When I purchased my Honda Element, I was enchanted with the uniqueness of the ride: it was a truck, SUV, and small car mixed altogether and it can get you where you want to go. It's a great ride for someone who doesn't have kids and likes the great versalitity of a crossover vechile.
1) It's a Honda; its gonna retain value
2) Weather conditions/ off road- handles great
3) Plenty interior space; could live out of it
4) Crosscountry trips made easy
1) It's only a 4 seater
2) Arm rest only for driver seat
3) A/C control of cabin is hard because of size
4) Anything on the floor rolls up to the front because of stadium seating
5) Gas mileage runs 19/22

I was looking forward to a second Element when I need to replace this one.

The 2003 Honda Element is a completely new vehicle for Honda. It's also the most adventurous Honda vehicle in quite a long time. Its blend of features, such as barn-style doors and waterproof seats, make it a good choice for those with active lifestyles.
I own 2 Accords (both 2000) both needed transmission work which Honda paid for since they had a recall, 1 Civic(2004) and the CRV(2003). Plus two friends of mine bought an Accord(2007) and Element(200...
