2004 Honda Element EX Fwd 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have had my Element for ten months
now. It is the most functional vehicle
i have ever owned. there are only a
few things that can be improved upon.
The suicide doors while being
essential to the function of this
truck pose a problem for back seat
passengers. The front seatbelt must be
unbuckled and the front door opened
before the back seat passenger can
enter or exit. Also, the windows
barely open at all in the back seat.
For this reason I would recommend the
vehicle to someone who only carries
passengers occasionally. For an active
lifestyle the Element cannot be beat.
Turns on a dime. Fun to drive. No
carpet. Great sound system. Big car
Mount front seat belt to front door.
Windows that open wider in back seat.

It has a lot of power for only having
such a small engine. The room inside
is great for the passengers, but it
would be great if it was about 6
inches longer in the back. I am
suprised that their is not a hybrid
Element on the drawing board or one
with a V6.
Snappy response. Passenger room is
Six inches more room behind the back
seat, and a Hybrid version that gets
35 to 40 MPG in town and 33 to 36 on
Just the right hight. Very nice seating
aragment all my back seat passagers like
the way they can see out over the front
and not having to sit off to the side
like others suvs. Also they like the leg
room . As do I the Driver I like the
quick pick up and the ride is better
than the rav4 I had and also better than
the matrix wich I traded in for this ..
Like the all weel drive. power windows
and the doors all side and the rear ..
And the easy to clean floors The rear
sun roof also nice and the dark tint
Should make the side steps for entry on
all .. More colors..
I love my Honda Element, I have had
several Hondas but this one has been
the best. It's fun to drive and has so
much hauling room, it makes going to
the hardware store a piece of cake, not
to mention how nice it is to fold up
the seats and use it for a kennel when
going to the Vet. I like that you
don't have to worry about staining the
carpet when you spill something. This
vehicle is a must have at a great price!
I think what I like the most about the
Element is the different configurations
for the cargo area, this has come in
handy on several occasions.
What needs to be developed is a better
tool for cleaning the molding without
i feel like the king of the road in my
element and when im on the road i need
a place to sleep me and my element go
together like spaghetti and meatballs
theres no better car and i totally
suggest this car over any other car out
there escalade, mercedes, hummer,
lexus, porshe ive driven them all and i
wouldnt trade my element for any of
themif you dont have a element thats
like not having air to breathe
the whole car is my favorite
put about 60 more horsepower in there
and i will live in it
