Love love love this car!!
There are a couple things that need to be fixed.
The locks are a bit tedious, but nothing that is vital. Sometimes its hard to get the key to turn on the driver's side lock.
The seal for the windshield came out on the driver's side and so I have to get that fixed as well.
And lastly, there's a funny noise when beginning acceleration from a stop.
With that said however, this is a great car! I'm REALLY pleased with the look of it, the spacious inside and trunk, the way it drives.
Not much acceleration, but of course you know that when you buy it. You don't buy an ECHO to race, you buy one to last you for ten to fifteen years.
This is actually my wife's car, I drive a '93 Toyota Paseo, and that thing has 177K miles on it, and it's still going strong with minimal repair costs.
Buy Toyota! They are amazing!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
