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

Review

This is my last Honda!!! For the last 25 years I have bought them all (Toyota, Nissan, Ford, Subaru, Caddy...etc) but never witnessed a vehicle in this size to only tow 600 pounds? This means weak Transmission and lack of suspension support. They sure made it big enough to stuff whole garage full of stuff. Plus the sheet sounds like it was make of coke cans. The car is noisy and can't decide to stay in 4th or 5th gear. From what I know, all Hondas have this problem. WEAK and noisy. AWD system does not do so well compared to my Suby. The front wheel always slips during rain or snow and engages the rear tad late...what's the point. Prone to roll over. Complete design flaw

Favorite Features

Radio and rubber floors.

Suggested Improvements

Stop making this junk...the vehicle needs substance. Improve the electronics and safety feature.
