I would upgrade unless you want to risk dealing with car problems long distance.

Determine if the has had the usual upkeep stuff done like struts. You could easily put another 100k on it. Even if you kill the motor that's replaceable. The Element has a loyal following and as long as it's not rusted out underneath someone will buy it.
