Good Utility Vehicle — lots of room inside with a small exterior size. Fits 4 large people comfortably and is very dependable. Lives up to what you would expect from a Honda as far as build quality, fit and feel as well as drive quality

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

My Box On Wheels For All The Outdoor Gear Schnard — A great, reliable vehicle for hauling around all of my sports paraphernalia (bikes, skis, fishing poles, ...) that gets great mileage. She does feel a bit tippy at times, but sure-footed in the snow and rain. People think that I have my head hanging out the window when talking on the mobile:)

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

Pros

Great car for anyone that likes a car that looks good and versatile depending on your needs and what you need to do.

Cons

It got keyed and has minor damage to the left front bumper.  Someone backed into it.  Thought about having it fixed.

Honda Element With Style — I love this vehicle, its a great passenger car that has lots of cargo space. Smooth riding and very quiet on the road, you wouldn't even know its running. Appearance is classy, body is all one color. It has the best stock sound system.

Pros

Tons of room!  And their's more room in the back seat than in the front.  XM radio!

Cons

It looks like a toaster and the gas mileage is mediocre, at best.  It's a bit spartan, and on long trips the front seat gets a bit uncomforatble.

I Kinda' Sorta' Love My 2007 Element Ex — My son's 2000 Civic blew up and it would cost more to fix it than it worth. I am going to hand my 2007 Element to him so he can get to school. I do so with a heavy heart, because that car has been so much fun to own and drive.

Honda Element = Great Vehicle — Plenty of room for the two kids, their toys/books, plus groceries or whatever else I am running around to get. The space for the two car seats in the rear seat is awesome with additional space for a bin of toys between.

Love It! — Great for adventure. Lots of configurations for the seats. Good acceleration, all wheel drive so no messing with chains in the mountains. Good gas mileage. I got the tangerine one and just love the color. You should get one for camping.

Pros

handling, fun, inexpensive, super reliable

Cons

its ugly

35

My Ugly Awesome Car — - it is indeed kind of ugly, however the space & options that the shape affords is great. - the gears are slightly funky, way too much torque for such a light car (its hard to Not peel out in second gear) but the top gears are a bit low. - it is very fun to drive and handles much better than a box on wheels should. - besides a factory recall (technical service bulletin) on the instrument pannel, the bulid quality is fantastic. -i really really wish that the rear window rolled down. with the two rearseat windows only being van-style, theres not nearly enough air flow in the back of the car. -it is however a small room, take out the back seats & put in a bed!

My Orange Toaster — Well to tell you the truth I really really do not like this car! It doesn't accelerate, it doesn't stop, it doesn't turn, and gas mileage is not a word in it's vocabulary. in terms of usability however it's great, you can fit almost anything in the back of it (the usual for my family is 13 bails of shavings.) Thus far the car has not been a hassle to repair the rear brakes just went at 50,000 miles but apart from that nothing has broken. Thats really all i have to say about it.
