2006 Honda Element LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


There's not a better value on the market folks. My 6-3 teenage son fits comfortably in the back seat and there's lots of room for his euphonium on the storage area. For the same money we considered a Pontiac Vibe which is a good car but claustrophobic when compared to an Element. I'm 6-0 and the seating position for me is ideal, I could drive it ALL day. Oil change is a snap(I change my own) with no need for a jack. With the black panels it really stands out from the crowd after I wash is and treat them with Armor All. Something I've noticed, you never see an Element on a used car lot.

Best Features

Fold up rear seats. They park along the sides upright and you can put large items as if it were a small pickup. I love the roominess for four passengers. I got a five speed manual and the stick shift configuration is very clever and visitors always notice it and comment.

Worst Features

Wouldn't a diesel engine be a good idea? A raised center console would be great.
