I've been browsing this forum while getting ready to pick up my first Element in a day or 2 and I saw some pics of $5000 deer damage on an element. It got me wondering how they hold up to deer since I live in NE Pa and they are everywhere. I have always been a loyal diehard Nissan fan and it took a kiwi E to convert me. I hit a deer with my Altima and my insurance company could not believe how well it took on the deer. I hit it hard too causing it to roll up on my front window and got thrown several feet away. All my Altima suffered was a small dent the size of a baseball. After seeing somebody's Element with $5000 damage I'm concerned. Does the element usually lose battles with the deer? What am I in for? Thanks!
