Toyotas are easy. Open the hood, and the oil filter is right there, easily accessible.
AFAIK, Honda's R series (base Civic) still spins backwards but their K series (CRV, Civic Si), the L-series (Jazz/Fit) and all of their modern V6's spin in the other direction and have the filter in the front. I'm not certain on the Insight.
