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.

My insight is now getting 51 miles per gallon. Well worth it especially when gas prices were soaring upward. Its not a fast car but has been very reliable and comfortable. We just got back from an 8 hour car trip and my poor back did not hurt at all--like it did when i had the VW Cabriolet! Wish it had a sunroof but i cannot complain.
