2010 Honda Insight Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 242011


  • 1,100 miles


This vehicle was sold without any means of securing the gas cap or fuel access door. Because of epa emission restrictions there is no functional aftermarket device made for this vehicle. This is a serious safety issue. There is no way to restrict access to the fuel tank of this vehicle, of serious consideration when the vehicle must be parked in unsecured locations either on purpose or at such times when the vehicle may become mechanically non-operational. My wife takes the vehicle on her visitation trips into areas where she is required to leave the vehicle unattended for hours. She could be isolated in these unsafe areas easily due to someone removing the gasoline from the tank or someone putting foreign material into the tank thereby damaging the vehicle. Honda's intentional omission of some type of locking device for this vehicles places anyone who uses this vehicle in unnecessary peril. Because it is a known condition on this vehicle, the vehicle becomes a ready target for anyone willing to vandalize the vehicle and people who would prey on people unable to defend themselves in questionable circumstances. Honda must provide some means for securing the gas tank of this vehicle and provide a device which also meets the emission requirements of the federal government.
