Hi JJ -
Welcome to the forum.

  • are you the first owner?
  • Have you Always used Honda original fluid?
  • Has the E been serviced regularly?
What symptoms are you experiencing?

Overall, the Element seems to have a relatively bulletproof drivetrain as it's the same as the CRV, but like anything else with moving parts it does break, and faster if not properly cared for.

Also, a search using the word "Transmission" yielded some great results. Sit back, grab a cold one, and enjoy.
I own 2 2004 elements. Both had transmission slipping in 3rd gear and then they died. 2 for 2 is 100 percent failure to this customer!

At how many miles did they fail? How often did you change your fluid?
