Worst car I have ever owned

Vehicle
2005 Honda Element LX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Review
If you are expecting perceived Honda quality, you will be very disappointed in the Element. It will start at about 3000 miles when your rear brakes will start grinding, Then at about 20,000 they will literally explode. Make sure you are always near a repair shop. At 45,000 miles you will need a new manual transmission because yours will pop out of gear at low speeds and require two hands to shift it into 1st or 2nd gear. Have no idea what to expect at 50K because I'm dumping it at 48K. Goodbye to the worst built car I have ever owned. (I have owned more than 30 cars BTW)
Favorite Features
Holds a bike standing up.
Suggested Improvements
Fix your defective rear brake design! Fix your fragile transmission and add a 6th gear!.
