Drove the car from N.C. to N.Y. 16 hours and over 900 miles. Had no problem keeping up with the traffic, plus going up and down the hills with no problem. Gas mileage average 28mpg. Traded my 2007 V-6 Nissan Murano for the Element. It does not have all the bells and whistles as my Murano but the price is right. Love the gas mileage, fun car to drive. Love how you can change the seats around. Very dog friendly. So much room, it has more cargo space then the murano. Also loved listening to the XM radio. Handles well and like how the doors open up for easy access.
Love the color and changeable seats and the gas mileage. Like the floors easy to keep clean, no carpet. Seats very easy to clean. Lots of windows no problem of seeing. Like the 2.4 engine very powerful. Love how the back seats recline.
Could use nicer arm rest, telescoping steering, and power driver seat, and power windows for the back seat.
