If you think I'm a tough reviewer...


... by all means, have a look at this auto review of the Hybrid Insight. I'll give you an excerpt:

Much has been written about the Insight, Honda’s new low-priced hybrid. We’ve been told how much carbon dioxide it produces, how its dashboard encourages frugal driving by glowing green when you’re easy on the throttle and how it is the dawn of all things. The beginning of days.

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.

I love Jeremy Clarkson's reviews. Generally speaking, I usually don't read car reviews but he seems to make everyone angry, and is certainly worth a read.

I read your reviews anyway, but if all your comments were angry retorts, I would the read your reviews twice!

Lao: ha! I'll start my next review, "I would rather shove a red-hot spork in my eye than drink one more sip of LaoChaGui Tea's latest offering. Heaven, spare us from such villainy!
