"This is the best vehicle I have ever owned. The truck is huge inside and very comfortable. I get about 26 mpg. The satellite radio system and sound is unbelievable. The 4WD is great too."

"I bought my Element new in October '04. It has been a strong, faithful workhorse and a good commuter car. It's feels cheaper than the CR-V, but then again, it was. Seven-speaker stereo is awesome. The big four-banger gives it adequate power, but the bricklike aerodynamics hamper fuel economy, leading me to prefer our bullet train for medium-distance journeys. I had to have a squeaking suspension knuckle replaced under warranty, and I had the windshield and fender repaired when they were vandalized. Other than that, no problems, or even hints of problems, in 45,000 miles."

"I bought my Element new in 2004, a little over 3 years ago. People still stop me and ask to see inside and how I like it. It has been a very good vehicle. As an almost 60 yr old lady, the major downside is that I cannot get the back seats in or out myself. But, my Honda dealer gladly removes or replaces them for me at no charge. The cargo space is incredible and I love the fact that it has no carpet - so much easier to clean. I have back problems, and the seats are remarkably comfortable, all things considered. ! One repair problem. Recently, the odometer went out. It had to have a new instrument cluster and the actual mileage figure could not be retrieved, so it now has a sticker on the door frame stating mileage. Glad I took the extended warranty !!! Overall,It is definitely a "niche" vehicle that fills it's niche very well. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a lower priced SUV."
