How are the internals on these engines?

I recently learned that even the 67hp 3 cylinder economy engine in the Insight has forged pistons, forged rods, and a nitride coated forged crank. Since you lost a rod through the block, I'm guessing at least the rods aren't forged from the factory, and probably something you'd want to change.
