Pros: "Reliable, fun to drive, looks different,;"

Cons: "none"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Bought it new in 2007. Has been very reliable and holds its value. Looks different, but still gets looks after all these years. Fun to drive despite of its tall height. Very practical with its clamshell doors and hatch, and foldable, removable rear seats."

Why did they stop making this AWESOME car!?!

Pros: "Great visibility, durable, practical and FUN!"

Cons: "Its sinful how much I enjoy my Element"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Great visibility - you can see everything; no blind spots. Durable - love the floor mats, never worry about a spilled drink again. Short wheelbase - fits in any parking spot, even the short ones and so easy to parallel park. Its crazy how much space there is on the inside! I am telling you, it an optical illusion! High windshield - I'm tall and its nice to see every stoplight without slumping. My 2004 Element had a higher windshield than my current 2008 Element, and I miss that. But still lovin' my ride! Nice wheels, super-responsive all-wheel-drive and wicked sound system."

Pros: "Fold up back seats are amazing."

Cons: "Interior finishes scratch easily."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. It is great for traveling (you sit up high and it has great window views.) The 4-wheel drive is great in the winter on Michigan roads. The lack of carpet and fold up back seats make it perfect for hauling everything from grand dogs to a washing machine. My only two suggestions: lower back seats for a better view while riding and use a different material on the interior so that it doesn't scratch so easily."

It's the automotive equivalent of a Timex watch.

"Owned this car for 10 years, and it just keeps going. No repairs ever warranted other than wearing out drivers seat. Consistently gest 25 mpg. Honda needs to bring this vehicle back. Durable and reliable. 4WD system at high elevations in snow & ice - INCREDIBLE."

"Drives very well. Loads of storage in trunk area plus back seats store up for more. Rear seats are higher so back seat passangers have better view.No major repairs have ever been needed."

Pros: "Handles like a tank in our winter weather..GREAT."

Cons: "If you're looking for fancy...this is not your car"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I always wanted a Hummer (or thought I did). This was as close as I could get and afford. Well, let me tell you, this has been one of the most enjoyable vehicles I have ever owned (and I'm 78 yrs. old). It suits my every need and I have always had complete confidence taking it on the road. (I drive very often from Wis. to IL).May not be for everyone but I absolutely love it."
