2006 Honda Element EX-P 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I really loved my 2006 Element until gas prices started to go up and the 2007 models came out with the seat belt attached to the seat instead of the back door. How ever I love the honeycomb grill on mine compared to the newer models and the ease of cleaning the interior.
The interior space, no carpet, real time 4wd, stereo w/sub woofer, no pin striping, powerful AC, lots of head room, honeycomb grill and the factory wheels
Honda really needs to redesign the transmission to make the Elements 6 speeds because they are geared way too low which adds to its undesirable fuel efficiency. In 5th gear on the interstate going 70 mph the engine is at 3 1/2 so I have estimated only getting 18 to 20 mpg.
