#3266 of 4724 Just Got My Element
May 18, 2004 (8:02 pm)
Hi, I am new here, but have been lurking around for a long time, trying to do my studying and research. Finally bought my Element today. 2004 EX 4WD with side air and EX Sports Package for $21,700. Got it in the best dealer in Nashville, TN - CREST Honda. I love it. Havent driven it much juts the drive from the dealership to my house and it was awesome! Will test it this weekend on our drive home to Illinois, I have no doubt it will do good. I thank everyone in thsi forum for their helpful insights on the element especially the user witht he Brazil logo . It helped me a lot in my research and in my getting a good deal from the dealer. I hope I will enjoy this car the same everyone here is!!!!!

I also just bought an E. Honda of Lisle is where I purchased it. Could have gotten $500 below invoice incl destination at Valley Honda in Aurora and Schaumburg Honda in Schaumburg. Neither had a 5 speed EX 4WD E with side air in stock. Lisle gave me the most for my trade.
#3268 of 4724 Element Cleaning

Can anyone give me some advice for an outside cleaner? Especially on the gray plastic. They will eventually turn into a whitish color if not treated. I would appreciate any suggestions.

#3272 of 4724 Air Conditioning Power?
May 20, 2004 (2:20 pm)
Is the A/C strong enough to cool the interior quickly in very hot weather?

I would say so. During some of the random hot days a few weeks back in the Boston area, the Element was extrememly HOT inside after baking in the sun for several hours. Within maybe 2 minutes, I was freezing. The fan has something like 12 (literally) speeds, from very low, through very, very high. The MAX A/C Setting automatically selects A/C to the front vents, automatically switches on "recirculate" for maximum cooling power. All you have to do is crank the fan to the 12th position and enjoy a snow cone !!!!
