Question on possibly buying a 2001 Honda Insight Hybrid
Hey I finally found one for sale in my town and I know how hard these are to fine and I thought this would be best place to ask questions and get some answers. Anyways its a 2001 honda insight hybrid manual transmission around 150 thousand miles has custom leather seats and apparently the hybrid battery is bad but it gets about 48 mpg without it and I guess its turbo to which I wasnt aware they had that option on the hybrid. So my questions are what does a replacment battery cost? I thought I read on here somewhere theres a guy that you can send them to taht repairs them cheaper then buying a new one? Also what things do I want to look for to see that it still has and price there asking 2400 and apperently its been and a barn for 3 years and hes selling it for the owner. Im thinking 2400 is to high since the battery is bad but I dont know. Any help would be most appreciated.

Might have been already been swapped if it's a turbo.
Seems pricey for a car that's been sitting that long, has 150K on it and may be beyond bringing back the IMA functions in (if you're looking for good gas mileage). I'd pass it up

My son bought a nice looking fully functioning G1 Insight last year for 2200 bucks, they're out there if you look long enough
