Minor flaws

Vehicle

2004 Honda Element SUV LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Been driving my E for 5 month now, lov'n it ever since the day i bought it. Not a high performance car but great for what i pay for. Suggest to get the EX model if your planning to buy a stick shift, where only EX come with a right armrest on the driver seat. Sunroof not recommended unless off road camping is your favorite activity. It's quite difficult to get any thing (including passengers) out the back seat in a tight parking lot (common problem with suicide doors). Large blind spot on driver side, suggest adding a smaller rear view mirror on the left side. Adding bigger and deeper trays in the middle, where things are not easily bump out to the back.

the only negatives I have found with this car is the choppy ride and it could be a little quieter.

Review

I test drove this car as a goof. I immediately loved the comfort and it's ride. I was pleasantly surprised. I commute about 45 miles each way to work and this is pure fun to be in. I know the look is strange but this car is functional. It's not as spacious for cargo as our Odyssey but it makes up for it in many other areas. We had our first snow of substance last weekend. We had 18 inches. Before the plows came down our street, I tested the real time 4 wheel drive. It was spectacular. I was impressed. It did not spin or swerve. It grabbed the road and I felt in control. Excellent job, Honda. We have 4 Hondas (Odyssey, Accord, Civic) and this is my favorite. I'd recommend it to all.

Highly versatile, Honda quality

Review

I'm at the opposite extreme from Honda's target market (Gen Y) for the Element -- I bought this car as an eminently practical solution to multi- function "retirement car" needs in rural Puget Sound. It regularly surprises and pleases with its thoughful practicality, abundant capacity, eager performance, and unperturbed handling on less-than- ideal road conditions. After 4 months and 5K miles it has yet to reveal a flaw in build quality. The Element's design requires some getting used to. The "window sills" are unusually high, and visibility on the flanks is iffy; the wide-opening clamshell doors make loading tough in tight parking stalls. Overall, it's a winner!

Review

I just bought a new left over 2004 Element last week. Needless to say I was curious how it would handle the Blizzard of 2005. I was out in it all day Saturday and while other cars were stuck, my E just kept crusing along. I took it into a state park with 6+ inches of plowed snow on some back roads and it never missed a beat. The versatility is great and the ride is better than my 02 Civic. You'll love those wash out floors!!

Review

After driving my '04 Element for 7+ months now, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. This is one versatile vehicle, which does many things capably and some things brilliantly. A bit of background: I've owned a stupid number of vehicles (about 20) in the last 20 years, everything from tiny sports cars to vans to SUVs to pickups, and the Element seems to me to be unique in that it has at least a little something that's desirable in all those segments rolled into one vehicle.

I love driving this little big utility suv. My job requires me to haul some things and it fits the bill just right. I feel like I am driving an expensive SUV but I am not. Mileage is really good. Love it, Love it.
