  1. Problems & Issues
    Hi all, new owner of a 2003 Element EX AWD. I got it inspected prior to buying to know what repairs to expect. I'm looking into buying parts and the only thing I can't find on Rockauto and such is an inner CV boot for the rear driver side. It's busted and leaking grease and I should replace...
