2006 Honda Element EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Although this cars handles very well in winter weather, the brake pads, rotors, and calipers don't hold up. Do not buy this car if you live in the northern US or Canada. All components of the brakes have rusted out, warped, seized, within 32k. That's not Honda quality. In addition, the dealership labels all of these design flaws as 'normal.' If you have the extra money, but a Toyota. If you don't, buy something else.

Favorite Features

This car is deceptively spacious. It can move anything. Too bad it sounds like a rusted out derailed locomotive at 20 mph.

Suggested Improvements

Don't install subpar stock brake pads, rotors, and calipers. Or don't sell the car anywhere it snows.
