Bill here. Long time Honda fan. I've been a member of the Element owner's forum since I bought her new in '08. She has 190K on her now so I needed to add to the stable. My wife bought a new car in Feb and the trade in value wasn't there so I kept it for a daily driver to slow down the aging of the Element. Five months later, it became apparent I had made a terrible decision. So now Ellie shares the stable with Polly, a 2022 Trailsport in Sonic Gray Pearl. I don't know if I'll ever get over Honda not making new Elements but I must say Polly is growing on me. Loads of room, although I don't think I'll be able to load my snow blower in it, and you gotta love that V6.
I plan on adding the Curt class 3 hitch along with the T-One wiring harness. I've read how the transmission cooler is hard to come by and found them in stock at Hondaoempartsonline so I ordered one. $350 shipped. I've read several times that the install is 5 or 6 hours. The site I ordered it from says installation will take an hour! At least I know what I'm up against.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to other useful additions?
Thanks in advance for all the help I'm sure to receive being a member of this forum.
Welcome to the forum. You won't miss the Element after driving the Passport for a few months. And considering the fact that you are coming from the Element, the Passport is likely to keep you sated without any pricey additions.
