The Element is the ultimate utilitarian vehicle. I love the flexibility of having a large cargo area. The entire interior is easy to clean, I am never worried about getting it muddy, wet, or dirty. There is tremendous flexibility with the cargo area since the seats go up. The AWD works great, I've been through heavy snow with great results. On long drives I fit a twin size air mattress in the back and sleep 2 people. I can fit just about anything in the back (bikes, sofas, tons of gear, etc). It seems like every inch of this car is build purely on logic. It's a no frills car that is brilliant in its simplicity. Hey, it took genius to discover E=mc^2, the element follows in that tradition.
Waterproof interior (I really have taken a hose to the interior). Easy to clean (a vacuum works wonders) Super flexible seating (lie flat for a bed, fold up one or both back seats) Low cost Better than average fuel efficiency Very comfy for all passengers Very flexible, all situation vehicle
Have an option to seat 5. An indicator light when the AWD kicks in. Built in AC power inverter. Plug in hybrid option (I can wish can't I?)
