Continuing from the Changstar Saga post... A few hours after mentioning the first gen Insight, a somewhat local Insight popped up on craigslist. Everything looks great, 2002 with 83k never wrecked, paint in great shape, even some custom leather seats (only came with cloth) that look well made and in the style of the originals. Only problem is no manual = no lean burn mode for the best mpgs. The CVT can 'only' do about 50-55mpg not the 60-70 the manual can. Plus the manual would be more fun. https://tulsa.craigslist.org/cto/5239250242.html Still, I'm very interested if it's truly a grandma-driven car. It's priced a little high for the year, but if it's truly in amazing shape it is a good price. I sent him an email asking about recent maintenance and when the battery was replaced, as, having read up on InsightCentral forums, the battery pack is usually only good for about 10 years and this one is 14-15 years old. Never bought a car from a private individual before, and it's a 2hr drive just to see it. InsightCentral has a great post about what to look for when inspecting one of these cars I can print out and use as a checklist.
