Flawed but fun
Starting in 2005, the driver's side lock began malfunctioning, it was fixed and then it broke again the following year. Now once again it is in the shop for a lock that doesn't work!
I am pleased with the Element, but feel that faulty design of the driver's side door lock should be addressed by Honda. I had a Honda Accord station wagon for 10 years prior to the Element, and never had a problem with the door locks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
