    I Like It, It Does Everything I Need It To Do. — Very roomy, amazing what you can fit inside of it Makes a great car to camp out in..comfy seats The drivers seat neoprene is peeling at 45k miles :( good gas mileage awd is great on slick roads. For a EX Honda..seems kinda sparse on options, I want heated seats!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: You want good gas mileage lots of stoarge and light duty dirt road ability

    Cons: it looks like a toaster, limited ground clearance

    Boxyness — It's basically a camper. I love it. The quality of the engine is the best, but the interior is not bad either. I wish it could seat 5 instead of 4 and I wish the front had a sunroof as well as the back.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It gets me where I want to go, in usual box style

    Cons: only decent gas mileage

    Great For Tall People — Its a short and tall 4x4 plenty of head room, great gas mileage lots of room to carry things cause the rear seat fold up and they make a roof top camper for it for the 4x4 model only. And rubber floor mats you just hose it out and away you go.

    Pros: great for tall people

    Cons: none

    04 Honda Element — Does not have the bells and whistles like other cars of its class. However, its a solid build with 24-25 mpg Hwy, and 21-22 mpg mix. Great for camping, and pets. Love the roomy interior. No carpets = easy clean-up. There are only 2 things that needs to be improved: Bigger gas tank (250-260 Mile range), and more HP/Torque.

    Pros: great utilitarian

    Cons: needs more hp

    2004 Element — The features of this car are amazing. First off, the suicide doors are so handly getting a child into and out of a carseat, along with the rubber floor makes cleanup a breeze. The car has decent performance on flat land, struggles a little on hills. It's a fun car to drive, and well put together. I just wish the gas milage was a little better (21-24)

    Pros: Utility, function over form

    Cons: poor tourque, gas milage

    Pros: lots of room; the polyurathane floor is great to handle dirty/wet stuff

    Cons: none
