My Echo is a great little car, which I
paid $11,000 for one year ago. So far,
after driving over 80,000 miles, there
has been no unusual maintenance needed.
The only things I have done is to
replace the front tires and a pair of
new windshield wipers, plus change the
oil and filter a few times. My gas
mileage started out just under 50 mpg
and is now around 45 mpg (I need a tune
up). My Echo is a 2-door, 5-speed with
no frills. If you are looking for a low
cost simple car that gets great gas
mileage then the Echo should head you
