I was surprised by the overall
practicallity of this vehicle.
Everything in the car has its place and
purpose, from the numerous cup holders
between the driver and passenger seats
to the back seats being slightly higher
than the front.
One of my most favorite features of the
Element is the large amount of room in
the car. I never feel cramped or
closed in and the car can hold a large
amount of gear and baggage along with
One minor suggestion would be to place
an armrest on the passenger side.
I purchased this car for my business.
It has become my "drive everywhere"
car. My friends love it. We take road
trips and we all feel relaxed. Because
of the massive leg room and because the
back seats recline, the passsengers in
the back seats are just as comfortable
as the front seat passengers.
The swing out doors, the tailgate,
washable interior, sound system, the
folding rear seats.
The floors need to be a washable
material that has a feel of rubber.
Things tend to slide on the hard
plastic floor. I want a sunroof in the
front. Be able to get the car in one
Very comfortable for trips and the
4wheel drive works seemlessly. The
neoprene seats were surprisingly cool
.It is great to put your bicycle inside
Quiet and very nimble. We love the rear
tailgate arrangement for loading and
The looks are our best loved feature.
Better assembly as gaskets and trim
parts fall off!
It needs a factory availble GPS screen!

Our Element is wonderful. It's fun to
drive, it's roomy and it gets a lot of
compliments. Our 5 dogs love it!
However, considering it is advertised
as a rugged vehicle designed to carry
all sorts of gear, the interior
scratches way too easily - including
the dashboard area that the dogs don't
have access to.
Ease of use, body style, roominess,
stadium seating in the back.
Use higher-grade scratch resistant
materials on the interior, make console
between driver and passenger seats arm

Ive had my Element for three months,
and already 10,000 miles. This vehicle
is terrific in every sense of the
word. After four Accords since 1987
and over a million miles on them I
again put my trust in them and this car
is perfect. Ive camped in in four
times been to the Indy 500, MIS races
with one more to go and its just the
best. Great fuel milage great ride and
no not the noise that I have read
about. I drive it over a hundred miles
a day to work and back on the freeway
and it doesnt skip a beat. And of
course my 17 year old has to drive it
just to "show off". Although there is
nothing wrong with her Civic. Honda
has another winner here.

I can camp out in it.
