2006 Honda Element EX-P 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
My girlfriend is a car snob (drives an Infiniti and an Audi TT previously) ... she doesn't like it. But I love it! I could have bought something more expensive but very few vehicles offer the value and low-TCO of this thing. I've taken the rear seats out several times to accommodate moving furniture, big screen TVs, etc. Its so versatile.
Roominess inside - I feel claustrophobic in almost anything else now. Ease of cleaning with the rubberized floor is great. The engine on flat roads is spirited. All-wheel drive in the rain is nice. I also like the fact that it is a polarizing design :). Availability of after-market accessories.
Sunroof for the folks up front. More torque from the engine - but I think it is pretty much at its limit now. Driving up the North Georgia and Western NC mountains sometimes takes a while.
