I owned a 2004 Honda Element for 6 years and recently traded it in ONLY to get a car that got better gas mileage since we moved to the country and needed a gas miser.
It had 78,000 mile on it when I traded it, and I have to say that I just loved that vehicle and I am so sorry I ever traded it.
I never had a car with that many miles on it so I was worried that it would start requiring expensive repairs so I traded it and now I am so sorry.
I LOVED THAT HONDA and it was perfect in the snow and drove well.
It was so dependable and I only replaced brakes and battery and tires in the car the whole time I had it.
I cannot say enough good about this vehicle.
Should have kept it!! A+ rating
Space and Room to Carry things and versatility in the vehicle.
Great in Snow
Only complaint I had was the back doors were a nuisance to open in a parking lot and limited space.
Would not be a good car with children since very hard to access back seat.
ONLY problem with vehicle I could see.
