first-time stick driving on Insight

I just bought an '01 5-speed Insight on e-Bay, and I have to fly down to Anaheim this week to pick it up. Problem is, I've never driven stick before. Is the Insight an easy car to learn on? It seems like the Auto-Stop function would make stalling I right? Are there any other quirks and foibles I should know about manual Insights?

Much appreciated,

I was wondering which Insight you bought and how much you paid. Was it the blue one in Anaheim Hills from DC Motors? Just curious, good luck learning the 5-speed, I have found the Insight to be a very user-friendly 5-speed.
One car, two or three ads.

In my search for an Insight I have noticed that a dealer will list the same car, at two different places ( and, for example). Additionally, the prices can be different, (2k+) and some of the ads says the car is Certified, some not. Does anybody know what is going on here, is this an honest selling strategy? Can I somehow use it to get the best price? Let me know what you think.
