Advice: Test drive, buy fog lights and all weather floor mats (makes floor not slippery)This car rocks! I'm 16 and this is the best car that you can get if you want functionability. It rides well but a little bumpy. Drives and handles excellent on dirt roads. 4wd is excellent in the snow and rain. Headlights are fantastic and I recommend to buy the fog lights. Great addition to the car for rain and snow.
Pros: Outstanding interior room, great mileage, Honda quality, and great handling.
Cons: Power is adequate for the size of vehicle, but a V-6 or Turbo-4 would be a nice option.
Advice: Drive it...Explore it...You will love it.This Honda Element is definitely a vehicle that adapts to all seasons and all lifestyles. I have never owned a more versatile vehicle. I must admit that of all the vehicles that I have owned, this Element has the features that can accomodate any lifestyle. The vehicle is designed to allow 4 adults to ride in comfort with limo style leg room for rear seat passengers. The Honda Element can transform quickly from a people hauler to a vehicle that can carry a large load like a enclosed pick-up truck. Interior headroom is more than substantial and carrying tall items is done with ease due to the high roof-line. I didn't fall in love with it until I drove it and then I was sold. I encourage anyone seeking a SUV with great fuel economy to drive this vehicle because it really does grow on you. The grade-logic transmission never leaves you searching for power even on grades. There is so much that this vehicle has to offer in a smaller package. If you are an active adult that enjoys life and what it has to offer, the Honda Element makes a great companion.
