Love this SC

2008 Honda Element SC 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Review
I have driven this car from Chicago to NY to North Carolina and just love it. It really is a good city car. I am 240 lbs and this is the most roomy little car on the market. The SC doesn't have as much road noise because it's carpeted rather than the rubber flooring. Mileage after 12000 miles is consistently between 18.5 and 19 city (under 7k miles15-16) always mid 20s on the road. The engine could be a little bigger - it runs at higher RPMs. The 4cyl is torquey and there is always power. Gets pushed about a little in high winds but nothing serious. Could till be a bit quieter inside. I am about to trade in a 2005 f-250 for another one - we will have a fleet i guess. Drive safe!
Favorite Features
Roomy, mileage, versatile, resale, reliability, radio 270 watt does well. Took the rear seats out right after we got it home and the extra room is just wonderful.
Suggested Improvements
Quieter cabin, leather (in the SC) AWD, remote oil filter, v-6 or raise to 225 hp and more torque to increase trailer tow capacity, door lock control on passenger side.
