Great HONEST car review...

So far, though, you have not been told what it’s like as a car; as a tool for moving you, your friends and your things from place to place.

So here goes. It’s terrible. Biblically terrible. Possibly the worst new car money can buy. It’s the first car I’ve ever considered crashing into a tree, on purpose, so I didn’t have to drive it any more.
Jeremy Clarkson takes a look at the Honda Insight 1.3 IMA SE Hybrid in the UK Times and rips it a new one.

The review is hilarious.

So you’re sitting there with the engine screaming its head off, and your ears bleeding, and you’re doing only 23mph because that’s about the top speed, and you’re thinking things can’t get any worse, and then they do because you run over a small piece of grit.
Clarkson's verdict

Good only for parting the smug from their money
Read the whole thing...It's a hoot, and indicative of the entire Church of Environmy. Feel the guilt drip away as you limit yourself and sacrifice the bare essensials on a pursuit of Utopia (That's in Kenya...I think).
