I bought the ECHO new for my wife to
drive because Toyota has been known to
make cars with very few problems and we
didn't have the extra money to buy a
larger car. This car has been great. We
get 40 mpg on the highway, plus some
diving in town. The most mileage that
we have gotten is 43 mpg. I had one
size wider tires put on the car to help
with car waving as big trucks would
pass. Also I have been using Mobil 1
oil. I would recommend this car for
someone that has a lot of driving to do
and needs a car they can depend on.
Gas mileage, no problems, and the car
is able to hold highway speeds without
a lot of loss of power.
Better padded seats. Because I drive a
lot, my legs start hurting after awhile
on the road. Widen the car some would
help with waving problem when big
trucks pass or with strong wind gusts.
