My handle is jamesb, and I live in Richmond Virginia and am very Happy to Be joining this forum. I'm the second owner of a 2000 silver DX a/c. I think I bought mine in 2005... I remember they where still selling first gen when I bought mine. I used to enthusiastically play the keep up the high mpg game. The car was 64.- lifetime average when I bought it with 90,000 miles on it. Now after some years of non concerned driving, a free Honda battery, and years dead in the garage... I'm happy to say it's still at 60.4 lifetime. I'm at about 170,000 miles now and was almost thinking of selling with the IMA light on when my new friend and insight guru jime came out to look at it. Well low and behold. He informed me I still had a perfectly strong and serviceable car. After spending a little time with him and learning about grid charging, I'm back in Business! ... well,.. Idler pully is noisy, wet seat belt, crumbly rear view mirror, broken temp knob, rear hatch latch broken... umm. Minor details!!
my biggest concern now is how much interest my 16 year old son has in it....
Oh well, Life, and the spaceship car go on!
Yours truly, jamesb
P.S. Thank you very much jime.

Welcome to IC. Nice to see an Insight owner regain their enthusiasm for the odd looking little gem. Keep up that grid charging, particularly if you start seeing any recals;)

Got it last week and just put it in! So excellent to be able to easily use the hatch back again.
Thank You Jesse.
