2004 Honda Element

There seems to be great diversity in consumer opinion when characterizing automobiles. The 2004 Honda Element does not escape this inconsistency, yet at the same time nearly everyone provides a high overall rating.

There is definitely a preference for the 4 WD version over the front-wheel drive package. Everyone finds cleaning the interior to be extremely easy. Other comments about the interior range from cavernous to not large enough, and relaxing to not so comfy.

In the end however, it is a Honda - affordable, economical, practical yet fun to drive.
