Hi all,

I had a major problem with my Element the other day. While it may not sound like much, it did cause me some issues.

I was driving down the Long Island Expressway heading out to a client's. I was in the middle lane, with cars, as always around me. Now usually I can move in and out of a lane to get around some slower cars to get off at the exit I want. This guy in a mini-van was off my right side, and would not move. He was looking the E over. It took me almost to my exit before I was able to get infront of him. I had to lay back till I had room with the car in front of me, and him to gas it, and move over.

This guy just could not keep his eyes off the Element.

Me too. I'd like to know if Honda knows about this and what they're prepared to do to remedy this situation. :shock: :twisted: :lol:

I have had the same experiences - people stare, if your stopped they ask questions. I was in Taos for spring break (I'm a teacher) and I had to drop a friend off at a ford dealership. 3 sales associates came out and I had to give a tour of the car. Got it washed today and three Hummers came through while I was there. I still got the most looks :D

I don't think you could get more stares if you were driving a Ferrari. For all the staring, this isn't a car for the insecure.

Picked my E up on friday and have been getting the same stares. Lots of pointed fingers, stumped looks, and thumbs up. Saturday night I had a guy who refused to get off the bumper or beside me. I thought it was ok at first but 5 minutes in I was mad! luckily a following police officer also saw his tailgating and stopped him. Then guess who stared and smiled!

I know how you feel, couldn't get out of the parking lot Monday night until I gave two test drives and spent an extra half-hour talking about the car. Lesse, at $250/hour, that comes to $125 that Honda owes me! Think I'll collect?
