2004 Honda Element EX Fwd 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I love to drive it

It's extremely easy to maintain

It has very low cost to maintain

Brakes are great

It's tow-able (behind an RV) and I've towed it quite a bit with not even the slightest issue

I don't think I mentioned reliable - it is!

EXTREME head clearance

easy to add towing package with lights (simply plug in for trailer lights)

Best Features

towable (and tows suprisingly well) fun to drive A/C begins putting out cool air almost instantly and very cold air within minutes (I love that) Heat is very good as well I can't get over the low cost of maintenance auto AWD stereo (with SUB Woofer) in the EX models isn't too shabby and has IPOD/IPHONE/EXT music input "integrated" in to the stereo

Worst Features

I feel it should get better mileage (18 to 20 mpg) It definitely needs a bigger fuel tank (abt 250 miles to empty) It's a bit "too fast" in it's steering - definitely precise, but "twitchy" (you do get used to it ) The rear doors are not convenient for the way we us it and it's really inconvenient for grocery shopping esp. between other cars The plastic panels should never have been used in my humble opinion
