Fun, but not what I expected of a Honda

2008 Honda Element LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

At 54, this was my very first new car...ever! Everyone said what great cars Hondas are, so I was excited to be buying one, and my beloved Element to boot. At 1000 miles it had been in the shop twice for fuel tank sensor issues. Now at just shy of a year and only 5700 miles I am truly disappointed. It IS fun to drive and I love its funny nerd cool look, but the quality really lacks....small irritations: defrosters are non- existent, radio speakers vibrated from the start, driver's side doors rattle. I'm a single old guy, so it's hardly been given rough treatment.

Favorite Features

Funky goofy look. All doors....suicide side doors and the back clamshell. Rubber floor, no mats! Also love how high I can make the driver's seat.

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, Interior is pretty sparse, MUCH better HVAC system and stereo system.
