This is my third Toyota. which I purchased as a Certified vehicle. It's quirky looks and smallish exterior are more than made up by the excellent interior room and outstanding fuel economy. My Echo is pretty basic, manual everything except transmission. To date, I've been very please with the quality and economy. I'd recommend the Echo to anyone looking for a fun, reliable commuter car.
Impressive interior room and storage areas. The performance from the 1.5 liter engine is robust.
With the small size, I'd suggest daytime running lights as a standard feature.
