Had a Toyota echo. Put over 200k miles on it with only changing the brakes and exhaust manifold gasket. Wanted a newer car. The xa has the same power train as the echo. So bought it.$11.9k . Same as the echo. Great mileage (I drive 90% highway. At least 38+mpg). I've loaded it up with lumber (strapped qty 16 16' 1x8's on the roof), cement, you name it, I've loaded it. No probs. I consider ti a throw way car so I'm not concerned about the roof or scratching it. That's why I load it to the max when I do my home depot runs. Cant beat it. The only thing I've done on it is new brakes/rotors in the front and exhaust gasket. (90k miles on it at that point)
