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

Review

Bought it for work use. Love the rubber interior features and space. Unfortunately was delivered with defective right rear hub, but was replaced quickly. More horsepower needed. Extremely disappointed with shift points of auto trans.. Can't seem to get 4th and 5th gear to shift in order to lower RPMs and maybe improve mediocre gas mileage - currently have 5300 miles on it and can't get better than 20 highway. Windshield size and angle makes it very difficult to see traffic lights. If I had realized transmission problem I might have considered the manual trans.

Favorite Features

Interior room and finish materials. Comfortable seats. Rear tailgate. Suicide side doors allow wide open pass through.

Suggested Improvements

Recalibration of transmission or use of paddle shifters to allow gear selection. More horsepower. Gas mileage. Windshield rethinking.
