  1. Service recommendations in Oakland/East Bay CA?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi there, Element owners! I'm relatively new to the EOC, having just purchased my 2005 Element EX this month (AUG '17).

  3. "Minor" service at the dealer

    Maintenance and Service

    Problems & Issues
    I know I have seen it before here on the forums but has anyone else had a problem with using your turn signal and the high beams coming on by mistake?
