    Car is a good value however the radio did not work. I found out minutes after purchase because I had to call Honda for the code. Once I got the code no sound. I was very disappointed. I made a case deal and was crushed. I am hoping the dealer can fix this problem.

    Hands down most functional vehicle around. 16 yrs and 150k miles in it runs and looks like new. Inside and out. Honda quality.

    The plusses; Its a good design, lots of space for all the passengers inside, with a very easy to clean interior. The seats all fold flat for a large sleeping area or the rest seats fold against the wall for an impressive amount to space for the footprint. Perfect for active, outdoorsy types. The problems: Very few power options,. Only the front windows roll down, the rear and sunroof (if equipped) only open on a latch. The rear seats are not next to the rear windows. I cant imagine spending any time in them would be enjoyable. All in all its a good fit for an active single or couple, not a family vehicle.

    The Element is bullet proof. I bought a new EX AWD in 04. today it has 190,000 miles on it and going strong. the most versatile car I have ever owned. Oh yea, I bought another one yesterday . Same exact car, with 80,000 less miles. I love these cars.

    I Like It — I like the space in this honda. It drives nice too.. The best car I have ever had. It needs to have different back windows. You cant open them enough for ait flow and for my dog. The sunroof dosnt open anymore then 2 inches so we dont even use it at all. But it would be nice to open it all the way without taking it all out and spending time doing that. The doors need to be made so the front doors dont have to open first. I have to unbuckle then open the door so the person can get into the back and get out.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great for dogs.

    Cons: getting into the back seat. the back doors.

    Excellent Honda Element Ex Awd — Great car for all walks of life. If your an outdoors person or just a person who needs to get around town this is a great car for you. With a 270 watt stereo, real time four wheel drive, and plenty of cargo room for almost whatever you need to move you will be moving in style!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fuel economy, Great in all weather conditions, plenty of cargo room

    Cons: No real cons its a Honda!

    Utilitarian features: rubber flooring, fold up or removable rear seats, rear area can hold almost anything! Plus I love the boxy design and suicide doors! Wish Honda would start making it again! Read More

    Except for being under-powered, Element is great car. Most for sale have 150,000 miles or more on them. This one is priced more like a Porsche than a Honda. Read More

    There is body damage on all four sides of the car. When I mentioned that to the salesperson, she said she couldn’t see it. The car is way overpriced for needing significant bodywork . Read More
