#165 of 187 2000 Insight price offered me by dealer
Jun 05, 2007 (11:56 am)
I have a 2000 Insight that I need to sell so I can move overseas. It only has 49k miles on it and a friend recommended CarMax as a place to give a good deal. Maybe on a newer car they make good offers, but I was told 3k to "take it off my hands". So how do you feel about that offer, CJ? Um, unimpressed!
My local Honda dealer offered 5k as is (a tire stripped off some rubber and did minor damage to the rear bumper.
With gas at about $3.40 in Southern California and my mileage at 57MPG despite driving in mixed traffic, I think they can do better.
What do y'all think?

Hey there CJ,
I think the dealers really could do better. I am in the market for an Insight and might be interested in yours. Shoot me and email at divxprocodec at(sign) hotmail.com with some pics and info and maybe we could work something out. If not, best of luck getting fair value out of it mate.

That event happened long ago unless some dealer has ratholed one for some dumb reason.

Are you still selling the car and where are you located?

just a question to get another insight forum started. what are your thoughts about the reliability of Honda, and the Honda Insight. The Insight has been out since 12/1999 as a 2000 model year car. what are general concerns/questions.
Let me remind you, I do sell these cars and would be glad to field questions but more important than that is I really want to see what people are saying about their lives with the Insight, and others future plans.
Thanks for the opinions.
