Default 2006 Red CVT 72,000 Miles

As some of you know, I have been considering getting rid of my CVT Insight so that I can go back to a 5-speed. I currently have it listed on craigslist but I haven't put it on eBay yet. I've noticed that with eBay, you have to pay the fees even if the vehicle doesn't sell. I also live in Alaska, and may have shot myself in the foot by bringing the car up here. There isn't much demand for subcompact cars here. So hopefully someone out there is up for some adventure and would be willing to come up and drive it back home.

I'd recommend you put the car on ebay. Their car fees (to me) are insignificant and you would get the exposure you need. You may get lucky and find somebody looking for one not far from you. But a $10,000 CVT could be a tough sale with gas near $2/gallon.

I'd also put it on cars.com and autotrader.com. Someone in your area may pay a premium for your car to save on travel time and/or transport fees as these cars are hard to find in some areas. Good luck.

the price structure has changed almost as much as the price of crude. where a 5spd would sell for $6k just 6 years back there is little market for them in the $3k range now it appears.

there are several here around $4500-6k that have been on CL for months and months.

same is true for the HCH in my observation.

my old girlfriend drove an '87 CRX there all winter for several years.

i have lived and driven in colorado for decades and if a road is plowed and snow is less then 7-8" then i think of the front wheel drive as more than adequate and am always more concerned about the 5,000 lb behemoths flying down the road in 4WD with no ability to stop.

Yeah I see more SUVs in the ditch than compact cars for sure. When I lived in Canada with the Insight I got around just fine with winter tires as long as the road is plowed like you mentioned.

I'll definitely be putting it on eBay as well as the other two sites that Gerald mentioned. Haven't gotten so much as one phone call. I've also noticed that you can buy a substantially better vehicle for not much more money. I've seen used Chevy Volts as low as $12,000. But... there is still hope!

a friend bot a 2012 mitsubishi iMiEV for $8k with only 12k miles. very nice car too. i prefer them to the Leaf car.

i gotta feeling you are like a tree hugger in a logging camp and now you gotta worry your buddies will think your corks are too shiny without mud all over them.

next winter in alaska is gonna be hot too so hang in there. it may only be another decade before you guys get portland weather up there year round.

Looks like a twin to my 2006 with 59,000 miles. If you're in no hurry, hold out for close to your price.

And what's that about, "Phone calls only." You have it listed on the internet. People on the internet use email. If I was interested in the car I'd want to have all my questions written down to email to you so I don't forget anything. If you want people to call, place an ad in the paper.

Wait a year for gas prices to climb again, maybe? Nice looking car, but that drive to the contiguous 48 is loooong.

If they are really, really interested, they will call. After establishing dialogue over the phone, I would be happy to send anything through email.

What did you pay for your '06? Or have you had it for a while?
