2005 Honda Element

Ever since the Element was first introduced, there has been a discrepancy between "expert" opinion of this car and the owner evaluations. The 2005 Honda Element is no exception.

Experts don't like the outside design, while drivers think it is sporty looking. Everyone agrees, however, that it has lived-up to the Honda legacy which, of course, is affordability, reliability, and great economy. It's also easy to drive, dependable, and practical.

At $16,600 to $18,500, it certainly is much less expensive than other SUVs.
