We just bought a 2008 Honda Element. Being the parents of two toddlers we needed a car that could take a beating and this one looked like it could. It has delivered in spades. Our kids LOVE IT-they climb up inside themselves (we bought the side steps) and into their car seats. I love it because I can actually stand in back to buckle them in, which means no more opening one door into oncoming traffic. I just put them in the curbside door and climb in after them to secure them. They also love that they sit up high and can see everything. The audio system is pretty impressive for factory installed.
high rear seats that our kids love, the roominess, the rubber flooring
