Before And After

This picture doesn't come close to how ugly this looked. It was so bad that even moi couldn't take it and used some of my "slush fund" funds from selling items during the recent move and had the front clip painted for $350. This vehicle isn't used much these days.

    2. The Element was so successful at attracting the desired young surfer clientele that my mom (elderly cat lady) bought one. Hey, a hose-washable interior is a plus when you are hauling enough barfing cats to the vet to open a pet store! Which of course is why Honda finally had to cancel it, it was taking cat lady sales away from the CRV and the CRV has much higher markups...

    3. It's unfortunate because these are cool vehicles. Not perfect but very useful. And before they cancelled the Element they citified them in a huge way. Same with the CRV from small and not outrageous in price to the opposite.

    4. Honda decided they had to go upscale to make big profits, that's why they cancelled their downscale SUV's or bloated them into something unrecognizable. But clearly the old ones sold like hotcakes, you still see'em everywhere. Not so much with the new ones.

      Just another example of dumbass management fucking up something that worked. Proves that Detroit ain't got the monopoly on fuckups.

    5. Hey. I traded my Civic in for another Element, a silver one to boot. Elements are great cars. They are very functional and fun to drive. I just wish they got better gas mileage.
