Having owned an Element, I agree with you.
The Element was obviously hastily engineered. The suspension had a "defect" in that over certain road irregularities the vehicle would rock front to back and side to side simultaneously. It was a very odd sensation. Although I liked the Element I owned, it too easily telegraphed just how cheap its construction was. It also had some issues with component durability that no car should have for the mileage driven much less a Honda.
I think the real boat Honda missed was not turning the Element into a pickup.
