2005 Honda Element LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


The Element is definately misleading at first glance. Once you are inside the vehicle, you forget that you are driving this boxy, compact SUV. The ride is extremely comfortable and, being 8" shorter than a Civic, one can park anywhere with ease. The AWD has been perfect in the ice and snow of hilly Connecticut. The special material used for the seats and floor is easy to clean and doesn't absorb odors or spills. The one downside is that the fuel economy and could be a little better. It is still excellent with a 22.5 mpg, but, if Honda can get it up to 30, it would be perfect. On the flipside, I'd like to see a model wit increased hp, even though 2006's is slightly decreased.

Best Features

- ease of seat removal - floor and seat material - AWD
