From the first day I got this car, I am satisfied. It is a perfect car for students because it is excellent on gas and very reliable. Though I do recommend the automatic for first time drivers. Throughly, it's a car you get addicted to.
I love the space the car has to offer, it's a very spacious car for the rear passengers and the front.Head room is complete but when tall people sit in front, the people in the rear get little space.The Echo has many compartments on the front dash that are very useful.The trunk is also large.
The seats aren't the most comfortable and it would be nice if it would be a little longer for knee support when driving for a long period of time. It would also be more reliable if the front wheel bearings would be tougher. Sometimes you have to play with the shifter to put it in reverse.
