good. I haven't been able to log the estimated 40/45 MPG -- never getting above 38 -- but I've been running the A/C. For a small car, it has a lot of cargo room with the back seats down. I can load my mother's wheelchair with ease through the hatchback. All in all, I'm very happy with the Insight.
