2003 Honda Element Overview

Introduced in 2003, the Honda Element is a cross between compact/economy car and SUV. Although it has many of the conveniences of other SUVs, this one only seats four people. As with any new vehicle, customer reviews are mixed. User opinions of the Element range from comfortable and roomy, to not as much space as may appear. While many drivers like the look of this car, there are others who find the boxy look rather hideous, although as one driver said," it grows on you."

Those who drive the car say it handles extremely well, although there are many complaints about the windshield and its propensity for cracking for no apparent reason. In fact, one person said she loved the car, but couldn't afford the windshield deductible.

Available for $14,150 and under.
