Review of the 2004 Honda Element

Turned my opinion of it

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda Element DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

When I first saw this car, I was repulsed. A front-wheel-drive SUV? What were they thinking? But my wife has one, and I was wrong about it in every way. It's stylish, comfortable, versatile, and has more "giddyup" than one would think.

I loved this suv

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Element DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I had this SUV for 5yrs, they only thing that I didn't like was the comfort of the seats and that the vehicle rode rough.




Where have you been all

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Element DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

This is the vehicle I've been waiting for. I'm 6'3" and the Element has provided not only necessary leg room but also unexpected head room. As my sister said..."you fit in this car." Since purchasing it, I have driven from Chicago to Butte, MT and back and what has always been a long trip turned out to be a joy to drive. I have also moved to the DC area recently and with the rear seats folded I was able to transfer all those "little things" that you need upon arrival to the new apartment without any hassle. For those with a sense of individuality and a desire for quality, the Element meets both qualifications. P.S. The cat likes it too.




Funky ride

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Element DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

This vehicle is extremely versitle. I have taken the seats out and carried a love seat. I have taken my family of four on long trips in comfort. Last week I drove it 1,000 miles in two days and felt good afterwards. I average 23 MPG and get up to 26 MPG. The engine is smooth, the vehicle is quiet, and I can sleep in it if I want. Plus to clean it I open the doors get out the leaf blower and bhamclean car. I have been asked so many times about the car that I embarass my 16 yr. old. The car could be heavier, have an arm rest and cruise control (I had AC, and a stereo put in immediately) Overall a great vehicle you could call it an FUV, fun utility vehicle

I haven't had my element but for 3 weeks the more i drive it the more I like it...also since gas prices are so high it really makes a difference.Was a little worried that it wouldn't have enough power to pull the Ozark hills, but, I am very impressed...it is such a fun suv




I dont know

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Honda Element DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

It is good on snow days because i can take my children to school right away with no delay. It is very easy to clean on my own iside and on the outside. I like the subwoofer that is sitting inbetween the driver seat and the passanger seat. I know that it picks up good on the acceleration because i am always trying to get out ahead of other cars.It turns very sharp and is easy to get around the corners. It is fun to sit out in the car and watch the stars through the sun roof.
