The 740Li is no more, i bought it for $4,000... got $8,000

and bought a great daily driver

its a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid. Clean Title. 1-owner. 239k miles. i paid $1,000. it has a New IMA battery. So I am good there!

the owner was a woman. She took it to the dealer for all the hybrid stuff and to a very reputable mechanic for all the maintenance. I have all the records and even the window sticker.

Honda goodwilled 90% of the battery replacement for her because the car was well taken cared with a lot of maintenance records from the dealer.

Here I was thinking you were going to buy the Aston Martin I recently posted up :rofl:

That's awesome that you made some money on the 740. And I'm all for the hybrid! I love my Camry Hybrid but I paid 30 times as much as you got yours for AND you get better mileage :(

Oh and I love all your beaters, but get going on a replacement for the 745!

I'm told the AccessOK sticker is worth at least twice what you paid for the car.

One thing bothers me. When I was in the market for one of these (back when they were new), they didn't come with a sunroof. I'm not sure if that was a 2002 or 2003 model, but it had something to do with the wiring for the batteries. Maybe I'm mis-remembering, but I hope that's not an aftermarket sunroof.

doesnt look like the sunroof is OEM, but i dont know :dunno:

looks like it was a dealer installed option

BUT it was since day 1 and 0 miles. now its almost 10 years later and it has 239k miles and no problems.

But the car is awesome!

Damn you. I want a civic hybrid, though I'm gonna get a manual. Those stickers are no longer good. How did you get such a good deal? It's probably worth 3 or 4k.
