Pros: Center console
Cons: Small wheel size
Advice: Buy one--the great mileage alone is worth it.My 2001 Echo was recently smashed--front and back--by MUCH larger vehicles in a freeway collision. I walked away unscathed. I loved this car, my friends loved this car...I'm definitely buying another new Echo (as soon as I get the insurance check).

Advice: Buy the Absolutely red color its hot with spoiler and gold pkg.THis car handles great on the road this 4 cyl. has great pep and pickup. The Bridgestone Potenza tires really hug the road. The high roof makes it feel like your driving a bigger car there is no cramped feeling. The absolut REd color is hot with the spoiler and changed the wheel covers to chrome mag wheels car looks hot with the dark gray lowered trim. Get the light burlwood dash kit changes whole look of dash. Gold PKG. looks good too.
