I am very interested in purchasing an Element and have done extensive on-line research, scouring the boards and reading every review/road test I could find. The problem: Paralysis by Analysis! See, I love the Element, but there appears to be a growing list of problems/concerns:

Windshield Cracks
Window Leaks
Dash Rattle
Flimsy Spare Tire Cover (only supports 65 lbs.???)
Scratched (“scratch resistant”) Panels
In Dash CD Skips
Low Load Capacity (only 675 lbs. for passengers and cargo???)
Cracked Fog Lights...

I am wondering what Element Owners and or Dealers have to say. Are these isolated or common issues? Would you go for it now or holdout for the 2004 models?

Thanks!

Just wanted to thank all of you for your time and thoughts. I am still "on the fence" but think I may go for it! My only (major) concern is the low load capacity. When I contacted Honda about it, they confirmed the number (675 lbs.), but could not tell me why it was so low. :?
