it's funny because I have always thought that Elements were ugly...and then I started doin the research on them and they really do grow on you! Now i love this car!

It's funny because when I told my mom I wanted an Element, she responded with "you mean that ugly car that I cringe at every time I see it on the freeway??? are you sure???"

Then I had her test drive a kiwi one at the dealership for me and afterwards she told me "u know, it's actually a pretty sporty car. It's not that bad" LOL

I hear it occasionally. My immediate response is "your wife (or daughter) was not complaining last nite when she was in the back seat!"

Always stops them dead in their tracks.

Happens almost daily!! Those people are usually driving a Sentra or some other cookie cutter car!! The Element is and was the best looking box type ride on the market. And now they don't make em anymore it makes it even better cuz you cant jus go out and buy em everywhere. Haters be hatin and I keep ridin and smilin

So far have not had anyone tell me they thought my Element was ugly. Actually it seems for the most part no one even notices it, even other Element owners.

Mostly I hear - "What have you got in there? Wow, that's fast! Is that stock? Sweet!" Never had a comment on the appearance other than it looks nice, like the color, great wheels. So I have no complaints. I like it - that's all that matters. Drive what you like.

Man I'm just enjoying the not so beautiful weather down here in the south right now. my E is filthy from the constant bad weather. I've been lucky enough to avoid the horrible sickness that everyone seems to be getting. Any word yet on the transfer.


GR8biker. you have a huge plus your E can blow the doors off most of the cars on the road.

A guy I work with give me crap on the looks. I just responded with don't you drive a PT Cruiser? So how can you say anything on looks of a car
