Never thought we'd buy one.... but we did

We bought the 2007 LE fully loaded midnight blue with the black fenders. We LOVE the look off this car and we love the black fenders. They help knock off small rock and road debris that would normally scratch a car, but these wonderful fenders are the best. They match the window/rain guards perfectly. My wife says with all the acessories on this car it looks alot like the SUV version of the "batmobile" we get constant compliments and it is so fun to drive! buy one now and pimp it up... there is so much you can do with this car, oh by the way it has a racing air intake and other modifications so it really takes off! The most fun we've ever had with a car.

We purchased the 2007 Honda Element SC used from an individual 3 months ago. The car had 85000 miles on it. The SC is the highest trim package offered in the Element. On the positive side, the styling is "cool" and the room and functionality of the interior is very nice. The rear seats fold up in such a way that you almost have a small box truck to haul light cargo. The interior is cool and the instrument panel is almost futuristic looking. The standard MP3 input is a real bonus. The sound system is very very good for a factory sound system. Turning radius is the best I've ever seen. Honda quality and almost zero fear of ever having a break down really rounds out the positives. On the down side, the SC is the best interior package, but the SC does not even have the option of a sunroof?? The headlights do not turn off or on automatically and that is just strange to me that in 2011 Honda would omit that feature?? The ride is a little rough and a little loud, however, since this is my daughter's car, she doesn't even notice that. I would definitely recommend this model to someone that is younger or doesn't mind the road noise.

SC turns heads!

by from Saratoga Springs, NY on May 3, 2008

I have the SC version - manual 5 speed - VERY peppy - 0 - 70 before I get off the entrance ramp on the highway! I'm 6' 3" and have plenty of head room. Leg room is just right and with cruise control no problems on trips. The SC doesn't have the ugly black fenders - it is all one color (Mine is "Root Beer") with a deluxe interior that is dark brown with embossing on the seats and side panels. We went to a car show and the ticket person came up to us and took a step back and asked if we were visiting or in the show. Very cool five spoke wheels add to the sporty look. With more of a sports car suspension system and beefier engine my Element feels like driving a sports car not a very versitile truck/van. I've brought 2 x 4s home from Home Depot and huge sheets of insulation (the pink styrofoam type) all inside the vehicle! At 50 the joke is that most men either want a sports car or a girl friend. I told my wife she has nothing to worry about - I've got my sports car (that I call my "girl friend").

Honda Element "The Tough Versatile All Fun" car!

I was quite surprised with the Honda Element. My husband convinced me to just try it for one year. Three years later (60,000 miles), I wouldn't dream of getting rid of it. We live in the midwest in the country and it handles well in all weather. This year we tested its ability to get through snow drifts...it was awesome...and got both my husband and I to school. (Our truck got stuck...never would have thought that would have happened.) Overall, I love my Element. It handles well in small towns and large cities, on country roads and interstates, and gets good gas mileage. The only thing I wish was better would be the quality and comfort of the seats. I have nicknamed my Element "BlueBird of Happiness." It makes me happy to drive.

I appreciate the thought that went into the design of this car. We took it on a bike trip last week. Both of our road bikes fit inside without taking the wheels off. We even got a third bike in one day by removing it's front wheel. There was no problem fitting in suitcases, backpacks, and extra bags too. We still had plenty of room to spare! The seats were folded up to the sides, which is easy to do. The trip was about 1000 miles, and we got between 26-28 mpg! We weren't expecting that good of mileage. It does only seat four. It is super easy to clean out with the rubber flooring. If you do lots of outdoor activities, and can find one, I highly recommend it

My wife and I own a West Virginia mountain cabin and need 4 wheel drive to get up our driveway. While the Element does not have great ground clearance, when it is not "high-centered," it will go thru almost everything. Decent fuel economy (24 to 27 mpg). Good reliability. Great interior space, especially if you are hauling dogs Couple of negatives: moderately noisy; top-heavy; and front windshield seems to attract rocks.

my hubby actually bought this car for him but I loved it so much I now drive it. This car was a used one but has been great. I have dogs and very handy and make frequent trips to Nashville from Iowa, front seats are comfy and got 25 mpg all the way there with air on the whole way. We are looking for another one for my husband. :)

Extremely versitile little worker bee.

This is the perfect back-up family car. Our primary is a mini-van which my wife drives. The Element is my drive-to-and-around-work car and sometimes doubles as the back-up family car. It's versatility makes it perfect for this. It's easy to clean and extremely quick to modify if I have to move something big either at home or at work. I don't have to drive long distances so can't comment on the fuel consumption, but knowing that it's a low emission vehicle helps me sleep at night. This little guy is perfect for my needs.
