#535 of 750 Purchased My Vehicle in Oregon
May 30, 2006 (12:52 pm)
I finally found a dealer in oregon with the ex awd auto i wanted - arctic blue - and picked it up sunday. purchase price $20027 not including tax and titling. had to pay $50 for a temp 30 day permit as i am titling it in utah. No access on the car which the dealers will often load up in oregon. Not the cheapest price i found but within a few hundred and the others were in calif where you must pay the 8.75% sales tax regardless.
FYI the dealer - ron tonkin - was very good but it did take hours to get out of there even tho signing the papers only took 10 minutes! the finance person did offer me a 7yr/90000 ext warranty with $100 ded for $1200 and seemed to be surprised when i turned it down.
i fiananced it with honda credit as they had 4.99 for 48 months just for the weekend i think. not great like the 1.9 i got in april of 2005 on my first element but ok for the times.
car drives just like my other one but has different wheels and the audio controls on the steering wheel which is nice.
we really like the gray and blue interior of the arctic blue model.
good luck to all.
#536 of 750 Just bought an LX

I purchased a new LX w MT at my local dealer for $16,500. It had zero miles on it. I've never driven an Element and I just LOVE the seating position...I could drive ALL day.

The EX audio system plays MP3 and WMA CDs. Each CD can hold more than 200 songs. There would be no need to get a 6 discs changer.

LX vs EX should be a no brainer. If one totals up all the benefits from overhead storage, to better stereo inc. XM, MP3 jack, to nicer wheels, to better rear seat quality, remote entry/lock, map lights, seatback pockets... All this and more for $1875.-- or less depending on your negotiations. For me the EX is a bargain in comparison to the LX features. This same assessment goes for the entire Honda line, I would never even consider an LX model over an EX, - ever!

Yep, they should... Where are you at? So Cal?

I'm near Harrisburg, PA and have my eyes on an Kiwi Green 5-speed 2WD EX-P and received an offer for $20757 out-the-door ($19590 + $1167 in taxes). Before-taxes invoice is $19158, before-taxes MSRP is $20675.
Is this decent, or you think I can whittle them down a bit? Looking forward to my Element!
