2006 Honda Element EX-P 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Great versatile vehicle. Amazingly useful and fun too. The SUV has loads of features and is easy to convert from passengers to cargo use. Gas mileage is pretty steady around 23 MPG overall, but doesn't vary much from city to highway use. Actually has a reasonable amount of pep. Could use a five speed transmission, which I guess is standard for 2007. Fit and finish is Honda all the way, which is to say fantastic. Forward and upward vision is somewhat restricted due to extended roof line for taller people, but there is a tremendous amount of headroom, both front and rear. Could use a little more legroom for front seats in fully extended position. Maintenance is thrifty.

Favorite Features

Versatility of vehicle. This is what an SUV was meant to be. Probably not going to blaze a new path of Pike's Peak, but extremely useful for everyday use. Plus you can always pick your vehicle out in a crowd, because nothing else looks like it.

Suggested Improvements

Extend front windshield upwards and backwards to increase forward vision, which is somewhat restricted for taller drivers. Extend legroom for front seats, as the maximum position is still somewhat limiting for taller drivers. Offer a multi-disc in dash CD player as standard equipment.
