2005 Honda ElementVisitor, Saint Paul, MN, August 02, 2011 17:14I HAVE OWNED NEW FORDS, CHEVYS, GMC'S. AND THEN A 2005 HONDA ELEMENT EX [51,000] AND 2008 CRV [17,000] BOTH ALL WHEEL DRIVE. BOTH ARE THE BEST UNITS I HAVE EVER OWNED. ONE THING, FOUR BANGERS SHOULD GET A LITTLE BETTER MILEAGE. BUT, ALL-WHEEL DRIVE THEY ARE HARD TO BEAT.
2005 Honda ElementVisitor, Franklin, NC, September 09, 2010 16:43I bought this right off the delivery truck during October, 2005. We love it. I only have 48k on it so far. Highway mileage 26, in town 21. We are in our late sixties and are getting tired of folding up to get in our Impala and bumping heads, so we take the Honda. I like the tie downs, convenience and room. I did have the differential changed and transmission fluid at 35,000 miles. I change engine oil between 4 and 6k miles. The book says you can go 10k. Out on the highway it buzzes right along and you sit high. We both like 270w radio with XM.
2005 Honda Elementminpinmom, Fairbanks, AK, November 09, 2009 04:08I bought this vehicle used with 48,000 miles. I show dogs and was able to carry 2 intermediate and 10 small kennels, plus 4 exercise pens, and other gear along with my suits and personal bag. I love the visibility and got 26 mpg on that trip. I also slept in it on a twin size air mattress. My model is an AWD and I get 22 mpg. in the city. My sister has a 2004 that she bought new and told me this would be the last car I love the best. So far, it is.Rookie
2005 Honda Elementriverbird, Seattle, WA, December 11, 2008 22:07This is the perfect car for me and my dogs. I take them to all the parks around town and they love it too! We have had to replace the alternator and the radiator, but otherwise it's great!Enthusiast
2005 Honda Elementwoodstock, Walnut Creek, CA, November 24, 2008 23:44I love this car, especially the interior room and design. The rear seats can fold up or come out giving you lots of carry space. The legroom in the back is outstanding but the back seats are up a little high. It's also hard to see out the side windows (for lane changes) when the back seats are "folded up". The gas mileage is disappointing. I have the 2wd auto and get 20mph combined city and freeway.Enthusiast
