2004 Honda Element SUV EX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

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 the passengers.


Worst Features

One minor suggestion would be to place an armrest on the passenger side.

2004 Honda Element SUV EX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

The swing out doors, the tailgate, washable interior, sound system, the folding rear seats.


Worst Features

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 solid color.

2004 Honda Element SUV EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Very comfortable for trips and the
4wheel drive works seemlessly. The
neoprene seats were surprisingly cool
.It is great to put your bicycle inside
and upright!
Quiet and very nimble. We love the rear
tailgate arrangement for loading and
packing.


Best Features

The looks are our best loved feature.


Worst Features

Better assembly as gaskets and trim parts fall off! It needs a factory availble GPS screen!

2004 Honda Element SUV EX AWD 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Ease of use, body style, roominess, stadium seating in the back.


Worst Features

Use higher-grade scratch resistant materials on the interior, make console between driver and passenger seats arm level height, automatic lock button on passenger side.

Review

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.


Best Features

The color (orange) the room and the way I can camp out in it.


Worst Features

Nothing
