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


Review

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.


Best Features

I loved the fact there wasn't any carpet! I also loved that the seats in the back came all the way out.


Worst Features

I was always smacking my head off the latch in the rear for the back door, if there was a way of eliminating that from the top and put it some where else.

2004 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I owned a 2004 Honda Element for 6 years and recently traded it in ONLY to get a car that got better gas mileage since we moved to the country and needed a gas miser.
It had 78,000 mile on it when I traded it, and I have to say that I just loved that vehicle and I am so sorry I ever traded it.
I never had a car with that many miles on it so I was worried that it would start requiring expensive repairs so I traded it and now I am so sorry.
I LOVED THAT HONDA and it was perfect in the snow and drove well.
It was so dependable and I only replaced brakes and battery and tires in the car the whole time I had it.
I cannot say enough good about this vehicle.
Should have kept it!! A+ rating


Best Features

Space and Room to Carry things and versatility in the vehicle. Dependability. Great in Snow


Worst Features

Only complaint I had was the back doors were a nuisance to open in a parking lot and limited space. Would not be a good car with children since very hard to access back seat. ONLY problem with vehicle I could see.

2004 Honda Element EX Fwd 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love to drive it

It's extremely easy to maintain

It has very low cost to maintain

Brakes are great

It's tow-able (behind an RV) and I've towed it quite a bit with not even the slightest issue

I don't think I mentioned reliable - it is!

EXTREME head clearance

easy to add towing package with lights (simply plug in for trailer lights)


Best Features

towable (and tows suprisingly well) fun to drive A/C begins putting out cool air almost instantly and very cold air within minutes (I love that) Heat is very good as well I can't get over the low cost of maintenance auto AWD stereo (with SUB Woofer) in the EX models isn't too shabby and has IPOD/IPHONE/EXT music input "integrated" in to the stereo


Worst Features

I feel it should get better mileage (18 to 20 mpg) It definitely needs a bigger fuel tank (abt 250 miles to empty) It's a bit "too fast" in it's steering - definitely precise, but "twitchy" (you do get used to it ) The rear doors are not convenient for the way we us it and it's really inconvenient for grocery shopping esp. between other cars The plastic panels should never have been used in my humble opinion
