This is the first car I have owned for more than 5 years. I think it's a keeper. I live in Mexico and it's the perfect vehicle for the terrain. And like all good Mexicans, you can get at least 6 adults in it - not comfortably - but none the least useful to the culture! Whenever I have it maintenanced here in Mexico, everyone at the dealership has to get inside and check it out and so do the customers - it's definitely a head turner. I had a front end accident and the Element barely had a dent while the other Nissan pickup looked like a Mack truck had hit it. Even in Mexico, Honda dealerships provide excellent service! I have a 4wd/EX Sunset Orange.
Versatility, utility, mobility, durability, reliability. And of course, the interior space and safety features have impressed me.
Better windshield design, passenger seat needs an arm rest too.
