Weird, But Awesome — Room for everything and stadium seating! Being able to hose it out is a plus...

Cons

poor tourque, gas milage

2004 Element — The features of this car are amazing. First off, the suicide doors are so handly getting a child into and out of a carseat, along with the rubber floor makes cleanup a breeze. The car has decent performance on flat land, struggles a little on hills. It's a fun car to drive, and well put together. I just wish the gas milage was a little better (21-24)

Element — This has been a great car. Bought to transport my Great Dane in. I now need a small car. No major repair problems. Great car for dog owners. Great for traveling, can sleep in back if you get caught camping in the rain.

Pros

It gets me where I want to go, in usual box style

Cons

only decent gas mileage

Boxyness — It's basically a camper. I love it. The quality of the engine is the best, but the interior is not bad either. I wish it could seat 5 instead of 4 and I wish the front had a sunroof as well as the back.

Pros

great utilitarian

Cons

needs more hp

04 Honda Element — Does not have the bells and whistles like other cars of its class. However, its a solid build with 24-25 mpg Hwy, and 21-22 mpg mix. Great for camping, and pets. Love the roomy interior. No carpets = easy clean-up. There are only 2 things that needs to be improved: Bigger gas tank (250-260 Mile range), and more HP/Torque.
