2006_MonteBlue, I test drove your old 06 at Nalley Toyota of Roswell, GA a few days ago and was told the Insight and another car together were taken in as a trade for another vehicle. They couldn’t answer or provide documents on when and who changed the IMA. Or why it didn’t have the original Honda windshield or hood even though it had the original front bumper and VIN numbers on all other panels. Cargo area net was also missing. The IMA was force charging during acceleration. Or why the tires were 11 years old. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

You know, it’s not possible for a dealership to school all sales personnel on every used car on the lot. You won’t get an accurate picture of this car because, no offense to Nalley, they have no reason to appreciate it nor are they obligated to care about its place in history.

This car had been posted here two years? All who contacted me were either curious, nostalgically interested, and/or standing on the precipice with plane tickets in hand. I felt the end price was fair and more than fair when the IMA batt was replaced; lookers thought otherwise and low-offered me accordingly. That’s not a criticism; that’s just the way buying/selling works.

I know nothing about a new hood/windscreen. If the first owner had an accident, I know nothing about that either — and I did ask. I did tell Nalley that it was all original because that was my belief. From May 2011 to May 2018, this car has been maintained and garaged for 7 years on my watch.

If I sound a tad annoyed, it’s because I can’t tell whether your post is ‘calling me out’ as untruthful or implying the car isn’t as I described in my first post. You’ve driven it; you decide. It’s my hope you can negotiate with Nalley to your satisfaction.

2006_MonteBlue, I re-read your first post again. My apologies if my questions offended you. That was not my intent. The car is as you had described in your first post and it is the nicest/cleanest original one I had seen and driven. No scratches or dings or anything and your end price was fair. I only wished I had known about yours before buying my red 05 from Columbia Honda in MO. The original owner paid Honda $2,240 to replace the IMA on 04/16/14, same part numbers as yours. As you had said the salesman didn’t know anything about the car or why the IMA was acting the way it did. Your explanation makes perfect sense. I only drove it for 10 minutes on their city streets test drive loop around the dealership. As a matter of fact, I spoke to my salesman last evening trying to work out a price in regards to the tires. I only looked at the right front tire and took a picture of the sidewall to determine the manufacturer’s date; JCD5107 translates to week 51, 2007. They all look barely used and it is just the age of the tires that concerns me as I told the salesman.

My guess about the replaced hood and windshield is that the original Saint Louis owner must have not secured the hood well enough and it had unlatched on the freeway at speed breaking the windshield and bending the hood. Paint is a perfect match as you had said.
