To be fair...it's pretty hard to get positive words about a car out of him, unless it's an 80s or 90s Honda. It's happened, but not often.

I was driving to work in the Volt a couple of weeks ago and I blew around one of those old slow G1 Insights so fast that I had to slam on the brakes when I got next to it . . . to confirm it was my son, in my old Insight of course

Didn't want to scare some random stranger

The picture he paints of the kind of person who owns an Insight is amazing. I was kind of upset that he knocked the car a bit for maintenance issues like the 2nd gear synchro, but that's about how most of these cars are at this point.

If that bothers you, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT watch his Avenger video.

I'd say that is a fair criticism. Honda transmissions of this vintage are particularly prone to problems. He also mentions the Input Shaft Bearing is making a lot of noise.

Transmissions from a little bit older Hondas typically don't have as many problems, so it's not really an age issue.

I found this video comical because there will always be that "Negative Nelly/Nancy" out there making a bad comment or video.
