2008 Honda Element Repair Question
You have that backwards. The high mileage means it was driven a lot on the highway. That's when almost no engine wear takes place. Engine wear occurs when it is still cold right after starting and parts haven't expanded yet to fit right. Low mileage vehicles that saw a lot of short trip driving are the ones to be avoided. Sounds like you found a three-year-old vehicle with much less than three years worth of engine wear.
