Good Car, Not quite as advertised....

Vehicle2007 Honda Element EX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI had this car for three years and about 32,000 miles, drove it across the country and in Montana for a year. The drive is good, not remarkable. The gearbox is solid and smooth. The turning radius is very good!
The build quality was great, and I had no problems with the engine just regular maintenance. My only problems were with the "realtime" all wheel drive and the cargo capacity. This car is marketed as a young adventure vehicle. Well with a gross payload of 600ish lbs.....4 people generally hits the limit so no gear, as long as you keep it light your ok. The AWD was slow to react to slipping wheels so you start sliding on spinning wheels too often. what is the point of the tilt sunroof?
Best Featuresclamshell doors, maneuverability, wipeable floors.
Worst FeaturesDriver switchable AWD, alert driver when the AWD is on. power sunroof? Honda: get some better OEM tires, the factory tires were awful!
