Driven 189,600 km = 118k miles
Manual transmission
Exterior color: Black Interior color: Black

Seller's description

2014 Mitsubishi Mirage manual needing some love. The Clutch would be to change soon, and the car has a few pucks and grafignes (see pictures). Comes with a set of mags and summer tires and a set of rims with winter tires. Electric windows, air conditioning, heated benches. Battery, brakes, and discs were changed early summer. Maintenance has always been done regularly. This is a very economical little car for gasoline! We are in Piedmont.

Found on FB marketplace... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...62757861321332


This one's about 3 hours away from me. Not gonna do it.

I bet the owners don't know the Mirage has an old-school clutch cable. It might just need an adjustment.

2001 manual Honda Insight for $1,400 in Tucson with 349,000 miles!

Quote:
349,000 miles and still runs fine
Gas/electric hybrid
2 seats
Big battery replaced in 2018 (the last battery lasted 7 years)
5 speed manual transmission
3 cylinder, 1.0 liter engine
Several paint chips and other cosmetic damage
Everything works except the aftermarket cruise control
Tires are 2 years old
Car has been well maintained since new
KBB value = $1448
Sale price = $1400 firm
JHMZE13581T001059 if anyone wants to check.

I have always criticized Tucson. I probably always will, but I was surprised how much I liked it when I was down visiting a beautiful girl.

Then again I was happy.



Of course, that did not last very long.

I had looked forward to seeing more of Tucson and it was funny how much the lady at O'Reilly's talked to me the last time that I showed up--without the girl.

Our O'Reilly's girls aren't that cute and friendly!

However, my sister is allegedly bringing my niece, who adores me, and my nephews. I would be preparing for their visit right now if I wasn't distracted by this beautiful girl in Tucson!

If you don't take that one home, then something is wrong.

OTOH red would be a deal killer to me.

+1 to this.

Then you could sell the battery to recover half the cost of the car and eliminate 90% of what goes wrong with Insights.

Why not both? Logistics? Their disapproval?

The Insight sold. Oh well. There is another red one for sale in Tucson. It has 197,000 miles and the owner is asking $1,400, but it is autotragic.

You will be happy to know that my family appeared to enjoy their visit.
