NOTE: Aftermarket window tinting may also cause the window to move slower and is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. According to Honda, no repair attempts should be made if the window features aftermarket tinting.

It comes hard on the heels of rivals Toyota recalling up to two million cars in Britain and Europe because of a sticky accelerator pedal.

But, the most important question is on whose account does the loss goes to, Honda or Customers who purchased the Honda Insight 2012? I think Honda should be honest and take the responsibility for the faulty products that cannot last over 88000 miles. It's a real shame on Honda. Customers please do not trust this organisation ever. Can someone advice me how I can make a legal complain to Trading Standards about this in the UK please? Car Reg: **.

My Honda Insight is burning Lot of oil before I get to my next oil Change. I have to put in more oil because my emissions light keeps coming on. When I checked the oil there was no oil on the stick - I added 2 1/2 quarts of oil. Took it to the dealer. They topped off the oil and said bring it back after 1000 miles of driving it. This is the third time this has happened. They found no oil leaks.

I have had my 2014 honda insight one year. I had to have in the shop 2 times. Both were senor. The last time they had my car one week I had no car and now my car on the recall list air bags. My car is now at honda. I'm have rental car. They use too much gas and they have my car now 7 days. I was told I am looking at June before I get my car back. Overall I love my car - so good on gas, a lot of room in the back. Miss my car.

The recall is to fix a defective master switch, which could cause water to enter the power window switch and in some cases cause a fire.

Second--if you can--find a station that has no-ethanol regular. There's a website, puregas, where you can find the nearest station. Fortunately there is one in my little town. The performance of the ICE (and therefore the charging of the battery) is greatly improved by using true regular, which has about a 3% higher power density over 10% ethanol gas. You will notice that in your gas mileage.

36 mpg city or hwy considering I drive the freeways at 85 mph as often as I can. I also use the A/C full blast almost always.... So pretty darn good gas mileage, I must say. Drives great, very low maintenance, good looking exterior, especially in my snow white exterior and double dutch black tinted windows throughout (including medium gray illegal tint on the windshield).

Let me tell you my story. I drive a 2004 Ford excursion Diesel 6.0 me and my wife was talking about if we die we should trade in the truck for a Honda van. So we drew all day looking for a Honda dealership we finally found one in Van Nuys. We talked this was going to be a good dealership and treat us with respect and kindness. I needed a van because my wife is going to have another kid and that's going to make our family was four so now it's going to be six of us - that's a big family.

4. Inspect the run channel alignment, both inside and outside the door. Pay close attention just below the door skin (this is a common area for the run channel to be pinched). If the run channel is pinched, replace it, then adjust the run channels and the glass as needed. If the run channel is not pinched, go to step 5.

I bought a used 2010 Insight about a year ago. It had 37K miles. I consistently get 46.9 - 47.3 when checked each 1K miles at which time I reset the trip meter. I was skeptical at first, but checked it by checking mpg the old school way, and it agreed with the car's on-board computer.

I own a 2010 insight. Bought it with 3 miles on it. Now has 56000 and going strong. Have done regular maintenance on it and doesn't let me down. Get great gas mileage. Full tank last me about 2 weeks. The only repair I have is the battery, other than that it's great. The truck is spacious and the back seat is big. Downside - no cruise control. Have had 2 other Hondas and all are great.

2. Lower the window all the way down with the power window switch.

I judge the van for three days. The second day I called the dealership. I ask him did they finance me for the van. They said "yes". I was very happy to my wife. She was very happy. I ask who is financing me. They told me Wells Fargo. I told him "OK" so I went down now. The next day took off. All my Quitman off my truck. Cut the wires with a box cutter. Took out all my equipment. Cost me a lot of money just to install the equipment. Probably paid up to 25 or $3500.

2. Inspect the visible portion of the run channel for damage or contaminants. If damaged, replace the run channel. If the run channel looks OK, go to step 3.

9. Pull up and hold the power window switch until the window goes all the way up, then keep holding the switch for 1 second. Make sure that the auto-up/down feature works correctly by lowering and raising the window with the power window switch. If it does not work correctly, repeat the manual reset several times, paying close attention to the 5-second time limit. If it still does not work, troubleshoot the power window circuit.

Loud whistling wind noise at 50 MPH and above. The car gets decent gas mileage, I cannot complain about it. The wind noise is terrible. The third time the dealer checked it out they said it was coming from the air intake to the engine and they could not do anything about it. Quite frankly, I found the answer hard to believe but there does not seem to be anything I can do about it.
