Not For Everyone, But Perfect for Me
By Reid on
Vehicle2005 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThis vehicle isn't a perfect fit for everyone, but you should consider it if you need lots of cargo room in a small package, you need a car that's easy to clean, you aren't a speed demon (acceleration is only fair and RPMs run pretty high even at 65 mph), you have to deal with snowy roads on a regular basis, you want a vehicle with a plethora of interior storage compartments, and you're poor (or cheap) enough that you'd rather sleep in your car than in a hotel room.
Best FeaturesEX sound system rocks with subwoofer, XM, MP3, and auxiliary jack! Rear passangers get crazy leg room, reclining seats, and their own sunroof. Interior is easy to clean and it retains its new car smell for over a year. The shifter for the manual transmission is fun and easy to reach.
Worst FeaturesA sunroof for the driver would be nice. Engine gets good MPG for the class, but it works pretty hard. At 65 mph on the highway, the engine spins at over 3,000 rpms. Car seems unnecessarily heavy; it's over two tons, but shorter than a Honda Civic.
