Reviewed: 2011 Honda Element

4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4 5-speed automatic FWD

Why the 2011 Honda Element?

Cargo capacity

Darned near perfect vehicle for one or two people with bicycles and dogs.

Exterior styling

Funky... definitely funky. In 20 years, this will be what hipsters drive to Burning Man after all the VW Vanagons rot away.

Handling

You can make a U-turn in a two-lane road: try *that* with a PT Cruiser!

Why Not the 2011 Honda Element?

Fuel economy

Sure wish I could get 30 MPG in this thing instead of 20 (though I have gotten 26 on long trips as long as I don't let my wife drive)

Powertrain performance

Not available with manual tranny; automatic tends to hunt in stop-n-go traffic
