Welp, things were good while it lasted... Who am I kidding? This Element required boocoue work on my part but I learned a hell of a lot from it and everyone on here. And for that I am very appreciative.

Last night I hit an Elk and totalled my Element. 😭. I have a whole bunch of new parts and upgrades done to it. The list will be long but I’d rather have these parts go to folks on here than anywhere else.

I’m going to start commpiling the list with stuff available but if there’s something you want or need, just ask and I will do what I can to get it to you.

I am located in Southern NM at the moment. Of course coming to pick parts may be an option or I can mail reasonable sized parts out at the buyers expense.

Please let me know what you need.

Crap! and Sorry! Unfortunately we're used to deer collisions here, but my god, an elk. Did the E keep you OK?

Thanks Marv... it did amazing in that sense. It did not even close to feeling as bad as the damage actually looked. I’ll try and post some picks when I go to move it.

I am very grateful for having such a quality vehicle to protect me and my pooch.

Oh Crap! Sorry to hear that. Are you going to be looking for a replacement E? I hope so. Keep us posted on what you are selling.

Caution: photo’s may make you a little queezy.

Thanks you guys... overall I was really amazed at how well she took this hit. My dog and I were snug as a button.


I really cherish this board, and just it alone makes me want another Element. The vehicle was pretty damn perfect for me. I’m going to look around for another E but at the same time keep my doors open to other possibilities too I think. We’ll see... ☺️ My LX AWD MT was really the bee’s knee’s. It’ll be tough to find another one with everything I want.

Thanks so much dgale. Really appreciate your honesty, kind wisdom, and support these couple of years friend. I’ll keep you updated.
