Here's a rare blue 2006 MT that is priced right (currently $3300).
Honda Insight 3DR HB Manua | eBay
I need the price to move north or I'm buying this car and it's the last thing I really need. Jeff652 check this out and compare it to the other blue. A few more mi but priced quite a bit lower. Hopefully you can show the Oregon seller this car and get a better deal.

That car was bid to $5100 before the auction was stopped (sold to a friend of mine). Guess the demand for our Gen1's continue in spite of record lower oil prices.

Core Insight people who buy these cars like them for the gas mileage regardless of the price of gas. It's only when gas goes way up and newbies outside the core start buying them which drives the prices up. And that car actually sold for $5,400 with the $300 processing fee. Pretty pictures but not a single word about condition and service done to the car. I'd say buyer will be spending another $2-3K on it in the first year.

Seems to be a lot of decent insights coming up for sale in that price range (4-7K) lately. I've seen at least a 1/2 dozen in New England the past couple of months, most w/ mileage in the 110-150K range. Sure there are a lot of drivable junks, but there is still decent supply (and demand) for the good ones...

For the record, I bought it for $4700+300 processing fee despite what eBay shows. I can explain if needed. I paid an additional $400 for delivery.

I pulled the car fax before purchasing and edited it slightly by removing website addresses from the dealer along with phone numbers to save space. Post was too long: I haven't owned a Honda car since my 1992 Civic Si but this looks like a very good service history to me. I highlighted a couple of things that caught my eye.

Edit:
Overall the car is in great shape, but not perfect. IMA working perfectly. Car drives smooth and shifts without synchro issues, which were my two biggest ($$) concerns. Couple chips in the window up high and hidden behind the mirror while sitting in the driver's seat. The car needs a thorough cleaning! Blows my mind that people don't detail cars before auctioning. A few poorly done paint touchups. Two very tiny door dings on passenger side.
And it only came with the valet key. They are getting me real key and key fob.
The left spat got lost in shipping. And the tires weren't as good as listed, but I am replacing them to get the RE92's. They will be here Friday.
