This is my first Honda. The reputation
for build quality is evident from the
start. If you can live with a four
passenger vehicle, this is probably the
best bang for the buck out there.
Highly practical and easy to use,
converting to a mini-truck in seconds.
I like it and would get another in an
Side foldup rear seats. Vinyl floor,
waterproof seating. Rear seat leg room.
I really am enjoying my Element DX
(FWD) – have 12,000 miles on it! The
fuel economy average is about 27 mpg.
It has enough power to get the job
done and can pass another car OK. Has
done well off the beaten path too. I
traded my 2002 CR-V for an Element and
it handles much better, corners
confidently, has a smoother ride,
seats have more hip-room (not as
comfortable), and feels a lot bigger
inside. Can move furniture with great
ease; great for car camping. Folding
seats work well, though require some
strength. It’s a good value, doesn't
waste gas and like the looks, I highly
Besides being a reliable Honda, it's
just FUN to drive!

now under Lemon Law, which is a real joke.
Runs great if you can get it started.
The 160 hp is terrific! and comes in handy. It's
Reduce pillar width and make back windows to

fantastic car/truck handles lke a car
very roomie interior and very
comfortable ride. If i had a worry it
would be the exterior plastic moulding
seems to me like something that will
get scratched or marred and not be
repairable. It has not happenned to me
but it gives me that impression. I also
would have taken the plastic moulding
and had it go on the bottom half of the
doos so it wouldn't look so "patchy"..
I guess i had to say something not so
positive about a car i absolutely enjoy
drivin when you sit in the car it is
like an oasis it is so roomie and you
wouldn't think that by looking at the
outside of the vehicle. Very good car
roomie interior. NIce look to the dash
and the stereo system is great.
plastic moulding on the body should be
matched to the color of the body of the
car to take away the look of it
