Echo 4 door 5 speed

2005 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased this car for its gas mileage only. I thought it was funny looking but it would serve my needs. Then I drove it. What a blast. It shifts well, handles well (in spite of other reviews that said it had severe body roll), the room is amazing for such a small car. I'm, 6'1" with a long torso and I have head room to spare. The seats could use some leg and back bolstering though. Now, I've come to appreciate how it looks, especially as it sits in a gas station.
Build quality, smooth shifting, gas mileage, interior room, ease of access, 4 doors, large trunk.
Could use more engine noise isolation, seats could be more firm with more legand back bolstering. A hatchback wouldbe better.
