Let me know if there are any errors in the listing. Any comments welcome and a few bids wouldn't hurt, thanks.

-- Rebuilt title, salvaged, ...
The car was smashed up so badly that the insurance company preferred to cash out on the damage rather then pay the repairs. That's some major damage.

What is so puzzling to me is why there are so many of them?

I guess you donít understand how insurance companies work and how little damage it takes to total an older car, especially with an aluminum body. I suppose you rather it have gone to a junk yard and get cut up for parts instead of being saved?

Hi atikovi,
I see your point and I think you're right. The ones I was thinking about are the cars that were salvaged like 2 or 3 years after they rolled out of the dealership. That's going to be 60% or 70% of the original purchase price of the car. That's some damage.

On older cars, they get a scratch and the insurance company pays out $500 to salvage the whole car. Something does seem to be out of balance here.

WOW! That is a gorgeous car and one hell of a detailed eBay listing I've EVER seen!
Good luck to you buddy, although I'd keep that one if I were you.

Wow, that red is either nice or you got a great camera. Look at how clean it is around the gas cap.

Is this the treatment all your cars get or only insights?

Man, seeing these Insights like this one here for sale makes me want to start fresh and buy a clean one from the get go. I came across a sharp 2006 blue CVT a few weeks back, and if I hadn't gadgetized my car already and made it uniquely mine, I would've totally considered buying it and selling my silver one. The seller, like atikovi, appeared to be very knowledgeable about the car based on his ad and photos. I think with these cars it's important to buy from someone who's passionate and well-versed in the mechanics and care of the Insight.

I think I would pay asking price for atikovi's red one if he were local. Everything on that car looks clean and major work done. EGR plate even done! What a steal!
