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

Review

I bought this vehicle after owning a Nissan Pickup for 6 years. I bought it to be able to haul my bikes inside instead of outside in the bed of the pickup. The interior is functional, perfect for my needs. The performance is terrible, bad hesitation upon acceleration. If you need to accelerate RIGHT now, forget it. The tires squeal on almost any sharp corner, in rain it feels unsteady, like it could hydroplane at any second. Terrible mileage (21 MPH for a 4 cylinder). I honestly think rollover is a problem or will be soon. The sunroof is unusable in that it is in the back and cannot be opened remotely.

Favorite Features

rubber floor and stain resistant seat. Very versatile interior features.

Suggested Improvements

better handling, better mileage, smoother engine, quieter.
