5 stars safety features 4 wheel drive. An all weather SUV.

I have had my element for about 4 years. Love the all wheel drive and safety features it has. Also has an amazing sound system which is great for outdoor off-road festivities. I live in New Jersey and my element has survived all our storms including sandy. If I didn't have my element to plow through puddles, I would not have been able to leave as I live in a peninsula town which floods continuously. My element has been a great travel companion and I always feel safe! After having 9 other hunk of junk cars, I splurged for what I really wanted and am greatly satisfied with my car. Not only can you take out the back seats but you can wash and wipe the floors so easily! I am an artist and get great use transporting materials and sculptures with such a spacious interior. And not to mention parallel parking in small spaces because it is the perfect fit. Thanks Honda!

So much room in the car!!

My favorite aspect of the car is the huge amount of space available. You can take the seats out or fold them onto the sides of the car to give more room, which makes it great for hauling stuff. It was a lifesaver when moving to go to university. One downside for me is the suicide doors. They are not awful, but they can be a bit of an annoyance, especially when I'm trying to drop someone off in the back, and the front door has to be opened in order for the people in the back to be able to exit the vehicle. Overall though, it's a very comfortable car, with pretty decent gas mileage. I would definitely recommend it to someone, even though they stopped making new versions. Definitely worth it to get a used one.

Honda element summary. Great cargo space and multi purpose vehicle,

I love the Honda element, overall engine size is good, heat and air are basic, stereo is undersized and needed an upgrade. Seats are missing the captain's chair arms, accessories are becoming increasingly harder to find, ability to fold seats and haul larger objects is the main thing I love about it. Its essentially a covered pick up truck. This is actually my second element, I keep saying its overall about 10% less quality than my original 2003. Doors, suspension, the feeling of driving it is just a bit less in quality overall. I really would hope they would see the value of this market and start making them again.
