Pros: "SMALL $'s GENEROUS INTERIOR INTELLIGENT DESIGN"

Cons: "HONDA DISCONTINUED PRODUTION OF ELEMENT"

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

"BOUGHT THIS 4 WHEEL DRIVE CAR NEW FOR 20K! I WANTED A DURABLE PRACTICAL CAR THAT WOULD HOLD UP TO BEING PARKED OUTSIDE FOR HARSH CHICAGO SEASONS. THIS ELEMENT PASSED WITH FLYING COLORS! NO RUST AND STILL BEAMS AFTER AN AUTOMATIC CARWASH. ROLLS OVER SPEED BUMPS AND THROUGH POTHOLES WITH BARELY SLOWING DOWN. THIS CAR FITS INTO TIGHT PARKING SPOTS WITH ONLY INCHES BETWEEN VEHICLES. WHEELS ARE PLACED AT OUTER EDGE OF CAR FOR SUPERIOR MANEUVERABILITY . HAS EXCELLED IN NAVIGATING URBAN OBSTACLES AND IS VERY COMFORTABLE ON LONG ROAD TRIPS. I HAVE BEEN SPOILED BY THE VALUE AND SENSIBLE DESIGN. I SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR A NEW CAR AS I NOW HAVE A HEATED GARAGE AND LOVE CARS. I CANNOT PART WITH MY ELEMENT. BEST CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED"

"I have owned this car since brand new and it is a jewel. I have kept up the maintenance so it is reliable and fun to drive. Last year I drove up into Oregon and Washington and it was great. My only regret was not having cruise control. I wish all cars were this reliable and fun to drive. Good gas mileage too!"

Cons: "None"

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

"I bought this car new in 2006 and I traded in a BMW 325 and this car is far superior to the Beemer. I drive it across the country once a year to California and average 26 MPG. You never get tired while driving long distances and I'm 78. Great view of the road and excellent visibility all the way around! I intend to keep this car as long as both it and I still am able to function. The car is bullet proof."

Pros: "comfy, semi reliable, lots of headroom"

Cons: "no legroom, expensive to fix, gashog"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Fairly reliable but an absolute gas hog If you can afford to stroke a check to the stealer-ship for its many mechanical quirks then great. If you do the work yourself even better. A few silly things...the alternator is on the bottom front, so though it will go through a deep puddle, it may cost you 150 bucks. There's about 8 things that make the shift lock engage...dealership has no good way to fix this and will fail...2 zip ties fix the issue forever"
