I was initially attracted to the Element because of its interior head and shoulder room. After driving my Element for two years, I am impressed by its road handling. The steering and handling were an added benefit that I did not expect. I hope I can say this 4-5 years from now.
1) Head and shoulder room 2) Plastic quarter panels, front and rear bumpers 3) Steering and handling 4) Location of gear shift
1) Better mud flaps, they act as mud & ice collectors 2) Remote Sun roof option 3) Gas mileage is ok but could be better 4) Better front defroster. Wind shield ices up unless blower is on full 5) Option for 18" to 20" tires
