2009 Honda Element EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)

Review

Owned this car for a little over a year now and the experience has been a good one overall. It's fun to drive, It feels solidly built, and I've yet to have any mechanical problems with it. Is is fairly flexible, But don't expect to be moving any couches or other bulky items. It's deceptively short, and if you really wanna pack it, you've got to lose the rear seats all together, which thankfully is fairly easy. Yes they flip up, but they bulge a good bit which takes up space. Not to mention block all visibility out of the right / rear window (kind of an important one if you're a lane changer). My biggest problem though is that the paint is chipping/ spidering, and Honda will not help.

Favorite Features

reliable, feels good to drive, easy to clean interior, XM radio

Suggested Improvements

The radio is a far reach from the drivers seat, makes it really hard / uncomfortable to navigate through 150+ XM channels. And 10 presets are simply not enough. If the radio and the automatic shifter swapped places, It would be a lot easier to enjoy the benefits of XM. Paint chipping at 4 mos : (
