Great Ski Car
By Runmaster on
2006 Honda Element EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I purchased an '06 knowing that changes were going to made in the '07. I did not care for the new belt system and the front grill. Also, this was the 1st generation Element and I believe that all the issues are worked out with the last year of a generation change. (Front windshield, A/C, AWD, etc.) I have been correct. This car (SUV) is rock solid.
I ski patrol and this is a pretty good AWD. You do need the correct tires. It is outstanding for hauling gear. No big thing when snow gets inside. No cloth or fabric that can get water damage.
An indication that the AWD is kicking in. This car with a diesel engine would be outstanding. Also, it could be an inch more ground clearance.
