Review of the 2003 Honda Element

  • A specialized Honda that is great as along as you need something so specialized.

While I have only had the E since the weekend before thanksgiving I have fallen in love with it. I have spent upwards of 4 hours diving in a day in it and still feel like dirving it more. It is amazingly versatile with the possible interior configurations, and feels very stable compared to other small SUV's and minivans I have driven.




Almost total feng shui!

My Satin Silver's on order (I have my VIN)! I'm in love, but just a few things that unnerve me: 1. no front sunroof, 2. I'm skinny but even I would have liked wider seats in the back than what the silly middle cup holders take up (the Japanese versions are all- seat), 3. missing 4WD-is-happenning indicator light in the dash or at LEAST some interior/exterior marking that what I paid for is actually in there, 4. prefer foot E brake and serious (TV supporting)console to low-profile handbrake, and 5. the mandatory 'lagoon blue' interior is so un-feng shui with the satin silver! By the way, a really neat Element animation is at www.honda.co.jp/ELEMENT.
