2004 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Review
I still can't say that I like the way the Element looks. It's ugly, and it hasn't really grown on me yet. However, it has more interior space than I expected. Rear seat passengers have tons of space and 2 cup holders, as well as 2 more for the front seat passengers. Great sound system. AWD is great in the snow! Acceleration isn't astounding, but it isn't slow. No carpeting means cleaning up spills is the best. Front pillars make big blind spots, and the "suicide doors" are a pain in a parking lot. The brakes took some getting used to for me, the pedal is a little soft and positioned strangely. Smooth and gentle steering and ride. AC began squeaking recently and cranks VERY slow in the cold.
Favorite Features
The hatch with tailgate, nice sound system (with aux input), tons of interior space, AWD, smooth ride, feels very sturdy and well built
Suggested Improvements
What's the point of a sunroof in the back? Suicide doors are a pain, strange brake feel, odd styling, a manual would have made it more fun to drive!
