    Greetings & Introductions
    Hi EOC community! I recently purchased a 2010 Element EX w/ 81k. I'm a newbie to the scene, but have liked these vehicles for a while. Excited about my purchase and loving it so far. Seems to be in great condition and it looks like the previous owner maintained it well(based on the pile of...

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hey there, fellow Element owners. I just bought my first, a 2006 EX in Rallye Red. I've been intrigued by these Soviet-era-ice-cream-truck looking vehicles since they were introduced. I drove a 1998 Toyota 4Runner for 15 years. I loved it. It was my exoskeleton. Then, while traveling west to...

    Greetings & Introductions
    My wife and I just purchased a 2003 Element with 112,000 this past week. We had been looking to replace our 1994 Toyota Previa with 257,000, did not want to pay to have the AC fixed on it anymore. We had been looking around for an Element for about a month and drove farther than we wanted to, to...
  7. New Element Owner Sees the Light

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello, EOC: I am very late to the party. I've wanted a green Element for years, and could not find one in this area with low mileage. Yesterday, I test drove and immediately bought a 2010 Element in Tango Red Pearl with 33,000 miles. She's gorgeous and clean and scrupulously...
