You know, I like it. Great gas milage, Cheap to fix and oil changes are a joke. Ya the car is ugly but drives really nice and has some great pep for a 4cyl NA 1.5 with a auto. And a kick ass radio. I know its still a little but my other car is a 03 EVO. I want a bumper sticker that on my Evo that says my other car is an Echo. Does anyone else have a Echo? I can't find any Echo message boards? (I wonder why . I want to do coilovers and bigger wheels. I would have gotten a stick but a commute to the NYC everyday and traffic sucks. Ya!
