AWD my A$$

Driving today in the snow, I got stuck, not once, not twice, oh no, not even three times. FOUR TIMES! I have driven an all-wheel drive for the last 12 years, and when I got my Element after having to sadly turn my BMW in, I asked and made sure it was an all-wheel drive. The very honest salesman assured me it was. LIAR. It is a 2 wheel drive, yup, at least it's the front wheels that move, however, the car weighs nothing so I got stuck, really stuck a couple of times. The more I drive this car, the less I like it. It is very noisy, sucks to the road so you are all over the place and now it truly sucks in the snow. I really did my research too. Hmmm, I thought Honda's were supposed to be really great cars. Am I spoiled because I drove a BMW for 9 years? I don't know, but I can tell you this, I don't like my Element, but I am stuck with it. So I will suck it up. Stevi will NOT be driving this car. I don't know what I am going to do, but I guess I will figure it out. It is a great car for dogs, that's about it.

The guys on car talk SWEAR by the Element. You have the wrong tires on there. Get some good old snow tires on standard rims and you'll do a lot better. I'll help you when I win the lottery, dear.

Elements are also good for 2 year old boys who throw their juice at Grandma. It may not have happened yet, but it will!
