I've given up on getting an "03 with a stick. Just can't find one in all of California. When do the "04s come out. The dealers have the booklets. All the dealers say no one wants them.. Well, I do! I've tested the Civic...Eh, and the Prius...That thing is like driving a minivan. It's my second choice if I can't get an Insight, but I WANT an Insight. Anyone know what's going on?
patience.... We hunted for our second Insight (also a 2003 manual trans) and no luck... and then one day our local dealer got one in that they didn't expect. Lucky! I also located one in Oregon and looked into buying it there... just an idea.
