A Smart car makes sense if you live in a city, are commuting/driving within the city, and never exceed 30 mph. (Everyone in that context should probably own or share one.)

I would never regularly drive something like that on freeways. And I used to own motorcycles.

I would add more legroom for the driver, reposition the driver's side window so you could comfortably rest your arm on the open window, add a button in the rear to open the rear hatch hatch, make the skylight universal (or an easy option on all models), make the front passenger seat easier to remove, provide a custom bed option for the interior when the rear seats are out, provide a better tent option, provide an awning option for when the suicide doors are open, provide an auxiliary battery option for powering camping appliances and electric blankets, better fridge option, overdrive on all transmissions, make the skylight retractable, provide a mosquito net option for the skylight.

2019 Element the return of this little beauty

Is this true?

Is Honda going to reintroduce the Element?

I was on the internet and for some reason this seemingly real information popped up.

I followed the trail but couldn't get a clear answer as to will it won't it

Since this is THE PALCE to get the real story I've come here to ask.

Is Honda Going To Reintroduce The Element?

Let me know?

Thanks!

Gary

Two words.

No.

The Element is dead.

All the sites reporting it coming back are just click bait.

Everytime I receive an Email from my Honda Dealer, or correspondence via USPS asking to buy our Elements. ( Almost every month ) I respond by stating: Appreciate the offer as we have two Elements and love them both. Until such time Honda decides to go back and manufacture the Element, we will not be trading.

I recently had the transmission in my 03 rebuilt. AAMCO did the work because my dealer quoted me a cost of $5K to do it. I think they are crooks, but that's another story.

Not long after I got that quote, they contacted me asking if I'd like to trade it in.

So my guess is they are using every tactic in the book to try and grab E's for resale.

ya, it stinks that there aren't many true sport UTILITY vehicles being offered out there...at a reasonable price as well. No companies are willing to go out on a limb and create something different. Seems like all mid-sized "SUV"s are just full of electronic gismos, TV screens, automatic everything, cramped interiors with the same seat/doors movements and sleek styling that makes them look like a taller car or a shorter mini-van No suicide doors, tailgates to sit on, open and roomy/tall interior, flat floors, etc...SIGH... Just adding my 2 cents to the wishful thinking that the Element (or something similar) would return!

Hmm, if you could design/build your own car or have one in production that was perfect for you, what would it be like?? Mine would be an element body that was a little bit bigger overall(just to fit plywood and stuff in a little easier), a better 4 wheel drive system(maybe like a subaru drivetrain) and standard transmission...all for less than $20K Did i miss anything?

Now there's an idea, stretch and widen the Element body and drop it on a full frame 4x4. I was looking at the FJ Cruisers then they discontinued them. Now I'm waiting to see what the new Broncos are going to look like.

I was curious about the FJ Cruiser as well when it first came out, but after i got a chance to look inside and sit in it...no way! way to small and cramped on the inside. :/ Yes, it will be interesting to see the new Bronco...not holding my breath though....

AND a lock/unlock button on the passenger side door!
