    Hi, all -- You may recall our adventure of replacing our gorgeous 2001 how to replace gen1 IMA battery with a 2000 after she lost against a deer :-( She ran well for a couple of months, including performing well on the 2001 battery, but then developed some hiccup that we can only describe...

    Hello! I'm in the market for a Gen1 Insight. The one I've got my eye on, sold by a private seller, is advertised as having a modern Bubmlebee battery installed, with receipt. I ran an Autocheck, and though it came back clean, the battery replacement was not listed under the detailed vehicle...

    Hi, saw these posted in Seattle and thought I would post here as they seem like some good examples if you're looking to purchase a used Gen 1. I own a used 2001 CVT Gen 1 for two months now which LOVE! Today I averaged 70mpg over 170 miles! Learned so much reading threads here and looking to...

  7. Modifications and Technical Issues
    Hi, I got my insight a few weeks back. Fortunately I have no IMA errors, however I have had a few negative recals. I know its never been grid charged, so hopefully this will be a worthy modification. I've used Mike's electrical diagram (thank you) that uses Meanwell power supplies in series...

  10. MPG Issues
    We have owned our 03 Insight for 5 years. The car has been my wife's daily commuter until the last year and a half when we decided that she needed an SUV. So we found a Ford Escape Hyrbrid as a compromise vehicle so that she could get the 4wd and space she wanted and still get respectable fuel...
