2001 Insight, suffered side impact from another vehicle on left front wheel.

Insurance want to write off the vehicle as repairs will be "too expensive".

Honda dealer says they cannot repair car as aluminium welding required.

Motor engineer says that special equipment needed to discharge and isolate the battery before any repair work can be done and that such equipment not available in the UK!

Motor engineer also adds that as there are no Honda approved repairers he would not be able to certify that the work had been carried out effectively.

Honda UK suggest that NSX dealers should be able to effect repairs.

Nearest NSX dealer says yes but will have to have the car delivered to them before they can assess the damage and that they subcontract the repairs in any case.

There is also a problem in assessing the value of a 2001 Insight, 17,000 miles when so few have been sold in the UK.

Main problem is that I liked the car, even managed 100mpg on some trips, InsightCentral helped solved the problem with the exhaust gas recirculation valve, petrol prices were rising...

want to add the "Crying or very sad" emoticons, counselling required? :cry: :cry:
