Default It's with great sorrow.

My 2005 Honda Insight. 250k miles, and had never left me stranded may have met it's unfortunate end as a result of a stolen car, hit and run. I'd just put new Vredsteins on it, and had it cleaned. it's been a fantastic car this entire time. I'm pretty sad about this, as this, was the car I really wanted. I'd had it six years, and we'd had so much fun together exploring the Pacific Northwest. Not sure what I'll be doing next yet. Still kind of processing.

Sorry for your loss. It is especially sad when a true Insight lover falls on misfortune.

Very sorry to hear about your loss. Itís very easy to get attached to a good insight. I lost my first one to a t bone in a Portland intersection three months ago. I was not hurt but it was a psychic shock. After about a week I started to look for another one which I soon found. It was a good way to recover from the sense of loss. And Iím driving and preserving another one of these great cars again.

I've got five cars. I just love the first one though. The other four are back ups in case something happens . There's nine insights in Crockett County now. Five of them were paid for under $1000 apiece. My $600 car is equal in every way to my first car Plus it's a citrus. There's a difference in a Honda insight and a beautiful girlfriend the car will be there in the morning. When you pay for the car it's your car . And it takes a while but you can figure a insight out .An predict its behavior.

I would hate to lose my car. Sorry for your loss. I've sent you a PM in case it might be available for parts or repair.

I am really sorry to hear that. I hope you find a replacement for your sweetie pie really quickly. I just love mine to pieces, too, so I can sympathize. Good luck with your next one.

PS, for some strange reasons the links for your four photos show up in my preview but not in your post or mine. Ah, the magic of computers.

The images aren't working. Sorry. My insurance is being difficult, and attempting to avoiding assisting me in this. Apparently, having your car smashed, while in your own driveway, while you're asleep, may not be covered.

I noticed 20 years ago if you were out in the middle of the desert and need A glass of water the insurance company if they could get out of it they would. That is another reason to drive $1000 Car you don't need insurance .and I also plan to be buried in my car which makes it even more efficient don't need a $10,000 coffin . That doesn't have a motor or transmission Air-conditioning stereo or windshield wipers. You know stuff that's useful! Check out Super lean burn on YouTube .ps my coffin Will have IMA bypass. bye
