Purchased As New
While I originally wanted a Prius because of an approx 10mpg difference; it was the difference in price that ultimately influenced my decision. After some calculations I quickly realized the Insight was a much wiser choice when it came to economics. In my opinion, green is great, but you have to be able afford it.
I live in FL, and soon after buying the Insight realized the energy saving climate feature would often leave me at a red-light or in stopped traffic with no AC! I was mortified! Had I not found a remedy to this situation - I would be an unhappy customer.
Fortunately, when coming to a stop on the hotter days, I simply need to temporarily turn of my "eco" button until I'm moving again - problem solved! Note: for this to work you need to take your foot off the brake for a sec if you pressed button after coming to stop/turn it off just prior to coming to a stop. And, remember to turn it back on once your moving again!
Now that I can get great mileage in a car I like, can afford, AND be comfortable when stopping on on hot days - I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY INSIGHT!!!
