This gives me a headache. I am on the opinion that this guy's car's failures are mainly due to his own stupidity. I use his lack of punctuation skills ("with additional repair's needed") and lifetime miles per gallon of 42.3 as evidence to support this opinion. He is now selling the car featured in his website.

He is also a member of this forum... The car has been listed on eBay before. Just like before, he is probably using eBay as a method to spread the word. The reserve price is probably high enough that nobody will win the auction, but he already has over 3,000 hits. Not a bad idea for advertisement but probably against eBay rules IF that is the reason why it is listed there. (notice there are a lot of "probably" and "if" words in this response.) :D

Imagine walking onto a used car lot and a salesperson approaches you and describes the car like in the eBay ad... Do you think that you would buy it?....

Loose nuts on that canuck!

This guys must be a nut-job with way too much free time. It's unfortunate that someone like this has to ruin it for dedicated Insight owners.

The Insight Rules & is still one of the most intelligent automobile on the market. :badgrin: Let Love Rule

Sorry for the punctuation, but unfortunatly what I have described is all true and for the most part are experiences shared by many other insighters even on this forum, Multiple cat failurs, o2 sensor failures, shody Honda service, IMA failures, etc etc. But please, feel free to read previous posts since I would bet money the second insight trekker vies this you can kiss it good bye :) [mod insert, send cash $$$ :p ]

Keep in mind, at the end of the day, im just another insight owner sharing his experience with the same right to do so as anyone else, negative or positive!

Cheers!

Just go to the bottom of http://www.spencerthelion.com/forums/index.php and see who joined in their idle time. Found out about my pet site because he was lurking at a site similar to IC and found the URL of my site. If he has pets, I hope he does not treat them like his car.... :shock:

I disagree. I read his problems, and most of them go back to a LOUSY DEALER who broke his O2/leanburn sensor and then failed to be honest about it (they claimed they did not break it). The dealer also damaged the stick shift sensor, which disabled autostop.

The dealer's refusal to fix their own accident led to other problems.

I know because I've faced this issue myself (old car). A dealer gave me a brand-new waterpump, which burst & dumped all my radiator fluid on the highway. That led to the engine getting hot & blowing its head gasket. The dealer refused to take responsibility for the bad water pump.

Looks to me to be not a sales ad, but rather a warranty claim or lawsuit settlement inducement...

While some may laugh at the suggestion, (and I can't speak for Canada) but here in the United States there are ways to economically punish the incompetent - you sue them in a court of competent jurisdiction.

If you can't afford an attorney, there are enough of them (even in Texas) who are willing (provided you have a strong enough case; i.e., it's up to you and YOU alone to keep good, accurate records) to act on your behalf and will charge a fee ONLY if they/YOU win.

That nonsense on eBay is probably sufficient, should Honda wish, be sufficent for Honda to hold eBay as well as the car owner liable for slander - but that's just my opinion.
