Default What is the maximum weight a 2006 Honda Element LX can carry?

According to the owners manual, the vehicle can only carry a total of 635 lbs. including passengers. This seems like a low-ball figure considering it is a compact cross-over SUV that is optimized to carry large loads, and the chassis features reinforced joints, strengthened lower side sills, larger cross members, enlarged rocker panels, and five bulkheads per side. We want to take a cross-country trip with maybe two hundred extra pounds over the stated limit. Would we be safe with that much weight in this vehicle?

look at it this way, if honda dont make trucks that can hold much weight, i dnt think one of their suv can either. i wouldnt go over 100 lbs over wat the manual go's by. alot of things could go wrong carring to much weight.

Shouldn't be a problem in spite of the specs in the owner's manual. This topic has been widely discussed on the Element Owners Club forum... Do a search and you should find the information you need. This is a very active and informative site.

Update: Here's a search result. It takes a couple of seconds to load.
