2002 Honda Insight 96k mi Blue $4000 (Cincinnati, OH)

Seems like a nice sub 100k mi car for a decent price especially if you are in the area. Especially like the comment, "With grid charging, the IMA battery can last indefinitely." Guess his grid charger must be made by God. Other than that, seems like a nice car:

2002 Honda Insight: 75mpg

I am selling my 2002 Honda Insight, in order to buy another toy. The price is $4000 firm and is based on the Kelley blue book value. The car is in good shape, inside and out. I have installed a grid charger to the IMA battery, because the IMA battery could be replaced. I currently grid charge overnight once a month. With grid charging, the IMA battery can last indefinitely. However, you could choose to replace.

I am the 2nd owner. Here are the things I have done since owning:
-New spark plugs
-New engine and cabin air filters
-New brake pads and rotors
-New tires
-Transmission flush
-Coolant flush
-Installed Hybrid Automotive Grid Charger

The car really does get up to 75mpg from summer through fall. However, the mpg drops to 48mpg in the winter.

Why would he list a "Transmission flush"?

Move of CL Discussion

The discussion of Craigs List options has been moved to the polls section. Do not post further such discussion in this thread as that would be off the thread subject.

2001 MT 63k mi $3300 Ft. Wayne, IN Scam Alert

2001 Honda Insight

I talked to the owner and he said the title stated it was "exempt from mi". He bought it at an auction 2 weeks ago and said that he feels the 63k mi are original. Carfax says the odometer has been reset twice and according to my calculations this car has closer to 300k mi rather than 63k mi. Carfax says, "Branded Title: Not actual mileage." Seller will take $3k. This deal now turns out to be rather bland vs the killer deal it appears to be so I'm passing.

The seller indicated a 1.3l engine. Got to see this one.
AFAIK, the lifetime miles cannot be reset without replacing the "cluster".
You can reset the LMPG.

Maybe the cluster was replaced twice. Here is the problem area on the carfax:

01/11/2008 80,225 mi Prime Honda Saco
Saco, ME
driveprime.com Recommended maintenance performed
Oil and filter changed
Battery replaced
Engine/powertrain computer/module checked
Two tires mounted and balanced
Four wheel alignment performed

05/27/2008 13,607 mi Prime Honda Saco
Saco, ME
driveprime.com Recommended maintenance performed
Brake light bulb(s) replaced
POTENTIAL ODOMETER ROLLBACK

And then another problem on the carfax:

10/28/2013 152,000 mi Ganley Pontiac Honda
North Olmsted, OH
ganleyhonda.com Oil and filter changed

12/05/2013 63,599 mi Dealer Inventory Vehicle offered for sale
MILEAGE INCONSISTENCY

Assuming the clusters were replaced twice this car does not have 300k mi on it but definitely more than the 63k stated on CL. Willy, thanks for the info.

When we can post in individual threads you will see them back, make sure you vote to allow this in the poll, we are at 80% now but we can get it up to 95% if enough members vote.

I'd put them in the eBay section if it were me.
Threaded in one long post doesn't work so well.
I think this is terrible. It seemed much easier to just say "not mine" or "found it." But then again, I am not the kind of person who posts their personal information on the web, to be stored and available for everyone lol, like many of the advertisers.

Hugely Overpriced

Well here is the outrageous other extreme that some folks will ask. Ten thou for a car with 124,000 miles;)

I think its because its a CVT. I was getting offers of 3-4k when I was selling my 01 cvt with 70k miles last year. Finally sold it for $4k after having it listed for half a month. I think people are generally scared of Honda cvts because of all the damaged cvt transmissions we keep hearing about. Yes there are some which lasted more than 200k, but lots seem to go early.

I called him. The battery was replaced by a local honda dealership, he has the paperwork. Car looks very nice. Let me know if you want me it look at it. He said his is mostly city driving.
