    Test drove an 06 Element EX-P AWD with 120k yesterday, it is in good condition overall but the only other V4 I've driven is a 94 Nissan Sentra which feels quick for its size because it's smaller and I imagine lighter. However, the Element's acceleration felt like it was holding back, like it...
