Hey everyone! My name is Jon and I have been driving Honda's for the last 10 years. I just bought my first Element last night, 2007 AWD EX. It is black, just like my previous 05 Civic. I have enjoyed reading the threads on this site and it actually made me much more comfortable with purchasing this vehicle. Just knowing that there are so many of you that are just like me is refreshing. I'm looking forward to many years of happy Element driving!
