We upgraded our Honda Element to a six seater a couple of years back, out of necessity (before we purchased an eight seater Suburban for our second vehicle), and absolutely love it! Check her out:
Excellent point. safety first.My father was just rear-ended in the Pilot last week and now I'm staring at how you put human lives right in the Element's crumple zone. Even a moderate tap would smash your passenger's heads against the rear window. I'm DEFINITELY not liking this at all.
They wouldn't have to be crushed. Any decent bump from behind would have their heads hitting the rear glass and I'm not sure what's worse, really - getting killed or living on with a severe brain injury... Nope. The worst would be watching my kids live on with a severe brain injury.Yeah, I wouldn't put my dog in the Dog Friendly kennel setup for just that reason. I definitely wouldn't let anyone ride back there. But, hey, people get crushed in the passenger compartment, too, I guess.
back when that whole drinking and driving thing was a good idea?how I long for the days when we used to ride in the back of the pick up truck, sitting on the wheel wells, the entire little league team sitting on the rails.... Everyone is so uptight anymore, sheesh.
he posted a link. someone had one of these installed a few years ago, first time i've seen 2Do you have any info on where the seats came from?
Any pictures of how the seats are mounted?
I agree on the concerns of the crumple zone, but applaud you on the mod.
