After having SUVs, my concern was being
able to haul stuff around. With the
folding rear seats, I'm still able to
haul 2X4's and other home improvement
items. Great gas mileage (remember the
SUVs). It feels much larger on the
inside that what you would think. My
husband is 6'4" and has plenty of
head/leg room. We also have had 4 plus
size people inside and still lots of
room. I've found I can fit more into
the trunk than I could in the "trunk"
of my Jeep Liberty.
I would recommend this car to anyone.
It is a great value.
Center dashboard, all the storage areas
and the roomy trunk
great gas mileage
Overall the whole car is a favorite
I wish dealers would keep more on the
lot, thus ended up getting very basic
More comfort items.
We have over 100,000 miles on our Echo
and still have the same spark plugs,
coolant, battery, clutch...everything
except 2 sets of tires and 1 set of
brakes. Never had a minutes trouble out
of this car, it still drives as well as
the day we boughht it new and the fuel
economy is awesome. We will definitely
by another Echo in 2 years. YOU CANNOT
GO WRONG WITH THIS CAR!
Distinctive dashboard, reliability and
More comfortable seats and an available
sportier version with sunroof and allow
wheels would be a plus.
I wanted a reliable car. Toyota has
the "bullet proof" rep for quality -
and Consumer Reports gave the Echo the
highest quality rating of the low-end
compact sedans. I am very pleased with
the gas mileage - better than Kia,
Hyundai, or Chevy Aveo - and I've
really appreciated that with gas prices
being so high this summer. I really
don't car about styling, acceleration,
handling - it's a good little car to
get me to work. I don't want to spend
time haggling with auto mechanics
trying to rip me off and I think the
Echo has the built-in quality to stay
out of the shop.
Great Gas mileage
I wouldn't try to improve it. It's a
commuter car - why try to turn it into
something it's not?
