I find the car to be fun to drive, very efficient with the 34-38 mpg, and very economical, i got it for $8,200 from a dealership in excellent condition with 37k miles. I didn't like the steering at first but got used to it. I was surprised at the power it had for its size. I couldn't have gotten a civic for anywhere close to this purchase price and if you don't care about the look like a married man like me doesn't then it's great.
MILEAGE, COST, and the surprising driveability
I woulda liked the back seats to fold down. Other than that I am more than satisfied.
If you are a young person looking for
a cheap yet reliable car, the toyota
echo is perfect for you! it's great on
gas and very fun to drive. it's almost
like a toy. I love the placement of
the odometers and just the way it
looks all around. If you are looking
for a gas saver then this is
definently the car! Before this car,
I had a Honda Civic, which i wrecked
and i could have got another one but i
chose the echo instead because i have
heard so many good things about it. I
love my toyota echo!!!
The placement of the odometers, high
seats, amount of room inside, great
maybe power windows, and power
locks....a little too basic.
Great car, I have an automatic and
average 43 MPG on the HWY. I must say,
I'm pleasantly surprised by the power
of the 1.5 liter power plant. Wish I
had cruise control with all the driving
I do but I am not fatigued at all with
the 200 plus miles I drive daily. I
highly recommend this car for the daily
commuter. My other car is a Lexus
LS400. I know quality when I drive it.
center gauge cluster. Don't worry you
will get used to it quickly and it is
great at night
Cruise control should be standard along
with PDL and PW.
I got the two door echo. It's not too
small but I don't reccomend the two
door because it's a pain getting
everybody inside it. Echo holds up good
against high gas prices but doesn't
hold up on the highway as much. I do
alot of highway driving and when it's
really windy the Echo blows all over
the road. It's great for in town
driving though, you never have any wind
disturbances there. My car came with
very few options which was
dissapointing but I didn't want to pay
a bunch extra. I'd say if you had to
choose between the Echo or the Hybrid
Prius, to go ahead and pay a lil more
for the Prius. It's alot better on
It's not my 1968 Mustang.
Do something about the wind Toyota,
come on there are people out there who
do use the highways alot. Design it
more aero dynamic. Needs more features
with the same price tag.
