#382 of 750 DOES THE 05 EX COME WITH ALARM???
May 22, 2005 (2:03 pm)
I have been internet shopping and lowest price 2005 Black Element EX 4wd Automatic.
so far the lowest price i got was $20,485.00 that includes Destination charges($515.00)
at Mt. Kisco honda, here in New York.
The Tax, doc, and dmv fees are not included. IM sure the Tax is going to be like $1,600.00. tax here in NY is a killer!
Anyways that price i got from them im going to show it to my Local Dealer and see if they could beat it and get a better price, which im sure they will.
I just have a Question for you all...... Does the 05 E , EX come with the alarm?? if not im going to haggle for that too. and later on ill buy the accessories online either from ebay or handa-accessories.com

Hey, where in the US are you? I am just starting to haggle and don't know where to go. I was offered an LX 2 AWD for what you paid out the door. YUCK!

I'm a happy camper with my new Rallye Red EX 2WD manual. Couldn't be happier. Best car buying experience of my life with the folks at Woodland Hills Honda in CA. Price before taxes and license $18300. Never want to park it.

Shopped on internet and used Sam's Club, Costco and CarsDirect. First 2 were a waste , CarsDirect led me to local dealer who agreed over phone to Carsdirect price, which was invoice plus destination plus dealer doc fee of $499. I refused and would buy at $20000 plus tax and title and 1.9% finance rate, it took him 2 minutes to agree, it is the end of the month and I pick up Sunburst Orange tomorrow. It also had accessories of $750 and they waived that as well, although I'm not sure they add those until after the deal is made, I'll know tomorrow. Honda Mall of Georgia, northside of Atlanta

I am in the Chicagoland area and would recommend doing business with McGrath Honda in Elgin.
Keep haggling - you'll get your price.

Short answer is no.
#389 of 750 Windshield breakage
Jun 04, 2005 (10:38 am)
Are any of you Element owners having problems with chronic broken/cracked windshields? I guess it's extremely common on Elements (do a Google and see all the hits). It's a big reason I'm hesitant to buy one, otherwise looks like a very useful vehicle!

IMO, the angle of the windshield probably has something to do with this, but I'd check any reports you see to find out what year vehicle is being discussed. It's my impression that the problems were significant in '03 but have lessened (presumably due to an alteration ?) to the point where it's close to a non-issue in '05.
