My Element — This car/ small SUV is perfect for us, especially with all of the space that it has inside. The negative is that it only seats 4, but we don't need anymore than that. I would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a small SUV especially an import like Honda or Toyota.

Pros: Space

Cons: Gas mileage, 20 around town.

Need Vs. Want — Exactly what I need rather than what I WANT. Extraoridinarily low maintenance and good MPG for something shaped like an ice cream truck. (27 mpg.) The dogs like it. Road noise at highway speeds high. Rear seats fold flat against sides of vehicle yielding a very tall and relatively deep cargo area.

Pros: Maintenance, cost of ownership.

Cons: Road noise

Very Fun And Gas Friendly Min Suv — Fully loaded....added extra features to it to make it fully loaded. Fog lamps, AM/FM CD XM stereo with 5 speakers. The seats are easy to take out. It is very easy to clean the floor and seats. Very good on gas. It's a fun car to drive. You can get the car in two forms with or with out...side pannel in grey and black for that sport look. You can buy it with a sunroof and a rack on top. I love that you have an outlet to play your mp3 on your system, it is so cool.

Pros: Easy to clean, good gas millage, fun to drive,good stereo system, reliable.

Cons: More speakers in the back, lol.

Multi Use Vehicle — Love it! room for my dog... room inside for my bike and my dog... great car to camp in! love how the back seats can fold up or taken out! comfy for travelling.

Pros: lots of room in the back for sporting goods and seats fold back nicely to make a bed to camp in. Seats fold up against wall if needed. Very comfy

Cons: all wheel drive only kicks in when needed... not needed too often. I didn't get the sun roof option:-(

53 Cases Of Beer, One Car. Awsome — This is perhaps the most spacious vehicle of its size as well as having far better performace than a passerby would ever think.

Pros: It will break 120 despite carrying a full load and being aerodynamicly challanged.

Cons: Gas milage

Swiss Army Knife Of Cars — This car hits the sweet spot for me, One of the drop down questions on this survey is "What did you mainly use this car for?"...I could check all of the options (commuting to work, family transportation, recreation, and utility)...that's what makes this car so nice. Commute to work -easy to park, great stereo, excellent visibility, better than Truck/Large SUV gas mileage, drives fine at 75, kick ass stereo Recreation -throw bikes in the back, day at the beach (no sand in the carpet), Camping, Kids games Around the House - Hauls to the Dump, Runs to Home Depot, picking up large items at garage sales/craigs list, pets to the vet There's nothing like it on the road today, for a niche car it definetly does many things very well. The ride is harsher and there is more outside noise than my 04 Camry, but these shortcomings are a result of the functional design.

Pros: Cargo Space, Utility, AWD, Reliability, Easy Care, Uniqueness, Go anywhere, Handling, Corners very well for a tall vehicle, Sunroof, Stereo.

Cons: Only 4 passengers, Wind/Road noise, only tows 1500 lbs

Fun, Versatile Vehicle! — I love this car for its laid-back and versatile use. It has been a wonderful, dependable vehicle. It is inexpensive to have dealer work done on it. Very adaptable and if you enjoy a vehicle with lots of uses, this is it. I once loaded a wall oven in the back of it, not just any vehicle can do this. The back seats fold up or are removable for lots of cargo space.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I love my Element. It is the first car I've had that I have wanted to keep forever. It is paid off and I still love it! This is a great car for tall people: lots of headroom and back seat has lots of leg room.

Cons: luxury is not high on the Element's list of positives. It is a utility car for sports (bikes, camping). Seats are not the most comfortable but I can live with that. It only seats four people.

One Of The Best! — We have had this car for about 3 years now. It has been nothing but reliable. We have had standard things done to it, and it is plugging away. There is hardly any need to own a truck when you have an Element, and when you don't need to carry anything around with you it very comfortable to ride in. Defiantly not a luxury vehicle, but has everything to make it enjoyable for long road trips or to go down the block to the market. When people ask us if we like our Element, there is not hesitation and we say "absolutely, would trade it for a million years"!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: So much room! We have literally carried a washer and dryer (in the boxed) home from the appliance store in the back.
Easy to clean! With the utilitarian interior, it is a breeze to clean, and holds up great with pups.
Flip up seats! Put them up and you can carry anything you need to (rototiller, kennels, moving boxes.    

Cons: Back doors are a little inconvenient when getting out of the back seat in a parking lot (but great when you have lots of room).

No Frills Ride But Gets It The Job Done In A Very Coool Style. — I love my Ele! Such a cool lil fella. lol It is the PERFECT ride for dog lovers like us! Very useful ride. I love the steering controls for the stereo. We got all the camping gear but dont use it now. Visability is the best! I wish they had put heated leather seats in them. WHY did Honda discontinue this vehicle? It's the most versatile ride out there!!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cool looking, fun, versatile, dependable, AWD, Sirius XM, steering wheel controls, love the color green! Excellant for taking on big buying trips, can hold a ton of stuff and several large dog crates with gear bags, water jugs, cooler, chairs, on and on!

Cons: Seats should have been avail in leather or fake leather. It doesnt handle well with much weight in it, windshield is like a fly swatter.
