This car is a survivor!!

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


My husband recently totaled our Element. He swerved to miss a deer at 60MPH, spun out on the road berm, and the car rolled down the highway, landed on its wheels, then smashed into the ditch/hillside. The only part of the car that was not mutilated was the back hatch door. The car was smashed beyond recognition. My husband was uninjured except for a goose-egg on his forehead since the drivers airbag did not go off. This vehicle held together so well that even if it held 4 people, all would most likely have been unharmed, except from flying glass. ALL this and the engine would still run. I would totally buy another Element, and plan to as soon as possible! This car is amazing!

Best Features

Roomy, vinyl interior, multiple seat configurations, great gas mileage, and apparently holds together great in an accident.

Worst Features

Blind spots, no passenger armrest in front, side drop airbags.
