Default 2006 at my Honda Dealer's today

I stopped by my local Honda Dealer today & was surprised to see an 06 Insight parked in the lot.

Try the link to my photos below.

It had the CD player & 4 speakers, 5 speed stick, differant color seats. Sticker price was $21,080. I will take my 01 Automatic in tomorrow to talk trade.

Default Test drive of 06 Insight

I just returned home from test driving the 06 Insight I wrote about yesterday. It only has 12 miles showing & I love the new small.

I told them what I would need for my 01 Insight CVT with 69,000 miles.

After some negotionations they agreed to my figures. I will think it over & decide by Mon.

If I get this car my wife wants to trade in her 04 Civic Hybrid in for an 06. They will have an Opal Silver Blue Metallic one in by Dec 31st.

The 06 Civic Hybrid brochere says at speeds under 35 mph & light throttle it runs on batteries only. It also says 50mpg in town & 50 mpg highway. That's better than our 04 but these figures hard to get.


We will see who gets a new hybrid Mon.

Default My 06 Insight will be here Dec,16,06

My Wichita ,KS Honda Dealer finally got busy & found me a Silver 06 CVT Insight yesterday. It's 804 miles from here but I should have it in a week.

If you are looking for one try "Autotrader". I found five 05s and one 06 within a days drive from Wichita. It will give you the Dealer's email & phone# & miles from your zip code.

If you are looking for an 06 call Alan Makabi at Randy Kuehl Honda in Cedar Rapids Iowa, 877-334 0733. He has an 06 -5 speed now and a Blue 06 CTV coming mid Dec.

If a new 05, CVT will work call Marc Verner at O'Neill Honda in Overland Park ,KS. 888-874 5243. There are two more 05s in the Chicago area.

PS My wife's 06 Civic Hybrid will be here Dec 31 so I should have my Insight first Yaa-Hooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the civic, you might want to wait until Jan 1st to take delivery so you can get the new tax credit.

Default 06 Tax credits on Hybrids???

Ricky & All,
We understood that we can get $2000 tax credits each on our 06 Inight & 06 Civic Hybrid if purchased in 2005.

Is there more tax credit in 2006?

Our dealer is not too helpful here. They say to talk to our tax advisor.(We don't have one)

Default credit vs deduction

For 2005 it is a $2000 deduction for hybrids. For 2006 it is a variable tax credit, but does not apply to the Insight with a manual, only the CVT. A deduction means you can lower your taxable income by $2000, so if you're in a 15% bracket that will save you $300 in taxes, in a 28% bracket it will save you $560. Also the deduction will lower your income for state taxes as well. For 2006 you get a credit, which lowers your federal tax bill dollar for dollar.
So a $1000 credit is 2 to 3 times better than a $2000 deduction.

Default I picked up my 2006 Insight today

Today was an exciting & at the same time sad day. I traded in my 2001 bue Insight today for a shinny new silver 2006. (Both can be seen in the link below.)

I will miss my 01 & will always remember what a great car it has been. I have not had one problem with it in the 17.000 miles since I bought it. It is already sold to a nice College student who has looked for several years for the right Insight. I hope to see it around town in the future.

Both cars have the CVT and are almost identical. The 06 does have a CD player with 4 speakers with a much better sound. The interior is a lighter color & the headrest have a peek hole. Dave in Kansas
