Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Honda Element Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 062009

Element EX AWD 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,000 miles


This has been a great little SUV/crossover and has rock-solid reliability. The only issue I have come across so far has been the light on the temperature dial (climate control) has burned out. I bought the car second hand, so I am not sure when this happened. I plan on taking it to Honda to get an estimate on the repair cost. If it isn't too expensive, I will get it fixed, otherwise, I have learned to do without. This is my second Honda (my first was a Civic) and both have been wonderful. Thus far, this has been my only issue with both Hondas that I have owned.
