My first post here and here's my story. I had an 05 model LX but recently was rear ended when I stopped to make a left hand turn. My Element was totaled but considering the speed of the truck that hit me,( est. to be 60 mph by the body shop) I was really surprised how well my 05 held up. So well in fact that I made up my mind I was going to get another Element. My wife repeatly brought this up while I was thinking over which cars I should look at. I really enjoyed my 05 model and after I had gotten over the shock of being slammed into, I knew there was no other choice. My new 10 model arrives in 4days.
