Our Fleet Test Drive: Honda Insight - 4th Report

Date: 03 June 2010   |   Author: Tony Rock

Temporary windscreen
Category: Lower medium
P11D price: £19,233
Key rival: Toyota Prius

Having already suffered a flat tyre, the Insight's now had its rear windscreen smashed - in central London between 6-9pm.

To guard against an overnight downpour I taped a binliner over the hole, which wasn't a good look, particularly when some tape came loose, causing the black plastic to flap and slap about at 50mph down the A20 the next morning. To top it all off, Auto Windscreens had to go to Honda for replacement glass, which took a couple of days. They did, though, do a far better temporary job, using cellophane-type material when Perspex wouldn't fit (above).
