Amazing storage capacity!

My Honda element is reliable, gets very good gas mileage, has a huge storage capacity, and is very easy to clean. The way the front and back doors open allows cargo to be loaded from the side or from the back, and you can flip the rear seats up and off the floor, so you do not have to take them out to haul larger item. It also has removable floor mats instead of carpet, so cleaning is very easy.

Spacious vehicle! Saves gas!

I like it because it has a lot of space, you can make the seats in form of a bed in case you want to go to the drive in movies, this car is perfect for that, or if you want to go camping as well. You can also put the back seats up to the side that way you have space to carry like small furniture or other things. The only issue is that it is only for 4 passengers, otherwise it's a great car!

The Honda element is a utilitarian vehicle with many features.

The Honda element is a very utilitarian vehicle. Mine has plastic flooring, completely removable back seats, and is much larger inside than it looks. It has enough horsepower to get going pretty fast but not enough to race. This car would be a perfect first vehicle. Because it is a little boxy, this car is incredibly easy to park. It will just swing into most available parking spots.
