Just picked up a first gen Insight
« on: Jun 02, 2020, 06:43:43 am »
I just picked up one with 180K on it. I always wanted one but they were a bit expensive to me for their age, but one came up cheap so I snagged it just a couple nights ago. And to my surprise people who track them have been saying the CVT has been quicker for them since they feel the gearing for manual sucks. Which is surprising, since I was bummed that this one was a CVT till I read that. Has a bunch of a little quirks, but the body is straight, looking forward to getting the suspension sorted, but I just picked up new struts/shocks,Dealer only :ohmy: Did some basic service on it.

The little 3 cylinder is comical, and even has pink parts from Honda

Oh sh*t! I noticed a bot did the same thing with one of John Rood's posts. Confused the hell out of me too.

For reals, but I guess it doesn't really cost them anything.

If you can, edit his post to remove the link at the bottom. Or send it to a rickroll.
