2004 Honda ElementVisitor, Apache Junction, AZ, January 18, 2014 19:46120,000 miles on my beloved 2004 stick-shift element. LOVE IT. Had the reported issues but were fixed easily. Love that I can roll my bicycle into the back without taking a wheel off. GREAT storage, seats really comfortable. Just a little rough riding, but hey, it's not a luxury car and I don't want one of those. Hubby wants me to get a new car. I will when Honda starts making the element again or I find a car that does the same.
2004 Honda ElementVisitor, Sarasota, FL, September 17, 2013 13:38Now 36,000 miles on my 2004 Element. I've left its wheels covered while I travel by RV during the Summer. But after one month of unprotected storage with heavy summer rainfall, my rear passenger side calipers have frozen, requiring a complete brake overhaul costing $600. One other quirk, the spare tire was found to be surrounded with water--probably due to simple condensation over a two year period.
2004 Honda ElementVisitor, Quincy, MA, March 03, 2012 14:4350k on Element 4th set of rear Brakes twice they were completely destroyed due to Binding calipers etc. Whn is someone going to take care of this issue with the design. By the way Rear brakes should nver go before front brakes
2004 Honda ElementVisitor, Sarasota, FL, December 08, 2011 11:06Only 29,000 miles so far. Located in Florida. Replaced rear brake disks 3 times under three year warranty. Fronts still o.k. Brake disks need to be covered during storage in wet humid conditions. Master brake cylinder replaced for $360. Idle control valve replaced at 20,000 miles $263. Still love my Element.
2004 Honda ElementVisitor, Jackson, MI, May 07, 2010 18:27I'm a professional photographer and this is the perfect vehicle for me. I can haul lots of stuff. Go through snow and bad roads and It's been very reliable. Of course, it's a Honda. I have owned nothing else since 1995 and don't plan on changing.
2004 Honda ElementEdward H Bernardin, Ogden, UT, July 06, 2009 21:32I bought this car used in 2009. It had less than 24,000. It's better than brand new. I'm trying to take really good care of it because I hope it outlasts me. I'm 70.Enthusiast
