Great feature: seats can be removed with ease!
I just purchased the vehicle two months ago used. I purchased it based on the fact my girlfriend owned one since 2004 and has 240,000 miles on her car and it is so reliable! And going strong! My car was owned by one owner and had at time of purchase 165,000 miles. She never had anything big to replace. Just the regular maintenance that you do with Honda and oil change/rotate tires, etc.. What really appeals to me is the storage capability. The back seats can be completely removed and stored and you can pack this car full! That sold me right there! In addition, I had been driving for work a Chevy traverse and got use to the bells & whistles especially the cameras to back up and see where you are when parking. The Honda dealership was able to put in my Honda element a new Audio system with the capability of seeing when I back up. In a nutshell, the car just makes me happy when I drive it. The boys that I babysit cannot stop talking about how cool my car is. When sitting in the back it is extremely spacious. I just wish they didn't stop making them.
