2008 Honda Element Review

UNORTHIDOX! How about the 2008 Honda Element! Just one glance tells you the Element was built for those who live their own unique way. Some people have lots of places to go tons of things to do and loads of essentials to take along. The Element takes functionality to the extreme so you can do WHATEVER on your own terms. A deeper look reveals its tremendous utility. Wide-open cargo doors let you load up from either flank. Or you can use the clamshell tailgate. The Element is powered by Honda's i-VTEC 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Roll that with real time All Wheel Drive a mighty 27 miles per gallon and no tune ups for the 100 000 miles and you have worry free GO! A tall cargo hold and configure-it-64- ways seating gives you flexible freedom for almost anything you’re up to. So pack it up jump in and live beyond the ordinary.
