Element SC - Too many problems
By iPhoneholio on


2007 Honda Element SC 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Cons: The Element is my first Honda and probably the last. Reliability and build quality was surprisingly poor with subpar components. Tires wore out at 24,000 miles, all new brakes (rotors & pads) at 30,000, speedometer broke at 5,000 miles, windshield replaced twice with mystery cracking, drivers seat cushioning compressed and wrinkled, and scheduled services are over priced. The ride of the SC model is very harsh if the road is less than perfect - I had to stop drinking coffee in the car due to it too easily splashing. Brakes are noisy even shortly after replacement. Very uncomfortable for long drives due to no "dead pedal".

Best Features

The look is cool and the space in the rear is great. Love the ability to easily move the seats around without removing them.

Worst Features

Build quality and ride are poor for a Honda. Too many unexpected expenses in the first 30,000 miles!
