Purchasing 1st Element, have questions

701 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Hab Mobile
Hello all, I am brand new to the forum and as of yet I am not an Element owner. I am on the market, however, and I would appreciate your thought/opinions.
I am looking to buy used w/ under 30K miles and I want an '07/'08 SC or EX. My plans are to lower my E, custom wheels/tires and some performance mods. Here are my questions:

1. What are the trade offs between a 4WD or a FWD EX?
2. What are the trade offs between an SC and an EX, if any?
3. Is the '09/'10 E much improved over the previous models?

Thank you in advance for any and all comments and information. Have a great day!

Sounds like you should be looking at the SC, which only comes in FWD.
The 2009/10 Changes are mostly stylistic (wheel wheels), front end, grille, etc... but basically the same E in terms of specs and performance.

The main trade off between the SC and EX is the 4wd option; also note that the back moon-roof was eliminated in the E in 2009/10 production years. Prior to that, only the 4wd options had the back moonlight (SC did not have this option).

Hope this helps. My E is the most functional and reliable vehicle that I've ever owned has met or exceeded all of my expectations when I purchased it. I take my E up to Montreal in the summer or down the coast in the mid-Atlantic during spring/summer as well... never with any problems.
