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

way?

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


Review

HONESTLY I HAVE A LOT OF THINGS TO SAY
ABOUT THIS GREAT VEHICLE, IS VERY
COMFORTABLE TO TRAVEL, VERY SPACIOUS,
AND EXCELLENT DRIVING ON HIGHWAY.


Best Features

THE INTERIOR IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND BIG EVEN FOR THE REAR PASSENGERS.


Worst Features

PROBABLY A V6 ENGINE WOULD BE GREAT AND A WHITE COLOR. OTHER THING, IF YOU CAN MODIFY THE SEAT BELT POSITION IN THE SIT NOT IN THE DOOR AND IF THEY CAN HIGHER THE ALTITUDE FROM THE FLOOR TO THE VEHICLE

Review

I have had my Element for ten months
now. It is the most functional vehicle
i have ever owned. there are only a
few things that can be improved upon.
The suicide doors while being
essential to the function of this
truck pose a problem for back seat
passengers. The front seatbelt must be
unbuckled and the front door opened
before the back seat passenger can
enter or exit. Also, the windows
barely open at all in the back seat.
For this reason I would recommend the
vehicle to someone who only carries
passengers occasionally. For an active
lifestyle the Element cannot be beat.


Best Features

Turns on a dime. Fun to drive. No carpet. Great sound system. Big car feel.


Worst Features

Mount front seat belt to front door. Windows that open wider in back seat.
