Elements have long caught my eye, and with passing years I've known more and more people who have and love them. We finally took the plunge and wish we hadn't waited so long. It's a great car for all our needs. We took it on a camping trip recently and got fantastic mileage. The doors feel and sound as solid as our old Volvo-- impressively heavy metal. Great handling, and we love those wide doors for packing and unloading.
Nimble handling, great gas mileage, flat rubber floor, quick changing seats. Extremely versatile-- this car is equally at home and stylish in the crowded city and the great wide open spaces. It's PERFECT for our family without being a 'family vehicle'.
Make the seat part (bottom) of the back seat a little longer for better leg comfort/support for taller passengers.
