I have driven the Echo for 22 months.
It is a great vehicle for local driving
& short trips. Local gas mileage, with
auto, is 30 MPG & on the road 40-42.
Great visability,head room, easy to
enter & exit, more height & room than
my Cherokee, a huge trunk, & a
surprising amount of storage space with
the rear seat pulled down. Acceleration
is barely adequate & cornering is poor,
also high winds demand slower speeds &
greater attention to the road. No
problems so far after 14,000 miles.
