Good reliable car

2005 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car initially b/c of it's roominess. I am 6'4 and I don't think there is any other small SUV with this much room. I would also put it to the test even with the large SUVs. Easy to get in and out of. Gas mileage is better than most SUVs. Easy to keep clean. And, it's the perfect car for city driving and parking. Just enough performance on the road to keep up with everyone. I will own this car likely until it dies. 40,000+ miles in two years and no problems whatsoever (except for chipped windshield).
Great sound system, tons of room, thanks to it's boxy frame. Decent gas mileage for an SUV. Relatively comfortable, but could be better.
