10. My husband thought about an Element but apparently it's actually difficult to use
with a car seat because the rear seats are really far back in the car. You have to crawl to the back to get baby in and out. That wouldn't be fun in the winter when the floor of the car gets covered with slush and mud (not to mention cheerios).

Thanks for the link!
