2000 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan


Review

I've had no problems with this car at all. I replaced two sensors over 101,100 miles other than that the car is nearly flawless, comfortable even for tall people like myself. The dash board design is simple and easy to view. The stereo system is outstanding with six speakers. The gas mileage is phenomenal. I've owned many cars and this is by far one of the cheapest, fun to drive, and above all else reliable. Low maintenance costs. I can't say enough about this car except that I'd buy another one if they still made them.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the surprising head and leg room as well as the stereo system. It also has surprising acceleration.


Worst Features

It could be quieter. You can definitely hear the road and wind.

2000 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe


Review

My little red Echo spoils me - incredible fuel economy, roomy interior, peppy attitude, and very durable (mine has been rebuilt twice from two accidents - I just didn't want to get rid of it). I've used mine for zipping around town and cross-country trips (over 2,000 miles at a time), and hauling my junk to and from colleges for years. My friends (and some mechanics) think I'm nuts when I say I plan to run this car into the ground before I buy another one. As long as you keep up with the regular maintenance, nothing short of a collision with a semi will destroy it.


Best Features

Fuel economy (still averages 40mpg after six years); small size but roomy; big trunk; durability.


Worst Features

Standard anti-lock brakes (I put a cinderblock in my trunk in winter to help keep traction on the ice); right-side arm rest for driver.

Review

I have owned my Echo for 7 yrs and it is the best car I have owned. I have had this car where trucks have been stuck and it still keeps going in the snow. Seven years and 195000 kms later with proper maintenance all I have had to do is doughnut gasket struts and brakes once.


Best Features

Long lasting and fun to drive.


Worst Features

No more 13 inch tires, they are harder and harder to find, as well it is not the best car in high winds.

Review

I bought my car new in 2000 and have been very happy with it ever since. Have had oil and fluids changed regularly. Had timing belt and tires replaced. Otherwise, no problems. Always starts right up.


Best Features

I can haul a lot in this car. I regularly bring my 2 dogs along; sometimes my husband comes with me and I stow his wheelchair in the back.


Worst Features

I like it the way it is. Wish they were still making them.
