The solidness of the Element is substantial. It takes on hills and hairpin turns in all weather for my commute and doesnt miss a beat. Love the ease of back seats placement to on sides or easy removal. The cargo space is essential to me so big cudos.

Versitile — Upgraded from a Civic to this car. Great all around car. Can stop on the fly at garage sales and pick up furniture. Seats fold up toward the window or you can take them completed out. Great car to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable and excellent cargo capacity.
my friends loved the rear stadium seats

Cons: Steering was a bit tight.  Not too much power.

Flexible, Unique, Reliable, Spacious, Easy To Clean — Like utility and ease of holding things. Floor board is flat and seats lift up off the floor for storage. easy to drop a seat for third person when needed or fourth person. Lots of storage under rear seats and in center console. Lot of storage pockets. Wet proof seats. Can wash out the floor as there is no carpet. Easy to clean.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: utility

Cons: rear camber tends to be off and must add camber kit to fix it at $400 installed, mine has this now.

My Element — This is an entry suv kind of Honda. It does what I need it for, which is some hauling and space. I like the style a lot and reliability has been much better than my previous xb. Handling and gas economy is also a plus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good all around.

Cons: Stereo could be better.

Truly An All-purpose, Simple Utility Vehicle — Folding the rear seats up takes 5 seconds. Once folded up, there's a wealth of space, and it's FLAT. I've put so much in this vehicle: bicycles (without removing seats or front wheels), snow blower, full-size refrigerator, 4x10 sheets of drywall, concrete mixer, 7' Christmas tree, 20 bags of ready -mix concrete... list keeps going and going.

Pros: Tons of cargo space. Lots of utility. Easy to clean. Fenders won't ever rust. Maintenance cost is super, super low & reliability extremely high.

Cons: MPG isn't stellar. It's a little weak in power.
