Echo Hatchback Rs 2005 — I own an Echo Hatchback RS 2005. It's got good handling, but lacks acceleration. It's an automatic transmission. The standard transmission is much better for this car's performance. The interior is great in the RS, except that there are lots of vibrations from everything that is made with plastic. It's very economic when you look at gas mileage and repairs. My automatic transmission is pretty boring to drive. But I heard that the standard is fun and nervous.

Reliable Toyota - Perfect First Car. — Appearance: Friendly looking car. Comfort level up there, for what you would expect from this price class. Build quality: Very easy to drive with perfect visibility. Never in the shop for anything. Really good on gas and basically maintenance free. Performance: Sufficient acceleration to pass people, easy to go with the flow. Braking weak, but predictable. Handling sufficient for everyday driving. Felt safe and in control driving it. The car is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Great Little Car And Makes The Wife Happy Happy Wife Happy Life Lol — Great commuter car for the wife cheap on gas. Looks sporty and she loves it. A little short on the leg room for me but I don't drive it much but sure great for getting a parking sport for busy events and such....

Small, Cute, Echo-nomic...., — Great car, amazing fuel economy, and I have enough power vs my own weight that I can surprise pretty much any car on a acceleration (like a red light I usually block all the idiots that whant to pass me on my right, including a RX-8)
