In my search for buying a Honda Element, I decided to buy a 2007-2008. I was just wondering if the lighter colored seats on these years were harder to keep clean than the all grey/darker seats from past models? :?
Mine still look just fine and lord knows I use my E for a looooooot of really dirty stuff. Also the earlier years' material had a habit of cracking as it wears. The tradeoff is the 07+ seat material isn't quite as waterproof, but still really good.
The front seats seem to mask dirt fairly well (havent had the backseats in for years). But the titanium colored armrests on the front doors are absolutely disgusting on my E (dirt + sunscreen + sweat = gross).
