2004 Honda Element EX AWD 4dr SUV w/Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Wrote Honda that backseats do not lock, will not take child car seats, very dangerous, was like this when we bought it but did not know as we did not use the back seats until our granddaughter was born 2rs ago when we tried to install her car seat, discovered locks do not lock, never did since purchase. Local dealer said cost would be over $700. Wrote national Honda. Got uncaring follow-up phone call, they hung up when I explained this was NOT about a part under warranty needing repair, but a life threatening problem existing since purchase. We cannot take passengers/children in backseats ever--a huge flaw. But worse was lack of concern by Honda. Probably my last Honda. Safety matters most.
Favorite Features
Hauling Bernese Mountain Dogs, plants and paintings. Easy cleaning of interior. Wide front window.
Suggested Improvements
Terrible Honda customer service. Backseats do not lock--extremely serious safety hazard. Useless compartments across dashboard front--won't even hold a wallet. Blind side. No place for a bag or purse in front--should be between seats. Cup holders useless where they are. Need wider open back windows.
