We’ll after searching for a few months I have finally picked up my first E! Finding a 5 speed AWD proved to be a challenge but here she is! 2003 EX AWD 108k Miles. Interior is very clean and body is straight. Previous owner just put on new shocks, struts, and ball joints. even managed to get just over 25 mpg on the 3 hour drive home. So far love it but fear I may be looking at new axles up front =( has a pretty good shimmy on acceleration between 45-60 mph. but for what I paid and what i have seen them going for hope it still turns out to be a good deal. black wasn't my first choice but plan in making it my own had hope to have it for years to come!

Looks great, I like the six spoke alloy rims, are those from a later year Element or a Pilot?

You can try Trakmotive CVs Axles if you dont want to buy OEM. I got a CV for the front drivers side for $99 Canadian, they are new not rebuilds, work and fit great. Have had them on other cars before too.

Thanks for the tip ! Yeah I checked out the price of the factory ones and they’re extremely high but then at the same time I heard you have to be careful with aftermarket… Im going to have the mechanic take a look and go from there:)
