I drive a great deal, about 110 miles per day. The car is comfortable to drive for the distance. I have also noticed that mileage has actually improved, now about 50 miles per gallon the longer I drive the car. If you're driving a distance, I definitely recommend the Insight.
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.
There's only one con so I'll get it over with quickly. When you are stopped in traffic with the eco on there's no ac. I live in TX ,it's 103� outside and it gets hot in there fast!
I will eventually trade this car in for another insight in years to come! Surprisingly roomy, excellent, and I mean EXCELLENT on gas, it's sleek and quiet. I bought mine very gently used for a bargain price at carmax . If I could go back and do it again I wouldn't change a thing . I'm a Honda girl no matter what but I'm beyond pleased and impressed by my car!!
