I traded in my 04 Element, and bought the new 08. Loved my first Element, and only traded it because I got a great deal. I live in New England and find the car handles all the weather that we get great. I have taken several trips to New Hampshire. Handles the mountains well.
Love this cars interior because I own a dog. So easy to keep clean. Bucket of hot water, windex and a sponge and your done.
I would like to see center console with raised cup holders, and better arm rests,and it would be nice if the rear window of the clam shell door was electric and went down.
