2005 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

It might look like a toaster, but inside it really is a Honda. Good build quality, though the materials seem plain or plastic, but that is what they are because the vehicle is all about being utilitarian. This vehicle really a swiss army knife that you can drive. The doors open wide (side loading). seats fold up and out of the way, and if you need to carry a 2X4 over 11 feet long, you open up the sun roof and stuff it in. Gas mileage at 24+ on the highway could be better. At first my wife hated my toy, however everywhere we go we seem to take it not because it rides the best it is OK, but a truck. We take it because you never know what kind or size of treasure she may find.

Favorite Features

Ability to carry stuff, and ease of loading

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage, ride (replace the wranglers with BFGs)
