- styling that compromises rear visibility, slow pickup, poor shifting CVT, terrible seats, dash
Purchased As Not Purchased
My wife and I took a loaded EX Insight out for an extended over night test drive and were left cold. The awkward styling compromises rear visibility with the odd split rear window. The tiny over worked engine does not sound or feel pleasant. The CVT transmission does not work well at all in this car. The dash looks like it was pulled from an episode of Star Trek and is very distracting and goofy looking. The seats are not shaped well for either more 6' frame or my wifes short stocky build. They grew uncomfortable sitting in them for over an hour. Many interior bits look and feel cheap. The carpeting is so thin it would be better placed on my porch. The door panels are plasticy and there is not much in the way of sound insulation. Even the sheetmetal feels wafer thin. If you lean on it or tap it a tin can sound erupts. This was the only car in recent memory that we couldn't wait to bring back to the dealership. Out next stop will be the Hyundai store.
