2006 Honda Element EX-P 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


This was our first Honda and our last. Day one the steering went we had to wait for a new rack-pinion to be installed. A steel rod came through the drivers seat, both front seats had to be recovered. Bad tires, gas mileage, tail gate hinges, visibility, if you park next to another car its real fun to get the rear passengers out. Suicide doors need to go, also need to make this a 5 passenger vehicle, as their is plenty of room.

Best Features

Easy to clean, nice stereo, paint and finish, motor, transmission, brakes, handling are all good. Ac works great.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage, 5 passenger, regular doors, better upholstery, tail gate needs better shocks to hold it up. Decent tires would help expect to buy new tires at 20k miles. Some body side molding would help as door panels crease and dent easily. Automatic lights needed. Don't expect more than 20 mpg.
