Newbie, which year element is more reliable?

Hi all, I’ve owned accord and civics to include oldie crx. Im currently leasing Mazda CX-9 but wanted another reliable vehicle to tag miles to keep the lease miles low. I like how element can be used in many ways and the functionality of the space in the back.

I believe I had read that the 2007or 2008 have the chain timing belt which is better and the engine is more durable. Is this the case? I haven’t seen many under 100k miles without paying more fhan 7k. I’ve saw an SC but has many outside scratches and minor dents which I didn’t care for. The only difference I’ve seen between SC and EX besides some exterior difference is the inside dash.

Which year do you recommend? Most are 110k-180k under 8k in my areas
