2004 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
This is the 7th Honda I have owned. I was curious about the Element when they first came out and was glad to finally purchase a used one with a manual "yeah!" and 100k on it. Of course it has been flawless since I have owned it. So many possible ways to use this vehicle. As a competitive triathlete I am looking forward to this summer and using it for fun weekends. I am going to keep up on the maintenance and do a big service here in the spring (plugs, fluids, etc.). As long as I take care of it, the E should go another 100k for me easy. The skylight is way cool! Stereo is more than adequate and iPod friendly. I might even go camping with my son and sleep on the seats that make beds!
Every which way interior. Love the manual. All-wheel drive laughs at the snow. Sky light - solid stereo. Do anything with it mentality.
50 more hp would be nice along with 25+ mpg instead of 21. Otherwise...?
