2005 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


The Honda Element, while not considered the most stylish box by some, makes up for its styling faults in practicality, ease of operation, space, fuel economy, reliability, etc. The only problem I've had was with the ABS braking system. If the module fails, you run on standard brakes and to turn off the indicator light it will cost $1300 for a module. Nonsense. Run without it. Otherwise I'd buy another Element in a minute. It grows on you and others who get a chance to drive it on extended trips. The floor cleans up easily, the sound system works well, all controls can be read without problems and air conditioning and heating respond well in all weather.

Best Features

Ease in loading, reliability, price, comfort even in the back seat as a passenger, space--runs on cheap gas as well as any car. The engine is smooth and quiet. A great SUV for the money.

Worst Features

ABS module price--put in better exhaust and air intake system for the engine and Voila.
