Sadly my beloved insight is Kaputt, having been left idle for too long while I was working for a few months. A kind Honda dealer suggested this forum would be a good place to ask a panel of experts how much the car might be worth if sold as is, and also if I paid for the necessary repairs. I haven’t got pictures of external body work issues but have described it below.

2009 Honda Insight, Hybrid, 5 door, petrol
Reg: YD59TGX
Miles: 99,500 (there abouts)

Cosmetics:
- Scratch across rear passenger side door with dent
-Passenger side front number is slightly loose


EPS: Main issue is the electronic power steering is completely broken and they need to replace the console to even diagnose the problem.
Quoted cost from Honda: £1221.91

4xdisc/pads = £460
2x front fog lights corroded (but I’m pretty sure still functional) = £598.20(!!)

I’ve been offered £2000 as part exchange with the Honda dealership but obviously that means buying a quite expensive second hand car from them.

Is there any scope for this car being bought by an insight fan somewhere or should I just sell it for scrap?

many help much appreciated, let me know if you want any more details. Will try and work out how to attach photos of the car.

I’d take the part exchange tbh, though some guys here in Ireland 🇮🇪 strip and sell fir parts and seem to do ok( ones I’ve seen but that’s a slow process)
Would be a nice present for a newly qualified driver - spend a bit / gain a lot

Fixed Garry's reply for him.
