I have owned my Echo for 7 yrs and it is the best car I have owned. I have had this car where trucks have been stuck and it still keeps going in the snow. Seven years and 195000 kms later with proper maintenance all I have had to do is doughnut gasket struts and brakes once.
Long lasting and fun to drive.
No more 13 inch tires, they are harder and harder to find, as well it is not the best car in high winds.
