The Element is a good car for the money. The floorboard is rubber, not carpet which keeps spill stains away. It is easy to clean and looks ok with running boards. The rear seats are raised so you can actually see where you are going from the back seat. It is easier to see when changing lanes compared to other SUV's I have driven. Gas mileage is better than most SUV's, but still not great for a Honda.
Rubber Floorboard and waterproof seats. The doors swing open very wide for easy loading and unloading of children. Fold down tailgate and removable seats for carrying a load. Satellite radio and nice sound system.
