A very good car. It's little weak engine
accelerates it just fine, thanks to the light
weight of the car and decent aerodynamics.
The car rides smoothly and quietly. In fast
turns you do feel some body roll. The center-
mounter instrument cluster is a great feature,
it makes driving easier when a cop is behind
you. Switching your eyes from the speedo,
to the cop in the rearview, then to the road
has never been easier. Also has an
excellent stereo. And I've never seen so
much storage in a vehicle! It has Toyota
reliability, but the interior quality could have
35-40 miles per gallon with real world
performance!! A car this fuel efficient usually
isn't much fun on the highway, but the Echo
holds it's own out there!
A higher quality interior and less flimsy door
handles would make for a nicer feeling car.
