Avoid this SUV like the plague!
By buffalogirl on


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


Very reliable driving; always starts even when it's -20. Not too aerodynamic because of boxy shape, so when you're driving in high wind, hard to control & you feel it! Rough riding, only fits 4 people because of cup holders between 2 back bucket seats. Terrible MPG; we only got about 20m., hwy. Drivers side airbag deployed while it was parked; no collision or impact, apparently a common problem in Elements that Honda won't fix! Very costly! Seat also are already splitting at seams on Driver's side. On our 3rd windshield.

Worst Features

Improve MPG, fix airbag defects before someone gets seriously injured, needs more passenger room
