For a teenager that does lots of driving for parttime job and to school, needed a vehicel that was large enough to be safe in traffic, yet give good gas mileage. see full Honda Element review
2006 Honda Element Real Gas Mileage: Cons

5-speed manual AWD
This is my only major gripe with the vehicle... I seem to get a consistent 22mpg, whether it is city driving, long flat highways, or mountains. If I go out of my way to drive conservatively, or use a medium-to-heavy foot with the aid conditioner, the difference is completely negligible... it's pretty much always 22mpg. see full Honda Element review
