Fixed Income--need To Sell — Exceptional all purpose vehicle! Great for back and forth to work---shopping and long distance traveling comfort. Easy removal of back seats for additional space.

Very Utilitarian — It works perfectly for me as I use it for commuting and also for construction work I do on the side. Holds a suprising amount of tools or my golf equipment and buddies on road trips, or for any trade, and it's easy to clean. Best overall car for my needs.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: very versatile and dependable

Cons: not the most handsome car

Great Car For Hauling Friends And Pulling The Boat To The Lake With The Dog In The Back. — Awesome car with moderate power, and decent gas mileage, with plenty of cargo space. The interior is very functional. Awesome stereo system that plays MP3 and a bass tube built into the dash. Great for hauling the dog around and bicycles in the back.

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

Pros: Plenty of cargo room.

Cons: Not a lot of power and gas mileage isn't too good 20MPG in town

We Love Our Element! : ) — We love our E. We just bought it off our lease and plan on keeping it for a long time. It is perfect for us. It is fun to drive, gets good gas mileage, and it reliable. I love the fact it has a tailgate to sit on when we go camping. Great for hauling stuff from Home Depot, taking the dogs for a ride, and even going on long trips with. There is generous leg room in both the front and back. My husband has named it Elton.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Solid reliable Honda.  Super flexible for hauling anything.

Cons: None.

Honda Element — There are only 2 things I can complain about are the vents on the dash above the radio there is no happy medium with were they blow. Also the strips that are between the windshield and the door jam is a blind spot. Other than that I would own nothing else. It is a awesome vehicle. It is the easiest vehicle I have had to keep clean is fun to drive and easy. The only way I would trade it in is if they come out with a hybrid.

Pros: easy to drive, keep clean, gas mileage is not bad,  many uses for the back.

Cons: vents on dash

05 Element. Heavenly — The Element is the best vehicle that I have ever owned! It is so unique. Roomy and fun. Incredible versatility with the seats, waterproof upholstery, good gas mileage. A cranking stereo system and a moonroof in the rear. I guess you can flip all the seats down and camp out in it under the stars and see them from the moonroof. And with AWD, surefootedness on the roads when it counts! It's so sexy too!

Pros: Roominess, MPG, versatility.

Cons: NONE

Stuff — Carries a lot of crap, including people. Has a large stage for the hula girl. Passengers in the back can see their lives flash before their eyes with much more clarity than most back seats. Can make it up my driveway, even in the rain. Gets poor gas mileage - big square block going down the road. Kind of slow.
