Sad to see her go. FS: 2005 Honda Insight MT (OH)

I'm selling my beloved Insight. Unfortunately, as we plan for little ones, two two seaters isn't practical and I need to start transitioning to something different. Obviously, the Insight drew the short straw



The floor mat isn't hiding a heel hole, it's there to prevent it. If you keep using it, know it can scoot forward and needs a little tug back. It doesn't impeded pedal function when it slides forward, but I like it back all the way.

Rear wheel skirt. Honda lost one screw, and I lost the other.

Spare tire is a donut, I still have the old ones if you care to keep a back up. Obviously not for road use. New RE92s and alignment on the car.

Factory Insight bag

There is a stain on the back.

2000 Manual and warranty book.

Extra parts I've acquired over the years.

I'm located near Sandusky, Ohio. I thought the IMA was going, so transitioned the vehicle through the unplug method to gas only. Was still having trouble, and thought the battery leads could be the culprit- refreshed those. What could it be??? Well, my 18 month old regular battery apparently was faulty! Free replacement, and she is back to 100%. I have not reattached the IMA, nor do I plan to. She is running swimmingly on petrol only.

All the locks are the same and functioning for the keys. Rear hatch button works, rear wiper works (but could use a new one). There aren't any of the common failures I can think of, like transmission grinding. She is smooth. Glovebox works, same key. I know she isn't perfect, but that is why she isn't priced to make a profit. Her parts being stripped and sold is worth 2,000, and she runs great.

Looking at pricing, I won't take less than $2,000. I didn't realize how much they are worth!
