I miss my perceived cargo capacity of my neon.

The most was when I had an engine in the trunk, a transmission in the back seat, misc parts, and my friend/myself in the front both knocking on 250lbs. Barely had any trouble.

I read that the Insight has a rating of 400lbs for all passengers/cargo, I'm in the high 220lb range now and that really cuts it down! I have had myself and a friend who could be 300lbs without issue in there. If I needed to replace a strut on the neon, it's cheap. The Insight is expensive. I take more care going over bumps now.

With gas prices staying low I almost feel like it was the worst time to buy. It's neat getting great mileage but currently it's costing me money.
