Hello all. I have been researching the Element for the past month or so and pulled the trigger on a 2003 Ex with 140k miles. Seller description was not exactly accurate but worked out a price and took my chances anyway. Picked up in San Diego and immediately headed home to Arizona which is about 3 hours. Rattles like a 90's Civic but it made it without any issues. Decent power and handling, smooth shifting and comfortable ride. Needs TLC and am excited about restoring and researching topics for ideas and parts on this forum. I really like the space and utility of the car and am surprisingly enjoying the automatic transmission as I am a die-hard manual driver. It will make a great addition to the lineup and am excited to see what will become of it.
