Hello,

WE are moving to Wyoming and would like to buy an Element.

I was wondering how the Honda elements dealt with the salty winter conditions of the Wyoming roads.
In other words, is the fact that the roads get heavily salted in winter affect the decision of which year used Element to buy.



Thank you

Not sure where you're moving from, but you will be surprised to find that there's not a lot of salt used on the roads in Wyoming. At least in the western part. Salt only works down to about zero degrees for melting snow and ice, and most of the time in WY it's way colder. Usually what's used is a fine pea gravel for traction, so a bug deflector is a good investment. It's not AZ, but cars here last a great deal longer than in the NE or NW.

??????????

I spend occasional time in Wyoming. They don't use salt, they use sand or cinders, for the aforementioned reasons. Salting roads is a Midwestern and Northeastern affliction.

I've seen that ya'll use a lot more salt on your highways than we do...
I don't know if they are just cheap or what...

Our highway's are treated with a liquid calcium/sodium solution just before a it snows, which really cuts down on the amount of salt needed...
