It looks like the listing has been updated. It has 160,000 miles and has a "minor scratch." (pic shows a hole in the body) Seats appear worn as well. Plus it's listed "as is." Don't know about other places, but in Manitoba that means it doesn't have a valid safety inspection and probrably wouldn't pass one. (otherwise it would have one)

Things that seem too good to be true usually are.

And with my standard luck, they always are....

I ran the carfax. nothing of note, other than the high mileage. Last mileage (162,922) was reported in January of this year when it sold at auction.

This is the highest mileage Insight I've seen. How about anyone else?

That's the same car I noted going through the auction here:

Now if anyone really wants to make things messy since they only put the mileage in as 163 rather than 163,000... well. For the miles it actually looks to be in pretty decent shape, might be a car for EV conversion or one to just drive in to the ground cheaply.

Hi All:

___Even at $5,000 Buy It Now, it is a way over priced with those kind of miles …

___Good Luck

Nope, they aren't allowed to tell. I would imagine not much though since it is as is when anythings over 100,000 miles.

Thanks,
I may go take a look if I get a chance just to see how the IMA is working at that many miles. Have fun, Rick

35 month old Insight for £4,999.

I bought my 2000 Insight at 35 months old, from a Honda dealer, with 2 years Honda warranty thrown in, 64,000 miles (all by the dealership owner), full service history, in A1 condition for Sterling£4,999. 14 months later it has 87,000 on the clock and is running like a train.

Well it looks like someone paid the buy it now price on the Insight with 163K miles. I thought I might make the run to Charlotte today to check it out. Anyway I sent them an email and asked for them to join us on the list as well as report how their IMA was doing.
While I was looking I noticed that their is a 2000 with 370? miles. The dealer has the display on segment and recorded that as the mileage. Someone apparantly corrected him and he has amended the post. Have fun, RIck
