I bought mine with 50,000 miles on it and have since put on another 250,000 on it. I own a small alarm company and I bought this car to save gas on service calls. I drive about 200 miles a day and this car has never broken down and saved me thousands on gas. I have only had to replace the fuel pump once and the struts a few times as I carry a lot of weight in tools and ladders. This is the most reliable car I have ever seen. Toyota was crazy when they decided to stop making the ECHO.

These cars are the best designed "econo-boxes" of the past 15 years. Lots of interior storage, killer gas mileage, and great pick-up. No irritations or dissatisfaction for me. I would still have my 1st one if not for a sleepy trucker.

After getting past its Small size. It's really to me a nice car. I happened to purchase one almost " Fully loaded" So alot of Features. Alot of Storage for the size. Dual Glove boxes, Center cubby holes and trays under the front seats. at 159,000K the car still runs fine. 92 octane @100% pure gasoline sees me 43-44mpg on average. 87 octane 10% ethanol sees me 37-40mpg on average. Has a handy overdrive switch on the gear selector. Helps alot with Highway on-ramps or fighting other toy yodas. Has a ridiculous Turning Radius. the manual says 26 feet. I think it's less. It's a Stiff chassis and responds quickly to input. It performs well under stress with a good set of tires. Braking Distance 65mph - 0mph is something you should witness. If I had to complain I'd say Steering becomes Feathery at high speeds and understeer can be quite severe depending on your speed. But It's not a Sports car. and it does Extremely well at everyday Driving. With a good driver the car will surely bail you out of tight spots and dangerous situations on the highway or street with it great Handling characteristics. There are "kits" to convert these cars into Hybrids. They

Best investment ever

by from Central Florida on April 21, 2009

I bought this car used in 2005 with 115,000 miles on it. Since then I've put on another 120,000 of my own delivering Pizzas. ONLY repairs have been clutch at 210,000 miles and the fan for the A/C has died, probably my fault for not knowing the filter for the cabin was behind the glove box and not changing it till it was completely decayed. I get 34-40 MPG depending on running the A/C, which still works, just no fan, and the outside temp, cold is better. Huge trunk suprises everyone that sees it. Has been a life saver in my buisness with the high fuel prices. Best part is I could actually sell it for a profit because of the great deal I got on it. But I just don't want to be without it.

Dependability and Economy!

by from LA, CA on March 16, 2009

We bought our 2000 Toyota ECHO as a pre-owned vehicle (with under 100 miles) in 2002 for $12,000 out-the-door. It now (2009) has almost 160,000 miles, and we have had virtually no problems. It's a man...
We bought our 2000 Toyota ECHO as a pre-owned vehicle (with under 100 miles) in 2002 for $12,000 out-the-door. It now (2009) has almost 160,000 miles, and we have had virtually no problems. It's a manual transmission and gets nearly 37-40mpg (even around town and with A/C running)! We have traveled all over the western U.S., even with a family of four and all our luggage. (We're a close family!) We just bought an 07 Yaris, hoping that it will follow in the ECHO's tiny carbon footsteps!

My Echo, Gordon, is the most amazing car I have ever owned. Everyone should own one!!! I get awesome gas mileage. I only spent 16 dollars on gas this past March.

This is a very dry and barebone car. It comes with very little, even lacking a clock. Due to its small size, it handles great and on the manuel version it can actually burn rubber. With its total size and engine size, it feels like driving a go-kart. But it is very efficient and in the 8 years of owning it, it has only needed the AC to be recharged and a new battery. So if you want a cheap car for 'point a to point b', then I'd recommend this car.

Great Transportation

I now have 147,000 miles on my Toyota Echo. Other than brakes and oil changes, the only "repair" I've had is the replacement of the front wheel bearings at about 100,000 miles. I'm still getting right around 40 on the highway and the low 30's in town. A set of Blizzaks makes the Echo a fairly decent winter car (I live in Michigan's U.P.). The car is definitely low in the feature department but given that it's the most reliable and efficient automobile I've ever owned, I'm willing to overlook that.
