I love this car!

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

I went to Honda to buy an accord. Some how the sales dude got me to test drive the Element and from then on I was hooked. So many cars make you feel cramped, not with this car. More than enough head room (my husband is 6'4"), great stereo. Love the iPod hookup. Fun to drive. A little more hp would be nice but it's not slow. The amount of stuff that you can fit in this thing is absolutely amazing. 900 sq ft of wood floors. Baseboards. 2 bikes. Patio table (not taken apart) the list goes on and on. It's like having a truck with the stuff I have crammed in there. Very cold a/c. I've had it now for 2 years and besides oil changes, new tire and brakes, it has been a dream car.

I just got it! You either love it or hate it. I love it. It sucks gas! That's the only thing negative I can say about it. They 21 mpg City, Don't think so. It's more like 18. Power is O.K. Drives nice, handles well and still fit's in tight places. It's a cross between a truck, van, and a SUV. I heard it was designed for the younger generation, I'm 40 and I think it's awesome. Lots of room, easy to change the seats around. I use it for work and I don't have to worry about it getting banged up or stuff spilled in it. With it's out side panels, waterproof seat covers & utility floors. If I could, I would have gotten the EX. Oh well, Next time.

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

When I was in search of a new vehicle, I wanted another SUV, only more economical and efficent. There were many to choose from, but only one stood out from the rest. I saw this cubical creature on the road, and wasn't for sure about it. I test drove it, and went to other dealership, and tried other boxes, but came away dissapointed. I couldn't put this, small looking box out of my mind, and remembered how roomy and efficent it was inside. It had alot of practical qualities inside of it, that some of the other more expensive ones didn't. It made me feel that I wasn't getting alot for my money! I had a chance to go with a major upgrade with all the fuss of the name, but I choose my box instead




Love it

The Element is everything I thought it would be and more. It's stylish, comfortable and handles well on the road. It's particularly great for my big dog who is older and has trouble getting in and out of most cars. This one's a cinch for her. Plus it's easy to clean up after a weekend at the beach. And the cargo space!!!




Great car

I am 58 years old, so I know a little about new cars. This is greatest car I have ever owned, not counting the 69 Volkswagen camper.
