    If You Don't Car About Power Then This Car Is It. — One hell of a quircky car but it does everything we need. has a lot of space and if it were to come in a v6 we would definetly get another one of those. Its amazing all that you can do with that car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: lots of space

    Cons: small ebgine

    Elements Pretty Much Rock — I wish it sat a few more people, but that would kinda defeat the purpose I guess. Its great w/kids, I can get my son in and out so easily. The back seat rides comfortably for short rides, but gets a bit uncomfortable for long distances. Overall, I love it!

    Pros: The whole side opens up.

    Cons: It only seats 4.

    The Element Is Great! — I love everything about the inside of the car. All the seat configurations make hauling things easy. And the back seats are cool because it is like theater seating and you can see over the people in front and also have plenty of leg room.

    Pros: Everything about the car!

    Cons: Gas mileage 21-22 MPG (but what do you expect), maybe a bigger engine

    A Wolf In Geek's Clothing — Great Utility vehicle for those who arent planning to drive to Kilomanjaro. Solid Fuel Economy, Amazing handling for a chassis thats 3000 lbs and as aerodynamically challenged as this. Headroom is awesome, as is rear passenger space. Can fit 4 6-footers in this baby with no complaints. Only knock I can think of isnt really a knock - The shape and design is not for everyone. It's truly a love it or hate it car.

    Pros: Great Headroom, great fuel economy for car which that much space, surprisingly nimble

    Cons: Can't beat  a porsche off the line? Design not for everyone.

    Ultimate Utility Sport/car Ever — This is a 2008 Honda Element Ex 4wd. I purchased this car in Oct. It features clamshell side and rear doors. The rear seats can be layed back then folded up onto either wall so the entire floor can be used, or you can take the rear seats out all together. The front seats can also fold flate with the rear seats and be used as a bed. There is a rear sunroof that pops open or comes out all together.Flooring is a rubber based material. I could go on for ever.

    Pros: Awesome car i love.

    Cons: none

    Best cargo space for a compact SUV. I removed the rear seats and the cargo space is cavernous! Suicide doors add character. Maintenance... Its a Honda!
    Front Seats Ranked 2016 BMW 2 Series M235i better.
    "Ummmmm... that should be obvious"
    Would Buy Ranked 2016 BMW 2 Series M235i better.
    "Pure FUN factor"
