Hands down the best car I have ever driven

2006 Honda Element LX

This car is over 10 years old and is hands down the best vehicle I have ever owned. The car had 164k miles on it when I bought it and I have driven it for almost another 100k and have had zero issues. I use this car on a rural mail route and have driven it through thousands of miles of rough terrain and it has handled it all without complaining. The amount of space inside this vehicle is ridiculous. I am not a very tall person but I can almost stand up in the back. My only complaint is that I wish it had more cup holders and Bluetooth capability.

2006 Honda Element, Code p2646 is most likely electrical issue

2006 Honda Element LX

This vehicle has an electronic issue throws code p2646 saying it needs a new part when in reality the connection plug is corroded. It also has transmission issues. It gets me from point a to point b so I guess that's what's important. This vehicle has VTech parts so it's best to buy replacements directly from Honda dealership. It also has several recalls regarding the passenger side air bag. It can explode and throw shrapnel. If you consider purchasing please make sure this is fixed, dealership will do it for free.

Up the mountain with an element

2006 Honda Element LX

It's a great family daily driver. We camp and travel often. It's easy to clean. The all wheel drive makes it perfect for going up the mountain. My only complaint is the way the doors open. It's annoying but I've gotten used to it. I would recommend the element to anyone with an active outdoor lifestyle in need of a reliable fun vehicle.

The Elements large bumper has really come in handy.

2006 Honda Element LX

My Honda Element is very reliable, it is has plenty of room inside and the back seats fold over to add more space for storage. This really comes in handy on my yard sale expeditions! I bought used and it hasn't given me any problems yet. Honda's are known for lasting a long time. It has been a great vehicle for me and my family.

Efficient and reliable Honda Element

2006 Honda Element LX

The car is really reliable and I have taken it back and forth between states for a couple of months and have not had much problems with it. The fuel economy could be better but other than that it is very spacious and has been efficient. The removable seats have been very convenient with me traveling with my military career.

Spacious enough for cargo.

2006 Honda Element LX

I think the car is a bit ugly. I particularly do not like the fact my car is orange. I do like the space it provides. It is a very spacious car. However, it only seats four people. It is a good car if you like camping and need to carry equipment around. However, it is not the most comfortable or elegant car.

this is a nice little car

2006 Honda Element LX

The visibility of this care is really great. You don't feel like you are driving a box. My one qualm is that the gas pedal is hard to feel with your foot. And since it is an older car it is starting to have some issues. Though it is still new enough to be able to be repaired. It is a nice little car.
