Sometimes during finals week, I basically sleep in my car overnight at school since I commute.
The dealership just received a silver 5spd DX so I naturally took it for a test drive.
I'm impressed with the room. I'm 6'0 and my room mate is 6'5 and we both fit in the driver's seat.
Tons of rear seat room and heaps of headroom.
More surprising though...it's peppy!
With three people in the car the Element chirped the tires in second gear easily. Lots of low end torque.
Granted I was driving a 5spd DX, the lightest possible Element but my friend and I weigh 450lbs between us and the sales lady thrown in has to be almost 600lbs of payload and the E was pretty fast!
Since I did not take the Element on the freeway I am talking about low end power really....the first three gears. I am used to my 95 Infiniti Q45's 280 horses and I can tell you the Element is no slouch.
Handles well too, pretty neutral....even when I threw it into a few turns pretty aggressively it did not understeer and that's with the DX cheesy wheels and tires.
