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?
