Hi I'm Dave and on Tuesday I picked up a Root Beer 07 SC and am really diggin' it.



After ~6 years of service to me, I finally had to say good by to my amazingly trusty '92 Civic. That car had ~250k miles on it and was still running like a champ getting almost 40 mpg! I am really going to miss that car (especially when I go to fill up my new Element tomorrow.)

I'm a hang glider pilot and really need a vehicle more "mountain friendly" than the Civic was. I think the Element will be a perfect balance of size, power, and cargo space for me. Not super huge like a Suburban but with plenty of ground clearance for less-than-perfect mountain roads.

The SC wasn't my preferred model, but I really wanted a manual transmission and this was one of only a handful on the market in Southern California. Plus it has the factory roof racks, and nice sub-woofer with aux hook-up and a warranty to 100k miles.
