#4714 of 4724 No 2011 Element? What About Standard Transmission?
Sep 02, 2010 (5:44 am)
I can't find any info on the Honda site re: a 2011 Element. Not sure what to make of that. Has it been discontinued? Or just absolutely no changes from 2010?
Also, our Edmunds site discusses a standard transmission on the 2010: "Every 2010 Honda Element is equipped with a ... five-speed manual transmission [as] standard.... ¶ EPA estimated fuel economy is ... 18/23/20 for manual-shift AWD models." Yet, I cannot find on the Honda site, any mention of any kind (2WD or AWD) of standard transmission for the 2010 Element.
Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks. —Thri

Per the 2010 CR Buying Guide the automatic is gone.

So, I'm just trying to verify that you meant to say the automatic is dead. I seek confirmation of your last statement since it directly contradicts the Honda site; i.e., honda.com implies the standard is no longer available. Yet, you say that CR says the automatic is no longer available.
Who to believe? Or did you mean to say "standard" when you typed "automatic?"

The ConsumerGuide Automotive review of the 2010 Element states, “The only engine is a 166-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that teams with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The manual transmission has been discontinued.” —Thri

Pardon me, I wrote it backwards, I meant to say the automatic is the only transmission available, the manual is gone. Sorry 'bout that.
#4720 of 4724 Air Filter
May 15, 2011 (2:21 pm)
I am looking for a new air filter. Problem is there are alot of them that show up to 06 Element, but nothing for 07 and on. Is there a differance between airfilter for the 06 and 07??? I wouldnt think there is but id hate to be wrong.

I was looking at that too for my 2010 Honda Element. It seems like a common theme that you lose the sub woofer in any installation of aftermarket radio. From what I have experienced, I wouldn't let that stop you from changing out the radio. The sub woofer isn't really a high quality unit and probably should be considered for an upgrade as well as the stereo.
