2003 Honda Element EX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Pretty much solid mechanically, although recently had a $900+ starter replacement. However, a squeaking suspension (even after new shocks), loose sun visors that won't stay tightened, a frozen passenger lock that Honda won't replace since it didn't begin to seize until over 60,000 miles (unlike the driver side, which was fixed for free), & map light lenses that keep falling out, are some 1st yr fit & finish issues with my 2003 Element.

Favorite Features

Indestructible rubber floors & rugged upholstery, plus great hauling room for size of vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

Tighter fit & finish in interior fixtures and better locks, & a smoother ride with less noisy suspension, although these issues have probably all been addressed in the 6 years since the Element's intro.
