I am happy with my Element. Took some time getting use to fine styling :-( (much like an English taxi) But it is so useful, comfortable, cleans up really well, great for hauling stuff and mine is basic beige which really hides the dirt well. I plan to drive it for at least a full 200,000 miles and forgo car payments for sometime.
Configuration of seats, easily changed around.
Windshield builds up ice on the outside edges really fast in bad weather. Blind spot is hard until you get use to it.
