I Love My Honda Element

MJ5L1932I love my Honda Element, so much so that I’m on my second one. I previously had a 2006 4WD and sold it to buy another car but less than a year later, I knew I needed another one. Why? Versatility!

I love that I can set up a comfortable sleeping quarter and or transport and store bicycles inside. Bike locks are great, storing a bicycle inside of a car is better in my opinion. You can fold the rear seats into the sides of the vehicle and have something close to a box van, and if that’s not enough, you can remove the rear seats all together with a push of a button.
MJ5L1979The rear of Elements can function like other vehicles. Dad Mode.
MJ5L1953I can fold one seat up into the side and put a bike inside (with the front wheel on) for transport or storage.
MJ5L1975I have camped in my Element more than a few times and really enjoy it! With a good air mattress it’s often better than most other temporary sleeping arrangements. The floor of Elements are completely flat which makes things much easier and more comfortable. I used to put an air mattress directly on the floor with a sleeping bag like this.
MJ5L1961I have recently started placing my air mattress on top of the folded down front and rear seat. This is more comfortable and provides more storage under the folded down seats.
MJ5L1965 MJ5L1963Here you can see how there are no B pillars in Elements making accessing anything easy.
MJ5L1974To gain even more space while sleeping I often lock my bike on the hitch rack.
MJ5L1940I love that my Element automatically switches to all wheel drive when the front wheels lose traction! It’s proven more capable than I’ve thought in past situations. This thing gets me to the snow ride when it counts!
MJ5L1983 I love my Element! I love my Honda!

  2. Have you tried to fit a hardtail mtb in there? How many miles do you have on it? I am thinking about getting a 2007 ex awd with 157k.

    • I’ve wheeled many hardtails and full suspension mountain bikes in there without problem. Mileage varies over time. I’ve had three Elements over the years.
