  2. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hello all. New to the forum and recently got a 01 Insight from a friend. I've spent the past two months, thanks to this forum, getting the maintenance all up to date. But one thing I have yet to fix is the roof pillar molding. I was told it leaks during the rainy season and I saw Scott's video...
  3. Problems and Troubleshooting
    While installing a grid charger over the weekend, I found that some of the aluminum paneling around the back of the IMA (drivers side) was bent out of shape, thus preventing me from putting the cover back on properly. As of now the bolt holes aren’t lining up because of this bent aluminum...

    Hello everyone! I just bought an 06 MT 1st Gen and will eventually HAI it but I wanted to take a "roll call" of sorts of those of you who have one. List: 1.

    Car is an absolute gem. I’m sad to see it go, but COVID has nixed my office commute and it’s difficult to justify having it sit around. The previous owner was a retired gentleman who had this stashed in his shop for years. Hoped I could've had more time with it, but c'est las vie! Automatic...

    Hello; I am in the market for a newer car to replace my hot garbage Saturn sedan.

    My Blue Hurricane 2001 Gen 1 is still running well at 191,000, but she's got a few war wounds that need fixing. The hood is full of stone dings, both front doors have suffered my amateur attempts to repaint them, and the rear plastic bumper got pushed in from a parking lot accident. So I'm...
