I bought my 2000 Echo because I
commute almost 90 miles a day
round trip and needed something
that gets good mileage. Overall, an
excellent choice due to the
ergonomic and comfortable seats,
controls, and design which enables
shorter drivers to actually see the
road. It's cheaper to buy than a
Corolla and in many ways just as
good or better.
Comfortable interior, smooth ride
considering its size, simple and easy
to operate instrument control panel,
good 4-speaker stereo system
I cannot see the front or rear bumper
which makes it hard to judge
distances when parallel parking.
Also, it's very light so when there's
any kind of wind, you are really blown
around. Needs a heavier base.
