Thanks to Edmunds, I chose the Honda Element! After considerable research and test drives, the Element fit perfectly. Since I am 6 feet 4 inches tall, I could not have found a more perfect match. The ride is much better than the other vehicles that I looked at. The design is very unique and utilitarian. It gets a lot of compliments. It is useful and well designed. Even when the weather is below 0, the Element starts and warms quickly. The cargo room is amazing and can hold things that I did not think it would. It feels very stable in high winds. It can turn on a dime and leave change. I am very happy.
I have no one feature that is my favorite. It is a thoughtfully designed vehicle that rides and handles like a dream.
Honda does not need to make any improvements. It is perfect.
