    Honda stopped making Elements.
    Seemed practical, smaller than the average SUV with better gas mileage,  though having a hybrid version would have been nice. A friend of mine has a first- or second year Element and one of the selling points for him (though it's always tough to tell whether he's being serious) was that he could hose down the inside.

      and sold it to a dog breeder who was absolutely thrilled to get it.  Apparently it is the number 1 choice of dog fanciers because it allows the show kennels to stack up perfectly due to the big square shape.  The buyer told him she was freaking out about what to do when she couldn't get another.  So now I always look for dog stickers on Elements and sure enough, they are almost always there!

      no one was buying them.  The last couple years of sales were pretty pathetic.  I love mine, but it's not without it's faults.  The suicide doors and seatbelts for only four make it somewhat family-unfriendly.  It just didn't appeal to a big enough market, can't blame them for concentrating on the CRV.
