"For a four-cylinder, this car moves. It doesn't have the power for towing much, like a U-Haul, but otherwise it accelerates quickly, maneuvers great, and handles itself well in West Michigan snow. The EX has a great sound system, visibility fore and aft are great (sideways, especially through the rear passenger windows from the driver's seat, is not so great due to the pillars and headrests), front seats are comfortable (rear ones not so much), and cargo room with the seats out is fabulous. The rear passenger doors' opening the wrong way has been a pain--no advantage I can see. The over all Honda performance and reliability are the best. I need to get a bigger vehicle for towing, or I'd hang on to this forever."

Great value

"The Honda Element is great car, have a lot space inside. I like it. I have one since 2006. Now they were discontinued. Of course that's marketing, probably they return it in couple of years."

"I love my Element! It's fun to drive and easy to clean. It turns on a dime, so it's easy to maneuver and park. It holds a lot of cargo, and it's easy to load/unload items. The only thing that isn't my favorite is the "stadium seating" (in the rear) that require passengers to lean down to see out the windshield. I've looked at new cars but haven't found any I like as much as my Element! I wish they'd start making them again. Love the "suicide" doors (back door opens from front to back); Love, love, love the vinyl panels over the wheel wells; Love the rubber floor mats; Love that there isn't a lot of fabric to get dirty; Love the comfortable seats; Love the headroom - should I go on? This is a fabulous car!"
