  • What's this 2003 GX worth?

    76,000 miles and looks pretty clean. Assuming original tank. Haven't had a CNG car in nearly 10 years so are these still popular? Would buy to flip. Are the tanks still only rated for 15 years? Can they be re certified? Is it dangerous to drive after 15 years?

    Tanks were rated for 15 years and cannot be recertified. New replacement tanks have 20 yr life (about $4000 installed).

    Civic GXs with CVT trans sold on eBay, GovDeals or PublicSurplus in last year. Column 1 = # years left on tank when sold. YYMMDD:

      The tank probably expires this year, as Honda put in 15 year tanks. It is probably safe for many more years as with 76k miles there haven't been too many refueling cycles relative to other 15 year vehicles with 200,000+ miles and safely on the road. But I wouldn't risk it. And the vehicle is probably worth $1,000 or so as the CVT transmissions on years 2001-2004 were junk.

        Thought I could get it for $700-$800 last week but stupid buyer bid it to $1600, about $1750 with fees. He had no idea it was CNG because it's back for sale this week. I wish I could have seen his face when he went to a gas station to fill up with gasoline and opened the fuel door.

          What's wrong with the CVT? Had many Honda Insights of that era with over 200,000 mile CVTs running fine.

            Don't know about your good fortune with the Insight, but the Civic GX's in those years were rife with CVT problems. One of our most-commented posts in the history of this forum deals with this subject:
