In my element with the Element
By ray on


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


Recently retired and traded in a small pickup for an Element. Great vehicle! The plastic cladding on the exterior has protected me from a lot of rock hits. I have had it in a snow storm at Tahoe, camping at the coastal redwoods, hauling dogs and/or people and road tripping so this is a very adaptable auto. Added a trailer hitch for external bikes and a roof rack for a kayak. I will be keeping this Honda until Honda comes out with a diesel or hybrid 4 cylinder.

Best Features

xm radio and aux plug for mp3s. Adaptable back seats. Ease of cleaning.

Worst Features

make the spare tire a full size and relocate off the back hatch. Create more storage space, hidden and otherwise.
