To save you a click it is a 33,000 mile, 5-speed silver 2000 insight listed in Illinois for $6,800. At a dealership.
I have inquired about this car. The Carfax indicates that the car had regular maintenance until 2007, when the record stops. This implies that the car has been sitting idle for 12 years. The dealership has no information about why the car has been idle for so long. In any case, when asked about age-related "leaks or corrosion", the dealership indicated that it is "possibly fixing the transmission".

If I had the patience to address inevitable oil leaks from cracked and dried gaskets, I might be inclined to risk this purchase at a far lower price.

i'm interested in this car (for the right price of course). Has anyone looked at it or driven it? Also, any suggestions for a local shop that has some awareness of these cars to have a PPI done? I live in the Pac NW so not likely to get on a plane w/o some idea of what kind of shape this car is in. Thank you!

No, couldn’t find anyone to take a look at the car and Illinois. And I was too late for a PPI, dealer had no patience

I hope I do this correctly: St Louis area 2001 G1 CVT 136K posted on CL for $950, silver ; had high speed impact that impacted front end and passenger side rear quarter panel and wheel quite a bit. for the miles and price someone might want it just for the battery, drivetrain, seats, etc: I know the road well where the pics were taken so assume the impact took place there - they don't mention where the car is physically located now:

Is this a big dent on passenger side or?

I think it may be a dent. The bottom of the body seam and rocker panel area looks distorted...

I know dent repair on aluminum must be a different kind of challenge. I’m still kicking myself over the two citrus insight posted in Canada. I should have bought both. 5,000 usd with low miles?! No brainer.
