2009 Honda Element EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Purchased my Element new as part of cash for clunkers program, after looking at it for several years. What attracted me to this car is that it has a very flexible interior that allows you to haul lots of different things. Both rear seats fold up or can be removed, leaving you with a totally flat load floor. Access to the interior is very good from both the back and side. The interior is very practical with rubber flooring and an excellent sound system. The EX now comes with XM satellite included, and also has a power port and aux jack in the dash that works great for an ipod. The exterior is a box. But I like it.

Best Features

Maneuverability, great for hauling things, spacious interior with lots of headroom. Terrific stereo. Very intuitive controls.

Worst Features

Wish fuel economy was better! Would sacrifice some boxiness if it could get another 2 - 3 mpg. Side "suicide" door closes with a thud.
