We recently purchased our Element and have found it to be extremely useful. The interior is more spacious than you could imagine for such a small vehicle. It is very well designed. The only drawback so far is that we are getting about 18 MPG mixed City/HWY MPG. To claim 21/26 is a bold statement. Great little milk truck though.
The seats fold down into a twin bed. Very cool feature if you like camping. It reminds me of a toy from my childhood.
A more powerful engine would be nice. I have a V8 in my car that gets better mileage. It could also be 1 or 2 feet longer for more space in the back.
