Default Freshly painted Blue 2001 5-speed. 164k miles. $3550 obo

******* SOLD SOLD SOLD ************


Very nice 2001 Honda Insight
- 164,000 miles
- Blue
- Repainted last summer for cosmetic reasons only (old paint was faded)
- 5-speed manual transmission
- Transmission shifts smoothly with no grinding

- Hybrid Battery operates properly. Full assist and regen.
- Occasionally 02 sensor light comes on. Light currently off.
- Honda hood emblem is currently off the car. It is stored in the glove box. Put it on or leave it off for a smooth look. I had set it on the hood just for pics. Don't worry it isn't permanently mounted in the wrong place.
- Missing one small trim piece on dash
- Had additional aftermarket alarm(?) system in it. Light and switch still mounted. System not used since it has factory alarm.
- Upgraded to gaz rear shocks
- upgraded to better rear springs from KLR3CYL (Scott)

- Nice rear carpet mat
- Clear headlights
- Decent tires
- Good rims
- Tinted windows
- $350 treatment to windshield for extra protection
- Was 1 of 120 cars at the largest annual gathering of Insight owners (InsightFest 2016). You may have also seen it at InsightFest 2018.
- Previously owned by IC member who got out if the Insight ownership and moved on to pure EV

$3,550 obo
I right away discounted the price a bit for IC members.

Car is in Madison, WI.
I'm available during daylight hours on weekdays to show it. You really need to see it in the daylight to appreciate it.

Craigslist ad link with photos
https://madison.craigslist.org/cto/d...796551220.html

If you have it shipped I'd be happy to work with your shipper.
Or if you need a shipper I can point you to one I've used in the Midwest. Last time I shipped a single car it was under $500.

I like the color, what blue is that? Looks darker than the earlier Insights but lighter than the later ones.

Looks like I did not write down the O2 sensor code. I'll have to wait for it to show up again. Sorry.

I'll check on the color and get back to you. I think the lighting was a little deceiving. It was sunny when I took the pics and I was kinda in the shadows.

SOLD SOLD SOLD
Went to a member on IC in WA
Turns out shippers wanted $1,200 to ship it that far! Yipes.
New owner has paid for it and will fly in and drive it home.
Just waiting for snow threat to go away.

As always, I'm sure other cars will show up on my doorstep, so watch the For Sale section for other ones.
