Hello from sunny SC. I am an Element owner and am interested to see whether an HRV would be a suitable replacement...of course, we all know that nothing can truly replace an Element! ;)

Jeff , I love my Element too ...I have 165,000 trouble free miles on my 2008 EX now.....looking for a replacement HONDA vehicle to replace my Element at 200k ...looks like I am leaning to a Vezel,HRV ,,,,,,,I have a sneaking hunch however when I finally get to see one of these HRV's in person I am going to classify it as too small for my needs :( ....holding out hope it still may be suitable however when seen in the flesh !

The element is such an intersting business case to me. It was supposed to beHondas renaissance with the "young" market yet the most avid propoentnes of the element turned out to be grand mothers into antiquing.

Granted that's quite the generalization ;)

I don't know why automakers think that young people like cars that are shaped like boxes. Those types of vehicles have never been appealing to me.
that's quite the generalization you've just made. Do you have any other proof to support your theory other than the Element? ;) Because the FRS is quite the opposite of boxy...

I bought my Element new in July 2003. It just turned over 40,000 miles a few weeks ago. I only used it in winter and to haul musical equipment to gigs. For the naysayers, I like it because it functions as a van, a comfortable suv around town, a camper and with that tailgate, I was hauling 16' lumber in it.

Its gonna be real hard for me to give up that tailgate!

As long as going to the HRV won't be an inconvenience it should be a nice step forward. Having a tailgate for lumber does help though.

Sounds like the Element may not be the nicest looking vehicle, but it is pretty practical.
