I have listed on ebay a 2006 Insight with 102K miles that needs some work. The check engine light and IMA light have come on, but the IMA battery pack does not need to be changed, even though it's the original. The error code was p1440, and it took Honda 3 weeks of diagnostic work to determine that three sensors located underneath the transmission need to be replaced - at a cost of $3200.
Any enterprising folks are welcome to a cheap car to try your hand at fixing it.
