Reviews on Cat Clark’s Autos & Trucks

My Insight is low-slung and very quiet - sometimes TOO much so. It seems to be invisible to larger vehicles on the road. Case in point: Recently I was sideswiped by an RV and my insurance company estimated it to be a total loss (repair estimates ran over $3500). I had Larry look at it. He said he could fix it for less than HALF the cost. And he did, plus he detailed the car, inside and out! Now my 16 year old car looks brand new. Thank you, Larry! I'll be driving with my lights on from now on.

Clark has died and there is a new owner who is great. Much cheaper than going to Honda. I go there any time I have a problem and they always fix it or I schedule an appointment. I have two insights and they have been running for years without any major problems. I average 48 MPG. They do not have the best ride but I spend very little on gas.

I'm going to start by saying that Cat Clark is selling exactly what I'm buying.  Hence the positive review.  If you're looking for something that he doesn't do, then you don't have much reason to patronize his establishment and he doesn't have much reason to offer you service.  He's rather eccentric and doesn't seem to give a shit what you think about him.  That to me seems to explain the negative reviews here.

I wanted a cheap, reliable, used hybrid compact.  My internet research led me to Cat Clark's small shop and his obsession with the Honda Insight.  He and his small team of mechanics buy wrecked Insights from insurance companies, rebuild them, and then sell a few dozen per year.  That's his business model.  It's not about to get him the capital to buy any prime real estate on the Brand Boulevard of Cars, but it keeps his shop open where he makes a living tinkering with the cars he loves.

Cat could have stopped ten minutes into his half-hour lecture on what makes the Insight so awesome and just sold me the damn car, but he didn't, and I was glad to hear it and glad to know I was dealing with someone who really knows and cares about what he's doing.

I got a gorgeous red 2000 Insight from him for $4500.  I love, love, LOVE this car!  It drives better and has better mpg than the used 1997 Civic for which some lamestream dealership squeezed $20K out of me ten years ago.  I'm so environmental, my car's a *recycled* hybrid.  AND it looks fucking bad-ass!  Random strangers on the street give me compliments for my 14-year-old salvage job.

I understand.  I'm weird.  I don't want the same things most people want when they're buying cars.  If you want to overpay for a car with all the bells and whistles that will promptly disintegrate at the moment the automakers' profit margins dictate that you need to buy another one, then you'll probably be disappointed.  But if you're anything like me, you just might thank your lucky stars that a place like this exists.

A few weeks later, and the window in the door he installed on my car no longer works. Yes, it was a used door and it had no warranty, but a few weeks seems, well, lame. Under normal circumstances I'd contact him and try to work something out. I'd expect that he would care that this occurred. But under these circumstances, I know that's not the case. He will not care. He will be a jerk. So I am on my own with it now. Wish I had gone somewhere else.

Clark is the man who owns and sells one of the only used first generation Honda Insights.  He is so knowledgeable about Insights and gave us a lesson. It would've been a great car-buying experience.  Buyer beware- most of his cars are salvaged. You'll just have to ask him. His prices are great and he offered us financing if needed.  He disclosed to us that he offers discounted and timely maintenance for customers who purchase through him only.  He does not deal with outside customers. Rightfully so. He is good at what he does and I wish that he had a clean title car at the time we were planning to purchase.

I called Cat Clark's Autos & Trucks to schedule a time to bring in my newly purchased 2001 generation 1 Honda Insight. Cat Clarck said it was too bad I didn't buy my Insight from him and that he was no longer accepting new customers that did not buy their Insight from him. Then he said goodbye and immediately hung up (maybe I got an 'okay' in there somewhere).

The business is more of a used car dealership with a shop reserved for existing customers. I didn't get yelled at but it was a bizarre experience. How many shops refuse your business? Maybe there is a valid reason to limit his customer base, but he did not take the time to explain the loss of my business.

If you have a 2-door Honda Insight, this guy knows his stuff. Absolutely specializes in it. And he's cheap, but it's cash only. He is crazy about those cars.

But he is also just plain crazy. I was talking on the phone when they finished the car. He starts yelling and ranting that I'm holding him up and he's been waiting for 10 minutes. I calmly said he didn't have to speak to me that way and I had no idea he was waiting.

He yelled more and told me he didn't want my money, to get out and never come back. I said he should take the money but he refused. So I left the money there and drove away.
