The guy is "reviewing" every 2011 car already, when 2010 is still not out?:rolleyes:
Tons of speculation, there is really no new objective information.
Good luck on trusting his word. You have to give him credit for finding a way to attraction easy trusting people to the website.

I wouldn't call this a review, it's more like speculation. If there was a redesigned Element coming in 2011, I think we'd have seen glimpses of it somewhere.

I appreciate the optimism.... but yeah, we need more than speculation. It'll be interesting after these past couple sales years to see if the E makes it. I hope it does, but I'm in good company in that department here.:D

While I'd love to see a 2011 Element, it sounds like this guy read the EOC site and started tossing in all our wishlist/buzzwords: v6, diesel, more off road, clamshell doors, etc to make up an article.
And his factchecker is wrong on definately one point-- the Crosstour is based on the Accord, not the Civic.;-)

Considering that the linked article is purely a semi-maybe-here's-my-guess speculation no more informed than the normal thread traffic on EOC, I've moved this to the general discussion area and tweaked the thread title.

What the "reviewer" didn't note is what we already have in this thread - for people who bought the E for pure function and personal haulage, it now has competition. This would be further market erosion for any potential 2011 redesign.

Also, the "redesign" horse has been flogged here for... what?... three years now? I'll believe it as soon as Honda officially announces something.

He did say one thing i can agree with,

Element’s square shape has always been an aerodynamic albatross.
The Albatross is only bad luck if you kill it! You hear that Honda....

There is no doubt in my mind that there will be a new from the ground up Element very soon. I never said it was true or it was definate. The Dog model will not be the only upgrade.

No element for 20011

I was told by a family member that is a Honda sales person, that 2010 will be the last year for the element. Honda has not said any more than that to the dealers.:-x

They maybe right, but then again this is from a salesperson.;-)
Honda usually will not release that kind of info so early
in a model year, even to dealers.

I agree. Saw lots of Dealer sales people saying 2008 was the last year. Honda never tells them anything.

Bingo.

How would it possibly be in Honda's interest to reveal any change in product status that would negatively impact sales? Early news about a major revamp? "I'll wait until next year's model." Confirmation that the model was discontinued? "I have no interest in an orphan." Honda more than any car company out there plays their cards extremely close to the vest.

GM and Chrysler shoot themselves in this particular foot constantly by either responding to speculation or outright announcing strategy changes that screw sales of standing inventory. It would really suck to be a Saturn dealer right now.

2011 Element Info

I looked around and haven't seen this link posted.
I just hope that they don't ruin the original formula to get a couple thousand more sales.

Don't hold your breath on this one. We have seen this one before. Pure speculation. That article was posted in June 2009. There is no way this site had that kind of info 18 months in advance of a launch of an all new E.
