2003 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


There is no better car if you, like I, need to haul furniture or just more than you intended to buy at Costco. I have had the car for four years and almost 60,000 miles, and there have been no major repairs needed. As a result, this Element has cost far less to own and maintain than I ever expected. Although some people dislike the way the back doors open, it is a real advantage when you are trying to reach items or move bulky furniture in or out. On occasion, I have removed the back seats and used the element as a small van when moving our adult children to college or a new apartment. There is almost as much room as a small UHaul. In short, I am very satisfied with this car.

Best Features

Boxy shape that maximizes hauling capacity.

Worst Features

Better suspension. Sometimes the ride in the back seat can be a bumpy. The front-seat ride is fine.
