2007 Honda Element LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought a 4WD LX model a little over a year ago. This is my fourth Honda and it is a disappointment compared to my previous Accords. I cannot see the tach or speedometer in bright sunlight even with the instrument lights on. This is just bad design. The driver's seat has a wear hole in it after 15K miles. The interior plastic is cheap and scratches easily. This is a vehicle built to a low price and it shows.
Seats are very comfortable for my 6'4" 230 lbs. Ride and handling are good although with typical Honda road noise.
Redesign the instrument pods. Use better materials.
