2007 EX 2WD Auto 121K miles for $2350. Dog damaged mess. I stripped the interior to the metal and wires to get rid of the hair and crud. Had to replace the rear seat belts that were chewed through. Also replaced passenger seat belt and complete driver's seat. Passenger window was zip tied shut. Replaced regulator and driver's door switch to get it working. Air conditioning wasn't working but replacing the relay fixed it. Have a front suspension noise I haven't solved yet. Replaced a bad compliance bushing and all three transmission mounts which were scary shot. Love driving it. Has a few minor body blemishes.

I just bought a 2006 EX-P with AWD. 130K miles. Rebuilt title. OTD for $5K. Interior and exterior are both very clean. This will be my daughters first car and she is very excited.

Finally found one!

VERY happy to have purchased a one-owner 2004 EX 4x4 manual transmission.

Has new tires and body/interior condition is excellent~!

Paid 5k and it needs the following:rear rotors and brake pads, and the left front CV axle clicks if you accelerate into a left turn. I already did the brakes/rotors (EASY to work on!!). I plan on ordering all four cv axles (90 each) and having them installed (was quoted $571 labor for all four). Hard to find a manual, I was lucky to stumble across this one on a small lot before it had been advertised..it was there for exactly 2 days.

Bought a 2004 AWD with 96K....

for $5,500. Needed some very minor repairs so I now have about $5,800 into it. Actually bought it in June and it now has 104k. My wife and daughter love it...handles great in the slop here in Michigan. Want to get another JUST like it! Shoot me an email if you know of anything similar. [email protected]

Bought a one owner, meticulously maintained 2007 SC. 108k miles. $7000
All (37) services were done by Honda dealers. Brand new Michelin Premier tires, 4 new rotors and pads, new serpentine belt, brake and transmission fluid flush. Newer battery and A/C recharge. Runs great, drives like the 2011 I had bought new. The SC seems more quiet and a bit quicker.

Sounds like you did great dano100. That price is well under the asking price for most of the SC's that are up for sale around here!

The only thing you may want to look into (if it wasn't done already) at 108K miles is a valve adjustment.

Show us some pictures when you get a chance.

My partner and I just got a 2003 AWD Silver toaster with 200k miles for $4,000.
Came with a Yakima roof rack, a platform, and a folder of service records going all the way back to the original window sticker from the dealer. We even have the original Element stickers that came in the book.

Welcome ryanisntcreative.

It sounds like you did very well! In Elementland, anything under 100K is low, low miles!

Please show us some pictures of your new Element when you get a chance.

Here she is!



Each side has a sizeable dent - one on the driver's side suicide door, and another on the front passenger door. The price of parking the car in NYC for 13 years, I guess.

The rust really isn't too bad, at least from what I can tell. Since purchasing it at the end of April, I have:
* sourced a Yakima round bar rack, mostly from ebay and craigslist (now I need to sell the landing pads that came with it that fit a CRV)
* installed a Kenwood stereo deck from crutchfield.com (now I have the OEM deck to sell)
* installed the storage arm rest (and have to sell the original one)
* bought a cabana in hopefully mint condition on ebay (waiting for it in the mail)
* installed the Sachs SG225002 Lift Supports for the hatch (thinking about going with the StrongArm 4351 instead)


I am in search of an OEM skylight shade, and probably some carpets and/or all-weather mats. I will probably also make a set of Reflectix window coverings for camping as well.
