2005 Honda Element LX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Not your average SUV. The Element is EXACTLY what a SUV should be .... versital, functional, and of course fun to drive. What more could one ask ?? And of course it is a HONDA !! Seeing that my first Honda, a 1990 CRX is still on the road that is saying quite a bit.

Best Features

The layout of the instrument panel and the Gear Shift are Excellent. Took a little getting used to with the 5 speed trans.

Worst Features

The transmission is geared a bit too low, you can be in 3rd gear before clearing an intersection. This of course would benifit an off road vehicle. But with a relatively low ground clearance, I suspect very few Elements find themselves knee deep in mud.
