Default Honda Element problems?

I am considering an Honda Element 2004. I hear something about the windshield getting cracked (Is anything being done about it?), and noises coming from it, and some light turning on when it hits a certain mileage point...something like that...What are all these problems and why are they occurring? I don't want to waste money on something that can cost me money later!Thanks!

the windshield cracking problem happened on a limited number of early production vehicles and had to do with a stress that was placed on the windshield during production. that problem was fixed. All of the vehicles that were going to crack the windshield from that problem have already done so as that was 4 years ago and if it hasn't cracked yet then it won't.the wind noise was from the roof rack. when the cross bars were put on the roof rack rails the installers left out the rubber that had to be removed during the installation figuring it wasn't necessary. simply putting the rubber seal back in the roof rack channel fixed that problemall Honda's have maintenance required lights that come on every 5000 miles to alert you to the need for a service. there is nothing unusual with that.the element has been a remarkably trouble free vehicle since its introduction. if the Element is what you like I wouldn't hesitate in buying one. always make sure you pay a technician to check the vehicle out before you buy it to be sure that it was well maintained and that there are no problems. that goes for any used car, not just the element.hope that helps
