With its cheap interior and wobbly handling, the Echo doesn't seem like much of a bargain, especially when you consider the more capable, better-packaged offerings from Hyundai and Toyota's own Scion division.

I made 103K KM since I bought it new for C$13000. I had no trouble with it at all. It is the best bang for the buck. Drives and handles very well. It is not very comfortable for long distance travel but you can drive it very comfortably for 100 mile with no hassle. Excellent leg room in the back seat for 6'4" tall person.

My parents (i'm a high school student)
were happy to get this car: cheap,
slow acceleration, small, fuel-
efficient. I like this car b/c I can
easily pass someone, it's weird-
lookin. Ppl can always tell where I
am, b/c not too many ppl drive this
car. The only prob: It's missing all
the "basics". you're going to end up
puttin a buttload of options in the car.
