element

Wish I knew about these sooner because of the colors....... :-(
I purchased one from a dealership in Ohio who told he couldn't find any except the rust color 5 speed and dealerships in Michigan couldn't find any at all ...:-( Also, he told me that this is a 2010 manual which is rare but I think it's a 2009 retagged a 2010 ... I guess he made his money from the sale........ Now I know why I hate dealerships :-(

Where is it LEGAL to "retag" a car for the next model year? You mean you got a 2010 licence tag?

You can't change the model year of a car....the VIN will tell you....the Window sticker will tell you... If Honda built that Element as a 2009 then it will always be a 2009.

The price you pay 'should' tell you.

Look at the 10th digit of the VIN number.

9=2009

A=2010
