  2. FS: 03 Manual AWD EX 240k miles in CA

    Trading Post
    So hard to part ways with my Element. Original owner, purchased off the lot in 2004. If I knew how to maintain it, I would keep it forever.

    First of all, hello! I've been poking around these forums for the past week or so while I've been looking at (possibly) my first Element. I've wanted an Element for a long time, and my wife and I are looking to get a decently-priced vehicle in order to get rid of our Jeep (which has ended up...

    Problems & Issues
    My 2005 Element has 186,600 miles on it and I'm starting to have a lot of problems. I thought it was the transmission but AAMCO doesn't think so. They are getting a P2646 code which is the same code that caused the dealership to replace the VTEC Oil Pressure Switch two times previously, the...
