Beware Prime Honda in Saco Maine. I tried to purchase a 2008 AWD EX leftover in December, and they used 2 distinctive tools to try and up the purchasing price;
1. After a few phone calls to inquire and begin the interest portion of the deal, they stated a price on the phone that seemed in the correct ballpark for this car. When arriving to have the face to face encounter, they denied stating that price and said to me, "you must be mistaken!".
2. I was trading a 2004 EX AWD with 56K on it, and after a 40 minute delay and having never looked at my Element, they came back with a price in the $8K range for my trade! Book was $11.5-$12.5K.
I was astounded and stormed to the door of the dealership, which they had locked because of the severe wind that day.
I demanded to be let out of the store while glaring at them.
In a nutshell, Prime Honda in Saco Maine are basically a group of low-class liars who try to screw anyone who goes there.
I ended up buying a 2009 RAV4 AWD 6 cylinder and will never again, consider going to a Honda dealership, especially Prime Honda in Saco Maine.
THey also tried calling me back 3 times in the next few weeks but I would not return their call. I will not continue any relationship with a group of liars!

Now isnt it a little unfair to label a brand for what a dealership does? I know that most of the Honda dealers i went to in MN were almost as bad as that dealership sounds. They offered me in 2006 5K for an 01 chev silverado 4x4 custom, never even looked at it. It booked for around 10K at the time. I sold the truck on my own and went to Walser Honda in Burnsville and was treated very well.
#726 of 750 Current Price on Automatic EX?
Mar 18, 2009 (5:59 pm)
First time poster here.
I'm looking to purchase a 2WD EX - Automatic. I'm located in the South Bay area of California.
A few internet quotes I've obtained so far seem rather high when compared against some of the other posts I've seen on here recently (circa 20k otd). Has the reduced supply for the element raised prices? Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. The quotes I've obtained so far are:
$24, 097 (out the door price)
$24, 000 (out the door price)

I bought my husband a certified used 2006 Element EX AWD in October 09. It had 10,668. I paid $15,465 before tax and warranty. I bought the extended warranty to 100,000. for about $1200. really wanted peace of mind. It had some extras like roof rack and side rails. My hubby loves it. I have also used it with my two kids and two huge car seats and no issues. A little hard ot get my little guy in because the seat is set far back, but they have a lot of room.

Sounds like you got a very good deal.
I was looking for info on new Elements. But, it does not look like too many new Element buyers are posting, or there are just no new Element sales...

Is a price of $21,000 for a 2010 a good price for a LX model? I'm in TN.
