I am living in Canada (Montreal), and 3 weeks ago I was almost ready to order my new 2007 Element, and when the dealer was looking for availability of my model/color, he found that almost nothing is available at the moment. The color that I want, will be only available in the next shipment to Canada for the 2008 models. And that is next July!! No more info. No date, no specifications.
So I decided to wait for the 2008 model and expect more options (like navigation system, external thermometer, heated side mirror, etc...).
I don't have any proof. But you can verify if you want. The dealer is Hamel Honda (www.hamelhonda.com). Give them a call! Ask for availability for a blue 2007 element 4wd....
I can wait to have the new specs! I also hope no price increase....

when does information about new models typically come out? i've never paid any attention (until now b/c i'm in the market).
it sounds like no one knows much about the 2008. i'm praying for a more fuel efficient engine - esp in light of the recent gas prices.

I bought the first 2008 Element sold in the Chicago area (according to the dealer) in mid-June. I bougth the SC in gray because I liked the tires, projector headlights and the carpeted interior. The XM radio with subwoofer sounds great, it's fun to drive, I get 22-24 MPG so far (~ 1000 miles) and it gets a lot more admiring looks that I expected. NAV, Outside Temp, compass, etc were not available and I can't tell the '07 SC from the '08, but I couldn't get fog lamps installed (yet) because the '07 fog lamps won't fit. So far, I think it's practical (the SC truly has a dual personality), comfortable, fun to drive and clearly unique looking. I only wish they had more geek options.
#33 of 39 '08 SC, Do the Tent accessories fit this?

Just bought the wife an '08 SC (root-beer) to replace her mini-van.
I'd like to get her the 'tent' and 'table' accessories. The Honda site isn't really clear. Has anyone here tried the 'tent' option on the SC?
This isn't for camping, more like tailgating and watching the tennis tourneys from the parking lot. A little shade can be a good thing.
