Honda Element

I see that earlier Elements are ok for 4 down. I don`t see in forums anyone has towed one. Wonder if there were problems. They seem to be popular vehicles other wise.

We tow an 2005 Element. Its a 5 speed standard, 4wd assist we've had no tow issues but do wish we had an automatic. Others we know are towing autos with no problem. Just check the model year for when autos became untowablke

We like the looks of the cargo area and would like something to haul bikes around. Glad to know you all are happy campers with the Element.

We tow an '05 Odyssey and know of others that tow 2010's with no trouble. Lots of room but a little larger and heavier.
