Traded in 07 Nissan Frontier CC with 39,000 miles. Needed more space for kids. Element fits the bill. Rear seats with surprising amount of space, front seats ok. Cargo capacity just right. Engine performance pretty good, but a bit noisy. A/C nice and cold in So Cal desert. Made a good choice.
XM radio good, btr than I thought it would be, interior space, exterior design is still the best compared to Scion( too physically small and soft).
Maybe a tad bit more power or diesel in the future, increase load capacity, AWD in SC without the 18s.
