    Hey everyone! I’m here to sell my much beloved 2004 Honda Insight aka “Izzy.” I bought this car used about five years ago, when it had about 67,000 miles on it and a faulty IMA battery. Nevertheless, I drove out to Chicago, bought it, and drove it back to Iowa. It had been sitting for a little...

    We have too many cars and it's come time to simplify, so Bluesight (2003 Blue CVT Insight) is on the block. It's currently in Sarasota, FL and I don't really want to transport it (again) back to WI. I have a couple more races to go to, so it will not be ready to pick up (in Sarasota) until after...

    So I recently purchased an 02 CVT and was driving perfectly fine for a month commuting 110miles a day and was averaging roughly 52mpg. But recently when trying to maximize mpg with as light as throttle I can go, the car has start jerking when at the 19-25mph, 36-39mph, and 48-50mph range. It...

    Hi, I own a 2012 insight and have owned it for about a year now. I love everything about the car except for the inconsistent cvt transmission. An example would be, let's say I'm coasting down a hill with no throttle input (IMA on charge) and I slowly get on the throttle pedal. I would get a...

    Edit: Monthly bump. Still available at $1,800 for InsightCentral members, but about to post more widely for $2,000 (a bargain at that). I truly love my 16+ year old 1st Gen Insight, but, sadly, time has come for me to part with it and I want to find it a good home with others who love this...
  6. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I have a 2002 Insight with 212k miles. The transmission works well, however there is a whine while in gear. It is louder when in forward but still noticeably when in reverse. The whine is not present while in Park or Neutral. I did a lot of research on this forum about the bearing in...

    2002 insight CVT is surging and RPMs are going up/down like a TCC engaging & disengaging? Happens at cruise at say 60 mph when my RPMs would normally be at 2400 RPMs but now it hovers around 3000 to 3500, then occasionally drops back to normal 2400 RPMs... I notice the Instant MPG goes way...

    My 2001 w/CVT (156k miles) that I hardly ever drive but I keep it running and charged up, will go into gear, (drive and reverse and you can feel it going into the gear) but for some reason the car won't move at all in either direction. I jacked up the car and in neutral neither of the front...

  11. Problems and Troubleshooting
    About a month ago, my IMA light came on. It wasn't unexpected; my car is almost old enough to consent and it's still on the original battery. About two weeks ago, the Charge / Assist meter stopped working, the battery level started acting wonky, Auto Stop never activated even under ideal...

    After along absence, I've got round to looking at my broken down CVT japanese import. A few seconds after startup, the light next to D on the dash transmission display starts flashing rapidly.

    There’s a hill by my house with a perfectly placed stop sign. I can slow down to about 3 mph, and the G1 (CVT) turns off the engine, but creeps forward just well enough to keep rolling all the way down the hill without turning the engine back on. I can get up to about 29 mph with the engine off...
