Back when I first purchased my Honda Element, it was such an odd looking car that my salesman said, "Whenever you go grocery shopping, add 20 minutes to your time, because people will stop you and want to know about the Element." Sure enough, the first time we went to the store, I had to explain to 3 people while loading our groceries just what the car could do. Yep, 20 minutes was about right....for about a month and a half! NOW, being that the 'Max is a fairly new hybrid and a little odd in a cute kinda way, have any of you experienced any of the aformentioned reactions to your new 'Max after you bought it and then had to 'splain stuff to people who needed to know all about it when you stopped? Since it has been out for several years, I would assume that when I get mine (and there are a few others around that I see), the attraction to it will not be as magnetic as to when it was first new to the World, or at least the USA.
