I think it's cute and for the price, it is very reliable and economical. If you're looking for a good, sound economical small car, I think the Echo is a good choice. The trunk is suprisingly roomy and the seating is tall and very adequate.The down side is it's a bit noisy when driving on a highway. I wish it was better insulated from road noises. And it does sway when passing a semi. Otherwise, I like my Echo just fine.

Better insulation from road noise. More stability when passing larger vehicles.
