If you own an Element and you don't love it, you probably picked the wings off bugs as a child. It's probably the best all round car that anyone has ever made, and while some folks don't like the boxy looks, I think it's cool and unusual. It signals that you are happy, don't give a crap what folks think about you, and you have probably moved 20 bags of mulch, 100 pot plants and a few friends out of their apartments in one trip. It is surprisingly quick from 50-80, though that is just a wee bonus. It has great headroom, so if you have a gargantuan cranium, regularly wear a helmet or are Brian May, you're good. Also happens to be sought after in Portland, so you can figure out for yourself if you want that association. Mine lasted 180K before I traded it in, had a little tear in my eye, though we had a good run. Farewell my beauty.
