2003 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
Best little economy car on Earth ! She's 7 years old now, and not a single problem or repair, with the exception of the "rusty floorboard recall" of several years ago. Just routine maintenance. You could drive this car into a volcano, and it would still run. Fairly comfortable to drive on long trips. The interior has held up well - - - - the seats still look like new! And I actually like the center-mounted gauges; steering wheel and hands don't obstruct their viewing. Not affected by the recent Toyota recalls. The only thing that I can complain about is that I wish she had a little more power.
Gas mileage, quirky looks, fits in the garage with room to spare, unbelievably reliable. And has better headroom than its Yaris replacement.
