First they say that the NA ej25 is too slow and that the turbo is much better. Then they recommend an Element saying who cares about horsepower and that the Element has more utility. I have to disagree considering the fact that the Element has a lower payload rating than the Baja....which is pretty low. The Element's 650 lbs just doesn't do it in the utility department.

Not to mention the ulgy factor of 10 on the eliment. it is just a box on wheels.

I can see why so many reviewers can't come up with a clasification for the baja. It is in a clas all on it's own. Nothing out there like it. So all of the reviewers are trying to compair it to the trucks and (so called) crossover vechiels, and cars. But they seem not to be able to be happy with anything and happy with everything about it. They just can't seem to make up their minds. Is it a sports car or a truck. My feelings is that it is inbetween. So we make sacarfices in one area and gain advantages in another.

Just my .02 cents worth.
