Only two days with this car and already loving it! The CRV's were out of my price range, and it seems people are overlooking this gem of a car. The same 2.4 liter engine we've come to rely on with the Accord, and CRV. Often coined the Toaster, or Bread Truck, all I have to say is YES to carbs! I'm moving into this from a V6 2 door Acura CL passenger car, so it's an adjustment in not only the horsepower, but also the size. I'm still trying to figure out how long and wide I am, but I suppose that will come in time. Just ran the CA smog emissions test, and they said it scored super low, which is awesome. The previous original owner took super good care of it, and I had it checked out by my Honda mechanics who gave me a thumbs up! It needs some cooling system work, but they said it is a 95% awesome car. They did the full pre-inspection test on it. A have a few dings and a few interior flaws, but it is a used car. I believe more people should consider the Element over the CRV if you need to watch your budget. If Honda brings it back, I hope they make the back door openable with the front doors shut. Also, a sunroof over the drivers area in addition to the rear seat to carry three people. Side note: my mechanics said super reliable model. Secondly, I got 217,000 out of my Acura, so I'm a loyal Honda customer forever.
