Long Term Economy

Vehicle2004 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewOne of the most desirable features I have found with the Echo is the motor and drivetrain. It has excellent performance for a 1.5L motor - I assume this is due in part to the Variable Valve Timing. There is no timing belt that will need to be replaced in a few years, it uses a timing chain. There are no spark plug wires that need to be replaced either. I agree with the Edmunds review that the styling is not as desireable as the Scions which use the same drivetrain.
Best FeaturesMotor / Drivetrain. Low maintenance. Economy and performance for an economy car.
