Honda Element SC (2008)
for sale

Price: US $1,000.00


Top of the Line 2008 Honda Element SC. I'm the original owner of this very well cared-for vehicle (Auto check says 2-owners, I had the title re-issued after a divorce). Chassis and drivetrain are in EXCELLENT condition, runs like new, ZERO body/chassis rust. Engine has received routine oil changes using only synthetic 5W20 every 10k miles, K&N air filter, new spark plugs at 100k, new front axles at 125k, new shocks/struts at 125k, new tie rods and ends at 135k, new starter motor at 145k. New front brake calipers, pads, rotors (August 2021). New brake calipers and pads on the rear (August 2021). Aftermarket 18x8 aluminum alloy wheels (original OEM Wheels available, contact me). Goodyear Eagle LS 225/55R18 tires in excellent condition have only 14K miles. Note: TPMS light is on in the gauge cluster because of the aftermarket wheels, even though they have universal TRW TPMS sensors, my Honda dealership has not been able to calibrate them. Trans has slight fluid leak but requires only periodic maintenance.
Interior is in EXCELLENT condition, very little wear in this nearly 14 year old, never smoked-in car. Premium leather steering wheel, JVC double-DIN DVD player w/ bluetooth, factory subwoofer with premium Sony door speakers (original factory stereo available, contact me). Car has never been hosed-out because it is fully carpeted. AC blows very cold, heater blows hot soon after engine start. Cargo area in back has some scuffs and scratches but nothing major. Power windows and locks all work. No holes, rips, tears or thin spots in any of the seat fabric or carpet flooring (diver side floor mat has a small hole). Steering wheel radio controls do not work with the aftermarket stereo. 2 keys, 1 key FOB, and 1 valet key included.
Body is in overall Good condition for an old car. Front bumper cover which has had two impacts both under 5mph. It can be repaired/patched and repainted, it's not deformed or structurally compromised. Rear bumper cover has one small impact area from somebody that backed into it, bumper bar is intact and undamaged. Metal body panels have a few minor parking lot dings but no scratches past the clearcoat. Upper tailgate has small impact damage. Aftermarket grill inserts (original factory grill insert available, contact me). All significant damage can be seen in the photos of the listing. No major impacts/accidents, no airbag deployments, frame is perfectly straight.
What it will need in the next 50k miles: E-brake shoes will need replaced if you ever use it. Ball joints are good now but should be replaced by 200k. Replace tires after 175k.
