Looking For Cheap Insight
Few dings, few paint chips is great.

Dead IMA battery is good too.

Prefer 5 speed model.

Something that moves under it's own power is good.

Willing to drive / fly a bit if the price is right.

Budget of 1500 or so, hoping to get one on the road this summer instead of racking up miles on the wagon.

Aren't we all? :)

I keep seeing them but missing them by the time I see it.

Figured I would put this here and someone would respond.

$1500's kind of pricey. Most cheap insight goes for about two cents...

I know of a silver 5 speed with good crapes on both sides, about 180,000 miles and the second gear grind for $2,000. I think there's plenty leeway to get the price down because of the exterior damage. It's either in NY or the (Midwest?) Wisconsin area.

I found a nice treadmill from here.

Ill trade you my gen 2 with phev kit for your Subaru. :eek: I was actually looking for a full size sedan, about same blue book value like an impala, charger or such.

I think all the gen 1 are over priced for what you get.

brucey 04-22-2014 11:10 AM

Plan to keep the Sube. Just don't want to put ~20k miles on it this summer.

Figure the insight will pay for itself with summer road tripping in it.

John: Wow, already have a few good leads. Thanks!

Sheepdog: If it passes state inspection I don't care. Dents are fun, means I can drive into my friends cars when they're not moving at a stop light.

I still think that an Insight would make a great boat tail for a Subaru! :D

I used a site to set up Craigslist alerts, but the site went down.

Well that depends on the person some people I'm willing to give a piece of my mind for free.

Although I'm not sure how insightful it would be to them :D

If you are willing to give up the moves under its own power there is one in IA for around $1750, likely possible to get it for less, turns over won't start, could be anything under the sun but a replacement motor from an auto is relatively cheap so might be an option anyway.

brucey 04-26-2014 09:14 PM

How much we talking for a whole motor? 500 or 1500?

Superfuelgero 04-27-2014 09:13 PM

There's one near me for like 200 or 300. They have no value to anyone but an insight owner, so demand is lower than even the prius engines.

quietmpg 04-28-2014 06:00 PM

Found this one on

I bet you could get it for 2K

sheepdog 44 04-28-2014 06:45 PM

$1,500 obo, bad battery, 151,000 miles, A good steal. but 4 days ago.
