    2003 Honda Element

    Anything I need to know about the 2003 Honda Element? I haven't had my own car in over 7yrs now, neighbor is selling one for a great deal in great shape.

    1 kid, RF in the MT right now but will either go into a booster or frontier relatively soon (maybe at christmas time)

    EVENTUALLY I'd love to have another kid, but that is a few years out most likely, so will not necessarily have this car.

    It will almost always just be ds and me in the car, but also bf sometimes or other adult or two.

    I've never really bought a car before so trying to figure out how all this works - had a mechanic look at it, bf and my dad both checked it out. No major issues, just one thing that needs minor repair and will cost under $100, and it will need 2 new tires in a few months.

    Anything I need to know? Thoughts? concerns? Things to look for?

    There is a lot of space for RF seats, but it can be hard to get the kid strapped in because of the way the doors open. That is the only input I have to give. ☺ GL!
