I could buy a 2010 model but I was hoping they might come out with cloth seats and a solid color paint that covers the entire vehicle in 2011. I don't like the black piece in back of the car. It would be so much better if it was painted the same color as the rest of the car. I am also not fond of the pseudo-plastic washable seats.
Tomorrow is October 1st, so maybe Honda is waiting to release the 2011 car in October? Maybe November? Maybe even December. I plan to wait until the release date whenever that occurs.
I can't even find any sneak peak information about possible 2011 Element in internet searches. Maybe Honda isn't doing anything at all to the 2011's so that might be why there is nothing.
Might as well wait until the 2011's finally get released. It is quite late in the year to buy a 2010. If there are no changes I can probably still find a 2010 at a discount.
Honda has released many of their 2011 models by now, but not the 2011 Element.
