"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."

Pros: "Too many to mention."

Cons: "Sight lines."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This car was driven as our main transportation 70+ miles five days a week to and from work and on weekends for errands. Great in snow (we live at 8,500 feet), unbelievable pickup going uphill and with the manual transmission, easy to keep speeds from accelerating downhill (plus too much wear on brakes). The best thing about the Element, though, is that we have been able to haul a 200 pound goat to the vet, get 10 bales of hay into it when the truck didn't start and, in separate trips, haul to shearing two angora goats, a merino sheep (driving Miss Daisy) and three alpacas, one riding shotgun. For a dependable farm vehicle, the Honda Element just can't be beat. They may look like toasters on the outside, but inside, they are as big as boxcars."

Pros: "Fun to drive, versitile, easy to keep clean, handy"

Cons: "seats don't hold up"

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

"Element gets good gas mileage. 4 cylinder is very peppy, but don't try to pull a lot of weight with it. Mine has had no major problems. In the last 2 years, I've had to do plug wires and other minor things. I like that I can sleep in it when camping. I can use the tent for storage. Been a great car for me. I would buy another if they still made them. My only downside is the seats did not hold together well."
