2000 INSIGHT - manual odo 162k - $2850 --sold.

- SOLD - 2000 Honda Insight, 5 speed manual, silver, 162,000 miles, VIN: jhmze137xyt000801.

I havn't driven it since November.

$2850.

Bought a TDI Beetle, so the Insight is going. 1/23/1015

From November:
I rarely drive it, once every two months, not enough to keep the battery charged. I cycle to work and back. AMA light was on, but need to charge and drive it. i Got a grid charger last month. It passed emission testing a few weeks ago. Battery was replaced by Honda at around 100k. Clutch was replaced last year, but the guy didn't do a good job and it chatters now. Both drive shafts replaced. Tires are good except the rear left has a flat spot, My wife left the parking brake on and it froze, I tried to drive it and it skidded down the drive way.. Has a small crack in the windshield behind the rear view mirror, not noticeable. (too aggressive in removing a foot of snow last winter). EGR passages need to be cleaned out. I have a belly pan for it, not currently mounted. I had it on Cregs list but got too many crazies replying. It has only let me down twice, once the front axle snapped in the hospital parking lot driving my wife home from surgery and two, my wife was driving son home from college and in the middle of nowhere and everything went dead on the interstate, battery was dead and all it needed was a jump start and was fine after that. Ground wires have been replaced. All in all its a small fragile car and parts are hard to find, the AMA is another maintenance item, it does get amazing gas mileage though. It handles like a go cart, fine on the freeway, but no cruse control. A little weak if there is a strong head wind going up a viaduct. More drivers tend to cut and turn in front of the small car. If I drive it, I have the headlights on. I am not bent on selling it, don't want to go through the hassles of showing it, but it's just sitting in the driveway.



The belly pan is currently off the car.:



The tail box is just placed for the picture, it fits my Saturn.

This has to be some kind of scam, who in there right mind would by a two seat insight when they are adopting a child.

Quote:
would like to make an offer on your 2000 Honda Insight.



My wife and I are looking for a fuel-efficient vehicle, and the Honda Insight is the best one. We are in the process of adopting (Dan & Agniya Are Adopting! - Home) and have been matched with a birth mom in Colorado, so we will be making several trips between Springfield, MO and Denver, CO between now and July. And I know that I will need to make a couple trips down to FL because my Dad’s health is starting to go, and I know of at least one trip to TX that I will need to do.



So with all our extra income going toward our adoption expenses, I am able to offer you $1433 for your used Insight, subject to an inspection at a local garage. It is not a low-ball offer, but rather what I am able to afford. I would be able to come up to Lemont next week Tuesday or Wednesday (Nov 18/19) to inspect and pick it up.



To give you more understanding on my offer, I have budgeted $2000 for a used Insight, to include any inspections, getting the car registered in MO, fuel expenses to pick up the car and a reserve to cover any minor repairs that may be needed. If you vehicle is in good condition, as you say in your post, then there should be little to no repairs needed. I would be happy to send you a check, after the car is registered and any repairs made, for any remaining balance from my budget.



FYI, here are the expenses that I am accounting for:

$ 50 Local inspection, to confirm purchase

$ 12 MO state inspection

$109 MO registration

$196 Gas up and down for my car and return trip for the Insight (495 miles to your location)

$200 Reserve for minor repairs (if none are needed, some or all of this amount can go back to you)



How are the tires?

How is the windshield?

Is the IMA battery pack fully charging?

Is there any rust issues?

Anything that may need repair?

Do you have any more photos, such as a walk around form different angles, the inside, under the hood, engine and back hatch, tire detail…



Thank you so much for considering my offer and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

No, as a matter of fact, hell no. There are so, so many red flags in that post it's not even funny. Not to mention your car is worth more then that.

Testing the waters?

That e-mail is bizarre, yes, extremely specific. Sometimes people use the truth to hide a lie.

*fixed*

My wife and I are looking for a fuel-efficient vehicle, and the *your car here* is the best one. We are in the process of *scamming*(Dan & Agniya Are *scamming*! - Home) and have been matched with a *potential sucker on Craigslist*, so we will be making several trips between Springfield, MO and Denver, CO between now and July. And I know that I will need to make a couple trips down to FL because my *fictitious* Dad’s health is starting to go, and I know of at least one trip to TX that I will need to do.
So with all our extra income going toward our *scamming* expenses, I am able to offer you $*lowball offer* for your used *your car here*, subject to an inspection at a local garage. It is not a low-ball offer, but rather what I am able to *reasonably scam*. I would be able to come up to *your town here* next week Tuesday or Wednesday (Nov 18/19) to inspect and *steal it*.
To give you more understanding on my offer, I have budgeted $*lowball budget* for a used *your car here*, to include any inspections, getting the car registered in MO, fuel expenses to pick up the car and a reserve to cover any minor repairs that may be needed. If you vehicle is in good condition, as you say in your post, then there should be little to no repairs needed. I would be happy to send you a check *from my account at the National Bank of Nigeria*, after the car is registered and any repairs made, for any remaining balance from my budget.
