"Since I purchased my Element in 2003, I have driven to Prudoe Bay, AK, Key West, FL, Death Valley and Pike's Peak all w/out any problems at all. I have taken out the back seats and purchased a custom 6" foam mattress for the back where I sleep very comfortably on long trips. I would highly recommend this vehicle for people who like road trips."
"I bought this car new. I have never had any problems with it. I changed the oil every 3,000 miles and had new brakes and tires at 75,000. My only regret is that they no longer make the Element. This car is the best car I have ever owned."
Pros: "fun to drive, easy cleaning, ample storage or carg"
Cons: "it's a box - when windy it gets blown around a bit"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This Element has lots of interior room. The back seats are a little higher than the front so the rear passengers have a good view out the front windshield. No carpet means easy clean-up! The rear seats fold up on the sides in seconds to give ample room for hauling or storage. I SCUBA dive so it's perfect for wet gear! The only two things I don't care for is in a high wind it is a little hard to control on the interstate at speed and the front windshield is vertical enough to crack more easily if a rock hits it. Milage around 22mpg in the city, 24 on the road. Overall? Funtastic!"
"If you are considering an Element??---give it a shot....it is one of most versatile vehicles I have owned....you can load it up/keep it protected inside & then rinse it out with no issues!!....it looks boxy(it is) but, fun to drive & very useful....give the box a chance....Honda needs to bring it back!!"
