Pros

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

Cons

only decent gas mileage

25

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

great for tall people

Cons

none

Great For Tall People — Its a short and tall 4x4 plenty of head room, great gas mileage lots of room to carry things cause the rear seat fold up and they make a roof top camper for it for the 4x4 model only. And rubber floor mats you just hose it out and away you go.

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.

Utility, function over form

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)

Should Work Good For Rural Mail Delivery & Highway. By Kathy566

Just drove my suv home. Handles well, quiet, well built, & fun! Radio has good sound. Versatile seats allow for cargo. Tailgate will allow long items to hang out like a pick-up truck. Read More
