Happily driving the wheels off. Very
reliable. Pros are the interior room
(I'm 6'2") which is the best in a high
fuel economy car I've ever known,
excellent manueverablity and parking.
An excellent city car. Cons are
crosswind sensitivity (you MUST stay
focused on the road on a windy day)
and the stunning lack of Toyota
aftermarket parts and repair manuals.
Much of the car is engineered to make
you bring it back to the dealer. I
paid $42 for a fuel filter that was
mounted in the fuel tank under the
rear seat. Tercel (ECHO is a very
upgraded Tercel) had a $5 fuel filter
under the hood on a fender. OTOH it
simply doesn't give any trouble.

Crosswind sensitivity needs work,
without comprimising the high roof
line. More A/C for the really hot
days (110F+). Variable lumbar support
for the front seats, and a center arm
