Love the Element. Best car I have ever owned. Bought it because it was so roomy and dog friendly. Dog hair just blow out the interior. Muddy feet just get a hose.
All the room. The versatility of the interior.
Have had issues with the windshield. Once I found out the windshields for 2003 and 2004 are under recall. There is a tech service bulletin on what to do to fix the issue. It was fixed. There was also a class action lawsuit to cover the windshields.
