I picked up my 2010 Element on Saturday. Had Monday off, traveled for business Tuesday and Wednesday. Drove it to the office for the first time today.

I was telling my co-workers about it over lunch, and afterward a bunch of us went out to the parking lot to check it out. None had ever seen the interior of an E and were curious as to why I chose such an ugly vehicle. I flipped one of the back seats up and had both sets of doors wide open. Everyone sat in either a front or back seat (and on the tailgate too).

Comments ranged from "Wow, roomy!" to "I want one." to "I'm sold - my wife needs a new car and I'm getting her this."

It seems that the hating and the ugly-bashing dissipate when people see the interior in action!

When the E first came out I thought that's one strange looking car. Then a few years passed and I kept seeing more and more on the road, and I started to like them. So I bought a 2005 and really liked it. But then in 2008 a Jeep bug bit me, so I sold the E and bought a new 2008 Jeep Liberty, which gave me problems almost from the start...transmission, brakes, leaking skyslider roof, etc. It was pretty nice otherwise..all the bells and whistles. But I knew I wasn't going to keep it, so started looking around at other cars again. Came upon my little 2010 Blue Pearl girl E, and I was in love again!!! This one's a keeper:grin:

Welcome to the world of the nerds spacadet! My co-workers think I'm a nerd because of my E and the way I talk about it all the time...all my EOC related stickers....tagging other Es in the parking lot.....but like you once they actually get up and close they change their mind. :grin:

I have a plan

Hmmmm, aerospace engineering.....traffic jams, bad road conditions..... ground clearance...lifting...what about a flying E?


Hey, that would be some mod!!! Some sort of lambo/airfoil/door, with a bit more HP , natch. I suppose a STOL approach would be good, given the length of most driveways.

Is there an FAA approved nav/coms/GPS/DVD/entertainment double DIN HU available? Niche market I would imagine.

When can you have us a detailed write up? With pictures of course!!!!!

And by 2020, 'Get your E to Mars!'

When my friends, and new friends ride in the E they are always gawking at how much room there is inside and I always say "I know, you can even wear a sombrero when you drive if you want!" They get a kick outta that :lol:

Picture

Since a couple of people have asked, here's my BluE, AT work! I buttoned her up with a sunshade, as I was leaving her at work for a few days while I left on business. I actually took this picture just in case anything happened to her while I was gone. Luckily, I came back to a perfect E!

I've learned that the Element grows on people...
from huh? to eewww... to hmmm... to a small smile, then a possible touch, then watch out - they may snatch it from you...

I kind of feel validated/vindicated in my purchase of an Element...especially if a friggin' aerospace engineer buys one too!
