Hi Edward: That is something I will have looked at. Thanks for your help!


I absolutely HATE our Element. We got the "Dog" edition so we could travel with our two dogs but the ride is SO rough that it bounces the crates around and we are all miserable. And forget going over speed bumps, even crawling jars everything in the rear. What a terrible purchase!
