It looks like it would be a good place for my dogs to sleep in at night.

It's not really important enough to give it any thought. But this is.

Q: Did you hear about the Polish weightlifter who won an Olympic gold medal in the clean-and-jerk competition?
A: As soon as he gets home, he's going to have his medal bronzed!

Oh man, is there some kind of competition between car manufactures to see who can make the ugliest car? They just get worse and worse.

I Dunno Guys, I've

leased tons of them since they came out.
They haven't discontinued the Echo.
The 5-door hatch is just Toyota Canada's half-assed answer to the much cooler US-only Toyota Scion series. AAARRRGGHH!
When it comes to my clients, I look at it from a practical view -
they're easy to recommend to someone who wants something cheap but with a good equipment level - like someone would get for his kid (& cheaper than my "gold-standard" which is ANY Civic)
- they make great delivery cars for my fleet customers
I mean, how ya gonna go wrong? You get Toyota economy, reliability and resale.
I know I'm stepping out on a limb here, but I think it's cute in a cuddly sort of way, whereas the Echo was and is, horrifically uuuugglyyy.
Also, I personally LIKE small, nimble cars that are easy to park - my personal car is a Protege5.

i like ure personal car Howard

but i still disagree with you about liking the Echo. of course, this is all opinion, but i like small, nimble and fast cars, a la Dodge Neon, Mazdaspeed Protege, Miata, etc. The Echo is in no way fast unless you put a crap load of ricing crap on it, and that just kills the car. and its still ugly. :P but hey, youre entitled to your opinion.
