low TCO / reliable transporter

Vehicle2004 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesGreat Gas mileage
Worst FeaturesI wouldn't try to improve it. It's a commuter car - why try to turn it into something it's not?
