Excellent for two
By gafulham on
2008 Honda Element EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
We bought our Element used with 24k on it. Overall we are quite happy -- only real drawbacks are as follows:
1. Rear access is a total pain in the a@#! We probably drive 80% of the time with the rear seats stowed -- this would not be a great family car (our kids are grown and gone)
2. Interesting lack of amenities on a top line model - ie., no auto unlock button on passenger door, no outside temp meter, intermittent wipers have only one speed.
3. Towing capacity rating is a joke -- is Honda serious about this or are they being hyper cautious?
4. Mileage is only so-so
Still, it is like a storage pod on wheels and it is fun to drive. Also great with dogs (we have 2).
A good buy overall for us.
