WTB: Honda Insight

howdy,
my hubby and I are looking to buy a Honda Insight
we are located near Ann Arbor, Michigan but are willing to drive 200+ miles. Also we will be heading down to Atlanta the end of June so we will be happy to stop anywhere along I-75.
thanks!

America's most wanted: The Honda Insight... may the Lord be with you! If you can't find one, i'd recommend a crx hf as an alternative. Insights are getting real tough to find now-a-days.

and to make it more difficult, we want a manual transmission!
I myself have begun the eternal search for a vx, but since my hubby is giving up a audii TT for this car, he wants something a bit fancier (He drove a del sol for a good 8 years...)

Here is my version of GasSavers.org's Most wanted list:

And here is my version of the Hardest to find models of Cars:
Geo Metro XFi
Honda CRX HF (one that is bone stock)
Honda Civic VX (one that is bone stock)
Honda Insight
Toyota Prius (not real hard to find, just expensive)

Good luck on your Quest for Insight! (I like to play on words)

the insights are out there, we test drove one at a dealer in Ann Arbor yesterday which had been very well taken care of (and of course was sold the second it hit the lot) and then headed down to ohio to see one.
The ohio one wasn't as well taken care of, but the (chrysler) dealer seemed flexible and they were only asking 11,500 for a 2000 with 53K on it!
But we decided to be a bit picky.
But if anyone else in the ohio area wants an insight:

The CVT's are easier to find than the 5spds IMO. The 5spds produce the phenominal mileage.

Expect to pay a premium. Mine sold a little over a month ago and went for quite a bit over bluebook. There were a few variables as to why mine went for so much money but it was on eBay and if I wouldn't of stopped the auction early and sell it to a nice gentleman it would of gone for a lot more than bluebook - I'm talking like $3000 over bluebook. I was scared if someone bought it for that much they'd expect an absolute perfect car. It had some very minor issues, but that really did scare me. I think the new owner is a lurker here, great guy who i staking car of it. Once you get one, be prepared to actually get emotionally attached to an inanimate object. Weird.

that's nothing new, I think my hubby loves all his cars...everyone in a different way plus he's always really like the insight
we are going to hold out for the 5 spd, so I guess we'll see how it goes!
