I loved the interior of my Element! I would take it over the one in the Soul any day. You can't really hose it down due to the wiring and electronics in the floor, but you can get damn close. I would just wipe it out nose to tale with a damp old bath towel. Sweet!You can hose down the whole interior of an element... its all neoprene
Personally I think it's a case of the actual target market not being able to afford the cars when they're new. Look at the xB (previous 'cool' version - not the american fat wagon it turned into) now that they're 3-6 years old and being traded in.....I'm seeing more and more teen drivers in them. Which would mean they hit their preferred audience, just not in the way they intended. Now that they're at a lower used car market price the people that actually wanted them are getting them.i can see that my dad a 40+ year old bought himself a xB when it first came out and he loves that car!
Gee... I'm always sorry to hear anyone say that.I'll likely NEVER retire.....It would drive me BANANAS,
