I'm seriously considering trading in my Prius and getting an Element. I want the moon roof. Does the 08 have a moon roof? How about the 09?

Thanks!

As far as I know, the "moon" roof has been standard on the 4WD models from the beginning. It's not even an option on the 2WD or SC. If you get a 4WD Element, get the sun shade, too. I'm thinking about it-the interior gets kinda warm because of the sun shinninig in.

Opening the moonroof goes a long way to keeping things cool.

How about the 09?
The moonroof was discontinued for 2009.

Putting a piece of 35% static tint film on it goes a long way toward reducing the greenhouse effect through the moon roof, and doesn't interfere with opening the panel for ventilation. I made a dollar store sunshade to use on the moonroof. It sticks to the vinyl film nicely with the panel open, but it hasn't been sunny enough since I made it to need it.

Like GaryS said moon roof no longer avaliable on any model 2009 Element. I thought I would miss it but I really don't.

what gary said. up to 08 on 4wd models only. i like having it because leaving it open REALLY does help keep the car cooler - did i mention we're on like our 7th 100 degree day in a row here?
