I just wanted to know what the differences between the Element & Pilot 4WD systems. Also, which system would be better in deeper snow? My street seems like it is always the last to get plowed & I am at the bottom of the hill. Poor me.:|

I believe the Pilot (and Ridgeline) trans is more robust in construction and you can also "lock" in gears 1,2 & Reverse (at least up to about 20mph).
Otherwise, they are both Front Wheel Drive until it needs to be All Wheel Drive. Better in the snow? I dont have too much problem in the mts (Element) with hwy type tires but an extra set of studded winter tires woulnt be a bad idea.

ps others here can give you a more technical description of the tranny differences.
