I have a 2000 Insight for sale, asking $2900 168k miles. It'll probably end up on EBay, but I'm posting it here first. I know the price is kinda high for this car's condition; there is a bit of flexibility. Clean title in my name in hand.


I have more photos available and in higher quality than the attached ones here or the ones in the CL listing.

Most info is in the CL listing, but y'all know what Insights are so I'll post more detailed stuff here. There are like 24 photos on the CL ad but I can take more if requested.

- 12v battery is from 2017
- One of the ground straps was broken I replaced it with a new one from Honda
- This car had the driver's side wet seatbelt leak (common to G1 Insights) but I fixed it with silicone. I replaced the tabs holding the trim piece with new ones from Honda.
- Trunk latch did not work, I repaired the actuator with the 3d printed repair piece.
- IMA is on last legs, it should be bypassed, I'm just not sure of the legality of doing that and then selling the car. I just don't want to be held liable for something. I know how to do the bypass it isn't hard.
- One of the photos in the CL ad has a photo of the clutch switch I added, keeping it on most of the time will prolong the time before the IMA light turns on.
- I have grid charged the battery, and it's got a harness that's specific to my home-built grid charger. I made an adapter for it that works with the Prolong grid chargers if you have one of those, or if you were interested I could sell my grid charger.
- Passed emissions in February
- Enters lean burn easily
- No EGR-related herky-jerky problem in lean burn or under acceleration
- Transmission is QUIET
- Exterior looks really really good

- Has RE92s but needs new tires pretty soon
- There's a photo in CL ad of where prev owner backed into something
- Has factory-installed audio system (it sucks)
- Probably due for TX fluid change

Price seems fine to me, but then again I'm biased. Good luck! Please link your ebay thread if you end up going that route.

Baby Prius for $1,700 in Phoenix.

Is there any chance this is legitimate? https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/c...842144525.html

No chance. They dropped a zero or something, which would be a bit too expensive.

At that price something's got to be wrong with it. Most C's of that generation range from $6k-$11k depending on condition and mileage.

Ad seems to have been taken down by the site, as of yesterday. Something was wrong with it!


See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
