2004 Honda Element EX AWD
By Elementary on
2004 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Versatile.Many fact. add-ons (fog lights, tow bar,etc) are overpriced; I chose aftermarket ones. Wife & I haul a roof box, bikes, kayak, dog & camp gear all at once. Lots of road noise & seats offer very little back suppport for long trips,yet are versatile. I'm unhappy with the syncros/shifting in the manual tranny yet AWD system has been amazing in all conditions.24.8 mpg average.The angle of the windshield makes it prone to rock chips in MN winters. The plastic floor, interior & body panels make for easy cleaning, but scratch easily. Great SUV for GenX outdoor folks that like attention and Honda Reliability. Only problem has been with body panel frame creaks.In time Honda will perfect it!
Easy to Clean,versatile interior,EX Sound System with built in sub,AWD System, Honda reliability, Priced in the low $20's,the tailgate,they offer a Manual gearbox option,
offer a front moon roof,more lumbar support in seats,mount seatbelt system for the front seats to the seats and not the suicide doors (they did fix this for 2006) ,increase roof bar spacing, man. tranny syncros, shrink the front grill opening (coils take a beating) decrease road and body noise
