lots of space, good mileage

Cons

suicide doors

55

Buy It — The only thing i have peeves about is the suicide doors, other than that i love the car. You can vacuum the floors in a pinch, or even use a leaf blower. You cant hose down the inside, which wouldve been awesome if you could. The seats are waterproof and you can take the seats out or re arrange them so you have room without giving up all the seats and taking them out. Gas is 21/25, 4 1/2 hours on one tank full on highway for me. The car drives great, and its a honda so it will defiantly last.

Pros

Multi-functional, alot of room, good engin, gas saver, easy to clean

Cons

Not Just Another Box Car. — GREAT CAR! Plenty of room for the back row and even more space once the back seats are folded up. The power is great but when fully loaded the car does seem to be sluggish. But the car has enough power to still gun down on the freeway. The Element has plenty of functions and easy to take care of. The inside has a rubber floor mat that makes it easy to clean. Water proof floors, seats, and even truck. Also a gas saver, I have driven it for about a year now and get about 21 MPG driving from Oakland to Davis.

Plenty of interior space and rear seats can be removed to haul large item.

Cons

Suspention is a bit tight so it doesn't like speed bumps, rough roads or dirt roads.

I Took Me 6 Months Of Test Driving Suv's And Van's Before I Decided On This One. — The reason I purchased this Element was because I needed a new work van and I needed something that had more than two seats for the times I have my kids with me. The rear seats will fold up individually or can be removed to give more cargo space. This car looks small but I am always amazed at what will fit in this SUV. I have hauled a full sized refridgerator, stove, riding mower, kitchen cabinets and misc. furniture. I couldn't do any of that stuff with a Honda CRV the dealer was trying to sell me. It also has a 2" receiver and able to tow a 5' x 8' trailer loaded with lawn equpment. I no longer use the car for work, it has been cleaned up and now our family car.

Great Car. Would Be Fun To Modify And Take To The Track, Load Up Afterwards And Take Home. — The one-of-a-kind Element SC is the only SUV that can out corner any other vehicles in its class also shaped like a brick. Though the car only makes 166 bhp,the i-VTEC system gives you wicked pulling power from anywhere over 2500 to 5000 RPM. Stock tires are crap, change them immediately! Haul your friends in the backseat and watch their heads hit the roof as you go over speed-bumps with ease.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

the 2007 Element SC was about street custom (sc) unlike the prior year models. The headlamps also featured the halo halogen, and 2007 SC is the only Element year to carry that style of headlamps. The interior upholstery was customized, with some sort of tribal pattern. The gauges, and the Shifter were positioned the same as our 2003 EX-P. It still comes with lots, lots of interior space. Rear seats level horizontally, which our kids  liked to lay flat, on long trips.

Cons

Seats a family of 4, comfortably.(only) (SC) is not all terrain, tires wheels for the road. comes in FWD only. no AWD option.

Rootbeer Metallic — Great for the road, 4cyl I-Vtec, 07 model unique in its class. The first SC to be produced. It should have been called a Limited. Cargo space, space and more space! Rear seats are removable like most Elements, Fabric easy to clean, Bucket seating and Shuttle window views all around. Great for the road, not so much off road. Hold their market value well. We regret selling our SC.

Fun, Practical — This car is fun and roomy, I like the headspace and overall room. It's very comfortable on road trips, I've camped in it, the seats fold down into each other and make a bed. It's higher off the road so need to be more careful when turning, not like my old civic. Brakes were good, felt safe. Light for winter driving though, didn't do well in ice.

Pros

Cute, fun, and versatile. The Honda Element is not a fancy car, but can do just about anything a young active person could want to do. Great for commuting or going camping on the weekend, its feisty four cylinder engine produces surprising acceleration and performs well on suburban streets as well as the highway. The Element handles great, has a small wheelbase and is very responsive to the driver.
A generous backseat with fold up seats offers a surprising amount of cargo area when needed.
SInce its a Honda, reliability is off the charts. Not one mechanical issue with the car in over 7 years.

Cons

Interior is not fancy, rubber floor is very practical for an active lifestyle but isn't very stylish. Seats are firm and not over comfortable for long road trips over five or more hours.

Great Reliable Car For Active Lifestyle — I've had this car for seven years and it still has lots of life left in it. The Element is super reliable and is capable of performing just about any task you ask it to do. Great car for a young active lifestyle and can anything that young children can dish out.

Pros

I've had a lot a cars. Sports cars, Classics, so far it ranks the highest.  Most usable fun car you can own!

Cons

A pillars are huge & wind noise gets ugly high in 5th gear!  Not so great in the snow.

Do It! You Won't Regret It! Ever! — This is the Swiss Army knife of the small SUV's. The SC suspension & cab upgrade were well worth it. Seperates it from the normal looking Elements! Handles like a Civic, enough engine to get you anywhere in a hurry! Rowing thru the gears on the 5sp can get you into or out of trouble in a flash. I upgraded the brakes with and crossdrilled and slotted EBC's & Eibachs made this epic! The awesomeness of the transformer back seats can't be matched. Two 6 footers, 200lb'ers sit in the back no problems. It puts the FUN in functional! If the SC came in AWD I'd keep it forever!
