N and I shipped the little Echo over here as our only car, and I had cause to truly appreciate it recently.
1) With gas now at $2.45 a gallon here, I am very pleased to be driving a car that gets one of the highest MPG ratings out there - of cars that are pure gas cars.
2) It is nice being small. Many parking lots here are tiny. I was recently in the garage at Ward Centres watching this car go back and forth trying to get in to a spot. They finally gave up and moved on. I turned into the spot in one move and went shopping.
On the downside, I recently could not get this chest from a garage sale in it. Oh well.
