What is the Honda insight battery life?

I know of one that went bad at 170,000 miles. Honda charged $3500 for replacement. Inside it's just about $500 worth of (high quality?) rechargable D cells. They keep the old one! There's something about the older IMA/BCM controllers that lets the batteries overcharge, heat up for shorter than expected lives.

How does a cvt transmission work?

The engine rotates the principle drive at a constant velocity - this is connected to the final drive by way of a thick rubber belt which runs around between the principle drive's fixed diameter wheel and the final drive's variable diameter wheel. Imagine two cones placed together point to point. By moving these cones apart as the speed increases the belt drives a smaller and smaller diameter of the cones tips - the effect being very similar to a derailleur gear on a racing bicycle - large front / large rear = low gear, large front / small rear = high gear.

How much mph does the Honda Insight get?

My Insight can easily go at 85 MPH (5 MPH higher than the highest current speed limit where I live) but at this speed it gets less than 30 MPG. The car is capable of 55 MPG if on cruise control at 55 MPH, above and below 55 MPH the MPG gradually falls (45 MPG at either 45 MPH or 75 MPH, 35 MPG in the city).

How much is the Honda insight battery to replace?

If you buy a used battery from an auto parts dealer you can get a replacement for 350 to 400. This battery has not yet been reconditioned so in terms of a reconditioned batter you are probably talking about 700-800 dollars. Plus installation. Apparently this is not a hard do it yourself project so if you are handy then it might only cost you 800 dollars plus labor. Also... there are oppotunities to use higher density batteries from the current Honda Civic Hybrid or the new Honda Ingith hybrid. If you try to retrofit these batteries you may get improved performance with lkess battery weight. It will probably be a little more difficult to drop in....

What type of oil do you use for servicing Honda fit year 2005?

Use 5w20 weight. The brand you use is a personnel choice. I have used Pennzoil in all my Honda autos ever since 1989 when I bought my first one. I have never had an internal engine problem. Chang the oil and filter every 5,000 miles and use a quality filter such as Wix, or Purolator. Change the air filter every 30,000 miles.
