We just bought our Element after many hours reviewing the vehicle. So far it has been a lot of fun for our family to drive. We wish the gas mileage was better but we are looking into that. It is just a great car and everyone loves it. We did have to put two baby sun shades side by side over the skylight, works great.
All of the room in the backseat. The cup holders are great too.
Put a cover over the skylight and make a 5th seat.
