At least you are still in the family and did not switch to Prius. Good luck with the Accord and the new job!
Well folks, its been done. My glorious Element is no more. It was picked up this morning by a gentleman who runs a kayak/canoe outfitting business (so at least I know the E will be used as it was meant to). After much thought, I settled on a 2006 Honda Accord EX-L due to gas mileage concerns after accepting a new position approx 50 miles away.
In the meantime, keep an eye out on the trading post, I have a few extras that I'll be getting rid of in the near future.
Rest assured, I will own an Element again. So I will see all of you later...
