Just had a dealer call me , he has an AWD EXS with automatic tranny in the color I want for $19,953 which includes the destination charges & air bags. Should I keep shopping?

STOP SHOPPING! BUY NOW!

I wrote that in caps to get your attention. Not because I'm yelling. Anyway, you'll be stealing an E at that price, but you also might want to investigate two things first:

#1 Is this a new vehicle with just a few miles on it, or was this vehicle returned to the dealer by an intended owner after his financing fell through and he had put LOTS of miles on it?
#2 Regardless of #1, is there anything wrong with the vehicle?.......thoroughly check it out!!!!!!!

FYI, my vehicle is outlined in my signature line. It stickered for $21,310.00. We paid $20,022.00 for it after my wife's employee discount. So, if you are getting a brand new E at a price less than that of an employee, AND getting side airbags on top of that awesome price, I'm VERY jealous!!!!

Buy it. That price is $19 BELOW invoice. The dealer is still making about $600 in the holdback, so you could try lower but I doubt that you would get it (typically, the holdback goes only to the dealership, not to any of the salesman, managers, etc.). Also, with the Element as one of the fastest selling cars now, it won't be there very long.

Ummmmm.....RUN....don't walk to that dealer and sign on the bottom line and start enjoying your new E!!!!

Seriously....that is a great deal....I would buy at that price....it is better than what I paid and I felt that I got a good deal!

Thanks all for the replys. I definetly will check it out. As far as I know it is a new one, I hope he (the salesman) wouldn't mislead me. This of course is with no dealer options which after belonging to this web site makes me believe I don't need then to charge me an arm and a leg for installation costs, I'm pretty handy. I will check out the web sites you guys recomended & buy my stuff there. Don't need to finance the options. Can add as I get more money!! Thanks again!

That is the way to go....we bought our E almost 3 months ago with no extras.....and over the course of the last 3 months we have added.....carpets to the cargo area, Honda Cargo organizer, Steel Horse Console, Mud Flaps, Roof Rack, Remote Keyless Entry and Alarm, Steering Wheel Cover, Side steps, Chrome Exhaust Tip, and multi-colored bungee! I never thought I would ever spend so much on car goodies! But with the E it is like a disease.....what is it they say about tatoos....once you have one you just want another....well that is kinda how flair is for your E....one piece, then another, and another....and then before you know it your E is fully Eccessorized!

Dont' mention tattos! My right arm upper arm is covered. You are so right, if I didn't get married & have kids, it would've been full sleeves for me! But I do have that disease with my Harley, now my wife is gonna have it with the E (we hope)! I'll be very supportive, after all, its for the entire family!!!
