Gen1, 5-spd manual transmission

Original owner, asking $4000 obo. As much as I liked driving this car, getting in and out of the low seats gets harder as one gets older!

The Good:
93,803 miles: used mainly for 15 minute daily commute, with longer trips in state of California.
Honda 5-CD changer.
New rear hatch stays installed in 2018
New lead-acid battery 2019
Hood, front fenders and roof repainted in 2016 to repair paint weathering
Runs fine, passed 2020 California smog test

The Bad:
IMA battery replaced in 2016 but expected life is unknown because it has not been driven regularly the past 3 years (it has been idled every week).

Tires were purchased in 2015 and have plenty of tread but sidewalls are cracking

Rear hatch opens manually with key but not with fob. This may be due to the latch adjustment (I asked the Honda dealer to look at it but it was not fixed.)

Interior has original Honda mats with normal wear & tear, fading. Driver's seat has hole (2-in x 1-in) worn in fabric.

Thank you, Jeff. It is not unusual to see Insights on the road here, so I am not sure what the level of interest is locally for another one. I would like to see it go to someone in the Insight community, though.

Probably sold
This car has not been sold but I am in discussions with an interested party here in California. Since they are not local, I need to replace the tires (probably will have that done this coming week). I will post any change in status. Thank you for your interest.

I would be interested in purchasing, live in the SF Bay area & wouldn't need new tires.

I believe I typed a reply in the wrong section.

I was able to sell the car today to a local buyer. Thanks again to everyone who expressed interest, and thanks to the forum for connecting me to the Insight community.
