Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

230,000 miles and still going strong
by Insight owner from Temecula, Ca | January 14, 2011
We own a 2000 insight and have over 230,000 miles on it. We do our 7500 mile services and the only thing we have had to do so far on this car are brakes and tires. Engine, Battery, Tranny etc..all still going strong. The down side is no power at all. Great car for around town, but personally I do like to be able to go at least 75 mph up hills on the freeway and this little car just doesn't have the power, but it has been the most inexpensive car we have owned and totally dependable.
