2004 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
The Element is versatile and roomy, rear
seats remove or fold to sides...great
storage, especially overhead
compartment, controls easy to read and
automatic shift in comfortable position.
The rear seating is roomy, although the
back only seats four. The car is
reliable and runs well with excellent
steering and breaking. The fuel economy
is good. I average 24-26 MPG. The
Element handles well in ice and snow and
has a killer stereo. I love the MP3
jack for my ipod. The side doors opened
easily to load equipment.
Great features include MP3 jack in
front, great stereo including
subwoofer, fold away and removable rear
seats, seats that fold down to form two
cots, removable moon roof in rear to
watch stars and washable interior. Side
doors open all the way for easy loading.
I would have preferred the car to seat 5
with an extra rear seat, moon roof in
front as opposed to rear, slightly
stronger engine. Also, front passengers
have to undo seat belts and open their
doors to allow rear passengers to enter.
That can be a little inconvenient.
