I have been around this site for awhile and think it is great. Right now I am a two Honda family, my Ridgeline and my wife's Pilot. I have been on this site for awhile due to I want to purchase an Element for my 17 year old daughter. Of course, I really like the thought of owning one too and using it when I can. My question for today, I found a 2003 DX model for $6,999.99, can probably get the car deal down a little and the vehilce has 128,000 miles on it. One owner vehicle and it is inspected with new brakes. I think it is a good deal and want to move forward but it is 2WD not 4WD, so I am a little concerned. Can any one tell me any info if the 2WD DX models still drive good and will go through some bad weather? I live in Maryland, last year was crazy but usually we only get 3-6" of snow now and then. Any info would be helpful. Thanks for your time. Great club, really enjoying reading the post. Thanks!
