2004 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I BOUGHT THE VEHICAL OUT OF PURE
CURIOSITY. AFTER OWNING IT FOR A MONTH
OR SO, I DECIDED TO BUY A PERSONAL
WATERCRAFT. NOT KNOWING IF THE ELEMENT
COULD TOW IT OR NOT I FIGURED I WOULD
GIVE IT A TRY. AFTER MY FIRST LAKE TRIP
I WAS CONVINCED I HAD PURCHASED ONE OF
THE COOLEST DAMN THINGS EVER. IT TOWS
GREAT! THEN I GOT TO CAMP IN IT AND
REALLY ENJOYED STAYING INSIDE RATHER
THAN OUT! ITS LIKE A MINI-MOBLE HOME!
THE BEST PART WAS, I HAD TO PULL OUT
A '04 DODGE RAM THAT WAS STUCK. FUNNY
B/C I JUST TRADED THAT TRUCK OFF FOR
MY "E". AMEN FOR AWD!
AWD. VERSATILITY OF THE INTERIOR,
OPTIONAL PRIVACY CURTAIN FOR OVER NIGHT
FUEL ECONOMY. V8
OPTIONAL BLONDE ON THE SIDE. (PROBABLY
COST TO MUCH!)
COMPARED TO OTHER VEHICLES IN ITS CLASS
THE EXTERIOR DESIGN AND MAKER MADE ME
CHOOSE THE HONDA ELEMENT.THIS IS THE
FOURTH HONDA I'V OWNED,THE PREVIOUS
THREE WERE GREAT CARS AND THE ELEMENT
IS NO EXCEPTION.I LOVE THE VERSITILITY
OF THE INTERIOR AND THE SMOOTH PICKUP
OF THE ENGINE.THE DENT RESISTANT
BUMPERS ALSO COMES IN HANDY.
MY FAVORITE FEATURES ARE THE
SUBWOOFER,THE VERSATILITY OF THE
INTERIOR AND THE DESIGN OF THE FRONT
I THINK HONDA SHOULD MAKE SOME
IMPROVEMENTS ON FUEL EFFICIENCY.
I'm glad that I bought this vehicle.
I truly enjoy driving it whether on
the interstate or in town. It's easy
to handle and gives a very nice
feeling of spaciousness while seated
in any of one of the four seats.
Honda built this vehicle for the young
but it is my understanding that the
average age of buyers is 44 years.
I'm 65 years old; why should the kids
have all the fun!
Excellent visability (except for the
unecessarily large side view
mirrors). Flexibility for interior
space is great. Easy entry & egress
for back seats.
Gas mileage is very disappointing for
a Honda. Consider Element for next
hybrid platform. Add a compass and
thermometer to panel. Improve
visibility of gauges during daytime
