Default Sale: 2002 Silver MT Insight w/New Battery!

I really want to hold on to this car but I'm getting ready to move and have way too many cars. Whomever buys this car is in for a really solid deal!



This car is in true top notch mechanical condition. I would hop in and drive it cross country right now with little hesitation. I really enjoy auto repair and fancy myself a bit of an amateur mechanic. I went all out to maintain this car and perform every bit of preventative maintenance I could think of. When I first bought the car (approx. 10k miles ago) I removed the engine and transmission. I rebuilt the transmission with all new bearings direct from Honda. I replaced the clutch at the same time. I went over the engine and replaced a multitude of parts. I cleaned everything with a scrub brush slightly bigger than a toothbrush!

This weekend I replaced the IMA battery with a brand new unit from Hybrid Revolt. I have the receipt and it includes a 1 year fully transferrable warranty. The engine purrs like a sewing machine. The transmission shifts silky smooth and there is no 2nd gear grind as I performed the “syncho” mod when I rebuilt the transmission. All electronics work and the digital gauge cluster looks good. It's a southwestern car so there is no significant rust or oxidation on the frame or any other metal pieces. I have just detailed the interior, exterior, and engine bay in addition to replacing or topping off all the fluids.

I maintain a detailed log of every bit of work done to the car since I purchased it with the date and mileage the work was performed. I will give the log to the new owner.

I think the only potential failure points I haven't touched are the wheel bearings, fuel pump and shocks/struts. But there are no signs of problems with any of these.

In addition to the brand new battery, the car has Scott's (KLR3CYL) upgraded rear springs and underbody panel. I also added aftermarket pioneer speakers and stereo.

Mileage:
Approx. 251k

Thank you for the kind words!

FYI, I just replaced the radiator (preventative maintenance), both front tires (RE-92), and removed the seat covers and washed them.

I'm just back from a 600 mile trip to Vegas where this car got 72.8 mpg!



Here are some additional pics of the car:
