Has anyone ever ridden in this car?


This is a new Honda Element. Bigger than the CR-V, roomier than the Honda Pilot. More sensible than the Mini-Cooper (except for parallel parking). Boxier than every other car on the market (I don’t count Hummers —I think they should be banned from the city limits).

I’m very intrigued by it and wanted to ask the readership of if anyone has any opinions. I’m into cars in general, but especially if they are highly-functional by design (and by that I mean functional for sports equipment/bikes, etc.) You can say it’s ugly, but I like the looks of the Element better than the Nissan XTerra

    That’s not a car. That’s a crossbreeding accident between right angles.

    Also, the painting robots on the assembly line were in rebellion that day.

    But your mileage may vary. Um, so to speak.

    I don’t like the back seat windows, they pop out rather than the sensible up/down scenario.
    It looks like a breadbox on wheels. Not the toughest looking vehicle on the road, kind of like Playschools’ “My first SUV.”

    You know, they are rather plastic-toy looking. Like I just want to pull it back on its wheels and let it zoom around on my floor. The perfect *real* sports sports car has not yet been designed, nor has the perfect backpack.

    This is quite possibly the ugliest car on the market. I thought it was a joke when I saw it. Of course I am not surprised that there are square SUV’s to meance the road now.

    I own a delivery company and buy about 3 cars a year for the last 8 years. I bought an Element as a personal rig, and my wife and I both love it. It is with out a doubt the most useful vehilce ever made. It can fit all kinds of things, we even transfered two 25′ trees in it. It cleans up easily and drives great. When we go to the lake all the windows can be easily covered and use it as a changing room, complete with plastic floor.
