Hay guys, not to worry. I am 74 years young and appreciate your feedback.
Are you the gentleman that I spoke to concerning your red Insight for sale? I really loved that car and if I had the cash I most likely would have offered you less but I'm sure it was worth five. That said I found a blue one with 116k miles for 1100. I will put a bit of work in it but tires, hatch struts and battery and maybe even new carpet and seats eventually with lithium battery conversion. I guess if you're willing to spend a little time and love with the car you can get it to where you want it but peace of mind just buying a clean car to start out with and nothing to do to it but turn a key? To me that is priceless.

Yeah, IMA is almost exactly 4 years old. Being a CVT and with grid charging might get a couple of more years or more out of a Honda replacement. On the other hand, maybe the IMA light has already winked;)

Looks like a beautiful car and truly low mileage relative to most Insights in the market.

Nothing has winked....I wouldn't sell it with a problem....sounds like you would 😉
No I wouldn't either, but lots of folks have. You should expect questions particularly about the battery at 4 years old. I do think it is a very nice car and wish you good luck with it. The price seems fair to me.:)

At the moment the car it’s not starting due the IMA battery been no charge.

Notable info bolded by me. Looks like it just sat for 8 months and needs a grid charge. But $600 for a blue Insight (blue is the best Gen 1 Insight color, just sayin' :D), manual transmission, with a potentially working battery, is pretty much the cheapest Insight I've seen outside a faded red $400 one in Texas with IMA light and engine knock.



Does it come with the dog? :D

I have an Insight but I still like window shopping. I have a whole page of saved Insights for sale online. Anybody looking for an Insight? :D
