Is it just me? I am looking for a used 2007/08 Element when at the dealer I sat in a brand new 2011 Element. After just sitting in a 2008, The 2011 seemed uncomfortable to me. The seats were almost too firm. Do the seats really soften up that much or are they really just that hard?:?

I wonder if they're the same as was put in the '09's? I sat in both '08 and '09 when I bought mine and the thing just felt very "wrong" to me. I don't think I can describe it better than that except that I'm sure glad I bought the '08 instead. The seats don't look very different in either of them but they did other things to cut costs so maybe Honda used a different foam or cheaper construction on the new model.

On the side of the seat is a dial that I think is supposed to raise and lower the seat. However on my 08 all it does is make the seat hard and uncomfortable.
Try using the knob to lower the seat and make it softer.
