I have owned a 2003 Element for about 10 years and it has been absolutely wonderful until this past year. I have had one problem after the other. The biggest issue is trouble starting the car. My local dealership replaced the starter twice and the car is still struggling to start at times. They said something seems to be draining the battery, but can't figure out what. I am also having trouble with opening the doors with my key. Could this be related? The dealership is trying get me to trade my car in, but I really love my element!
