It's our 3rd one and the best
Please see my previous comments.
Best car I've ever driven
Pros: Too many to list!
Cons: The radio shuts off with the engine.Average fuel economy which is acceptable for a small SUV. versatile, roomy and comfortable, low maintenance. Should I choose to replace my 2008 CR-V it will be only for a newer CR-V. The only improvements I could ask for are more versatile sun visors and for the radio to continue playing a few minutes after turning off the engine.
Fun to drive
Cons: bumpy ride sometimesOwned my Element for a year now. Have had no problems. An all around fun truck to drive. Has alot to offer.
The Best All-Weather Any Adventure 4X4 SUV
Pros: Instrumentation Placement-Perfect
Cons: Uncomfortable Seats/Suspension to StiffA blast to drive. Brings an automatic smile to ones' face, As soon as you hit the driver's seat and put her through the pace. She handles like a high performance automobile, with plenty of power, when you need it. Holds the road and corners like on rails, gotta try it to feel it. No matter mud, rain, ice, or snow, the Element AWD 4X4s, the way to go.Waterproof-Stainproof floor and seats to boot. Skiis,to two Mtn. bikes, just flip up the seats, throw'em in, no hoot. Need a nap, flip em, down flat, the 4X4 Element's still where it's at.
Cons: rough rideexcellent miles per gallon
Pros: 4- wheel drive
Cons: cost & honest salesmen.This Element being the second Element that my has owned tells you that it is a great car as my wife says. Lots of room, engine needs help with a few more HP. Tows good, Moon roof is questionble. My wife would rather it was not there. A great winter car. likes the seats that raise to the sides. Front seat not as durable as she likes and short on comfort for the cross country ride. Buy your towing hitch from UHaul half the cost of Honda. Some Honda dealers will try to get more money from with cheap things add to your car. Etching the window, a alarm system, shine on you car, scot guard for the interior and many more useless items that they charge an outrageous price for. I have not met an honest salesman or finance manger. But back to the Element, my wife says that if she gets another car it will be another Element. The car can also be fitted with a whee lchair lift.
