Pros

If you love traveling the great outdoors and need a smart, affordable vehicle to transport you and your many pieces of gear without hassle, the Element will work for you.

Cons

New-age styling may not appeal to everyone. Also, there is no V6 option, and the Element's four-wheel-drive system is not designed for serious off-road adventuring.

What's New For 2007

The Element gains an additional 10 horsepower and receives side-impact airbags and stability control as standard equipment. The new SC trim makes its debut and features a sport suspension, 18-inch wheels and an upgraded interior. Also new for 2007 is an optional five-speed automatic transmission.

Used 2007 Honda Element Expert Review

Honda designed the Element to appeal to young male buyers. The original concept, in fact, was touted as a "rolling dorm room," designed to appeal to those with active lifestyles and a limited budget. Much to everyone's surprise, the Element not only hit its target audience, it picked up a number of unexpected buyers ranging from single moms to retired couples and everyone in between. The Element is attractive to these folks for a number of reasons. It's economically-sized yet large-cargo friendly, and the rear seats can be folded flat to create a two-person bed (though not a very comfortable one). The Element also gets good gas mileage, even when equipped with the optional four-wheel-drive system.

Driving the Used 2007 Honda Element

The Element's 2.4-liter engine is very smooth for a four-cylinder and quite strong for its size, with a good deal of torque for pulling and passing. The Element will easily cruise at 75 mph, and even accelerate up a highway grade in fifth gear. The Element's ride and handling characteristics are much more akin to an Accord sedan than a truck-based SUV.
Once we adjusted to the long dash and squared-off hood, we found it easy to dart in and out of traffic and to take sweeping curves and sharp turns with an easy confidence. The steering and brakes operate with precision and predictable response, returning excellent feedback to the driver under all driving conditions.

Favorite Features

Fold Flat Seats
The Element's fold-flat seats can be converted into a bed by removing the headrests and laying the seats flat and flush.

Worry-Free Interior
Waterproof seating materials and a urethane-coated utility floor give the Element a durable, easy-to-clean interior.

Used 2007 Honda Element Interior

From the dash-mounted shift lever to the fold-flat rear seats that can be flipped up and secured to the sides, the Element's interior is unlike anything else on the road. When the rear seats are flipped up on their sides, there's a cargo area large enough to place two upright-standing mountain bikes. The front seats feature integrated safety belts and are surprisingly comfortable. They are made of a durable, washable fabric that breathes nicely, a benefit on hot days. On LX and EX trims, the floor is covered in rubber-like urethane, not carpet, so it can be cleaned up easily. The SC model features carpeting in the passenger cabin, but not in the cargo bay.

Used 2007 Honda Element Exterior

Easily recognizable at any distance, the Element's boxy greenhouse, two-tone body panels and forward-opening rear doors are only some of its unique styling features. The unpainted plastic body panels of the LX trim level cleverly and conveniently avoid the issue of scratching the surface during such activities as loading bikes or skis onto the roof rack, or leaning equipment against the fenders. EX and SC models feature body-colored panels. The lack of a center pillar allows for large and bulky items to be loaded through the side doors, but the design precludes rear-seat occupants from exiting until the front doors are first opened.

Used 2007 Honda Element Standard Features

The Element features a five-speed manual transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, five cup holders, air conditioning, AM/FM stereo with CD, rear defroster, rear privacy glass, dual power side mirrors, cruise control, tilt wheel, rear wiper/washer, power windows, steel wheels, side-curtain airbags, front side-impact airbags and Vehicle Stability Assist. The EX trim adds alloy wheels and a 270-watt, seven-speaker sound system with CD/MP3 capability and an auxiliary input jack.

Used 2007 Honda Element Options

Options include Real Time four-wheel drive and a five-speed automatic transmission. Ordering the SC package adds 18-inch alloy wheels, a lowered sport suspension, Piano Black interior trims, custom cloth seats, carpeting, center console, projector beam halogen headlamps, a custom grille and custom-painted bumpers.

Used 2007 Honda Element Engine

Honda employs the excellent 2.4-liter in-line four-cylinder engine from the CR-V to serve duty in the Element. This is a strong four-cylinder engine with a surprising amount of low-end torque that translates into quick acceleration across intersections and capable passing power on the highway. Fuel mileage is on par with most small SUV's in this class and, considering the Element's boxy shape, roomy interior and large frame, that's a commendable achievement.

2.4-liter in-line 4
166 horsepower @ 5800 rpm
161 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 21/25 (manual), 22/27 (automatic), 21/24 (4WD manual), 21/26 (4WD automatic)

How Much Does the Used 2007 Honda Element Cost?

Like all Honda products, the Element offers few options. The front-wheel-drive LX has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $19,495, while the four-wheel-drive model starts at $20,895. The EX starts at $21,505 and the SC at $23,290. With any trim level, the automatic transmission adds $800 to the price. A look at the Fair Purchase Price page shows the typical transaction price paid for the Element in your area, so be sure to check it out before you begin negotiating. The Element is expected to hold excellent residual and resale values on par with the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, and better than the Jeep Liberty, Ford Escape and Nissan Xterra.

"Cant believe Honda stopped producing this vehicle"

Versatile, reliable, fun to drive
Get rid of the stock stereo
The 2010 Honda Element I own still performs like a brand new honda vehicle. The Element offers so much space and versatility while it seems like it drives itself. The 4 cylinder Vtech 2.4 liter engine allows for a enough power for a 4 and gives you the proper amount of acceleration on the highway when needed. Don't let the highway sherrifs know.. but my drive at 100mph on the freeway was still smooth and controllable. Feels like you only going 65mph at that speed. The side doors offer you almost full access to the entire vehicle, not only making this a versatile road trip vehicle, but a great vehicle for small business owners that want versatility and cargo maximization. The boxy cabin give you great views and tremendous space freedom! I plan on adding larger mud tires, roof, rack, to make this a little more rugged to take on road trips. I nicknamed the care the "party bus" added touch screen apple car play system that also enhance the sound from the speakers. The car is a great value and the value appears to stay strong on the used car market. Honda, please make a new version of the Element!!!Read less

"Very reliable"

Reliable, plenty of space, all around good vehicle
If I could put my best opinion of this car it is by far very reliable and versatile. Dosnt take much to keep the honda element running. As with any car, regular maintenance to keep in good shape. The AWD is similar to how Subaru works. Kicking in as needed. We had a big snow storm this year and we had no trouble getting around. With plenty of room and yes it is comfy for its size and shape. The turning radius is very good. I have seen people with over 325k miles and the car is still running. I'm am very impressed with this little suv.

"Great interior design"

Fun, versatile and its a Honda!
No inside release handle on back hatch.
The available seat configurations in this car is amazing. I have done four cross country trips in this car with the back seats removed and made into a mini-camper. Its really too bad they are not made anymore and that there is nothing on the market that match its versatility. Wish Honda would bring them back!
