Honda Element is award winning

2010 Honda Element LX

This vehicle is wonderful! The gas mileage is decent, and I live how smooth the car drives in all kinds of weather. It has many safety features and fits our family of three plus our dog absolutely perfect! It really is the perfect size for our family. It's not too big or not too small. I like how the doors are unique in how they open, and it is quite roomy. There are options to move the seats to make even more room! I have always loved Honda's but I have to say that the Honda Element is probably my favorite car that I have owned so far, because of the size, safety, amenities, and the quality. I have owned many cars in my lifetime but I have to say that owning a Honda absolutely sets my mind at ease because of the superior quality of the brand. Not only that but these cars last forever! Thy literally keep going and going! With every Honda I have ever owned, each one has literally continued running way past it should have! I have put literally thousands upon thousands of miles on each and every one of my Honda's, and they just continue going and going! You are getting so much bang for your buck with the high end brands such as the name Honda.

Honda element, the best of the box shaped cars if you love to travel w/dogs!

2010 Honda Element

I love that there's no carpet to vacuum or keep clean especially since I live at the beach & have 2 dogs that love to get wet & sandy! The material the seats are made out of is practically water resistant & if it does get damp it dries really fast. I like how much room there is in the back & both seats lay back & fold up making it completely open. . . Enough space to sleep back there if necessary. When traveling long distances w/2 dogs they're much more comfortable like that. The way the doors open up across from each other is great if no cars are parked next to you. My only complaint is the doors & that is only when cars are next to you & you must open the front door before the back door can be opened & then you are stuck between the 2 doors in a box if a car is beside you. Other than that I love it!

The good, the bad, and the ugly.

2010 Honda Element

My car is very gas efficient, and I'd like to think it is pretty reliable. The main thing I do not like about it are the back doors. You have to open the front ones first to open the back doors. And you have to make sure the back doors are closed first before you can close the front doors. Also, because the back seats are technically on the same floor as the trunk, it is more elevated than the front seats, but you cannot really see out the windows.
