Looks small, feels big.
The Honda Element tries to tap into a variety in types. It has the structure to make the active/outdoor types happy. The roominess of the interior makes it ideal for camping, and also the seats have a variety of positions that let owners do different setups. when you step inside you'll be surprised by the interior space, the box design on the outside makes it look small and boxy. the suicide rear doors take some getting used to. the rear doors contribute to the shortened body, and it's a little funny when my friends try to figure out where the door handle is they first time they ride in it.
Amazingly Versatile Vehicle!
My Honda Element has been an amazingly versatile vehicle. It is great for city and highway driving. I have used it for camping trips, cross country trips and basic trips around town. The fold up back seats give the Element surprisingly large cargo capacity. It really is bigger on the inside! I am always amazed at how much I can fit inside. The Element handles great in rain and snow. I have been in some heavy Minnesota snow without ever getting stuck.
One of the greatest utilitarian feats in automotive history
When shopping for a new used vehicle, I was looking for something that could handle my lifestyle. As an avid mountain biker, dog owner, car camper, and dirt road user, I landed upon the Honda Element. The greatest thing about the vehicle is the utility. The floors omit carpet for easy cleaning, the seats are water and stain resistant, which is great for my stinky body after a day of mountain biking. The seats fold completely flat to sleep on- using just two camp pads, the car essentially turns into a roomy double bed for two people and a small dog. The seats can be folded up out of the way to add storage (an incredible amount of storage), as well as be completely removed if so desired. I personally tend to keep one side down for the random extra passenger and still enough room to put an entire bicycle inside without removing the wheels. The cabin is spacious and leaves me feeling claustrophobic in other vehicles. The stereo is really great, which helps for those long trips. A few caveats with the vehicle are the gas mileage isn't that best for such a wimpy drive train. The looks can be subjective- though I personally like it. Lastly, the ground clearance is way too low for exploring dirt roads or getting to trail heads in the mountains/desert.
