2000 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car in October 1999 and it is still running well. Besides regular maintenance, battery, and tires there were 2 sensors that went bad but other than those minor things it has been perfect. The gas mileage is close to that of the top hybrids.


Best Features

Gas mileage close to that of the top hybrids. Storage pockets and roomy trunk are a plus. You don't sink down in the seat - you are sitting up higher than you would expect.


Worst Features

No complaints - just wish the driver's side had more leg room. That is my fault for being tall. Outstanding job Toyota!

2000 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 2000 green 4 door Echo with only 15 miles on it. The car is simple, economical, and extremely reliable. Of all the car that I have owned, the Toyota ECHO is my favorite car.


Best Features

I really like the simple design of the car. I like the hand crank windows. I like manual door locks. I love the location of the dash board and controls. Simple means less things to go wrong. The ECHO is great at the gas pump.

2000 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe


Review

The design of this car is nothing short of sheer comedy. Powertrain: excellent: peppy, great mileage, idles smoother than my Mercedes. I literally get over 35 mpg with combination driving 40 mpg highway. Great car, especially for someone in the used car market who seeks reliable economy. As long as they are able to overlook quirky styling, they are set for miles reliable driving. Car also has a timing chain instead of a timing belt which is great for overall maintenance, or lack of.


Best Features

The cold light indicator. Center mounted instrument cluster. High seat height.


Worst Features

They have accomplished it with the Yaris.

Review

I've had no problems with this car at all. I replaced two sensors over 101,100 miles other than that the car is nearly flawless, comfortable even for tall people like myself. The dash board design is simple and easy to view. The stereo system is outstanding with six speakers. The gas mileage is phenomenal. I've owned many cars and this is by far one of the cheapest, fun to drive, and above all else reliable. Low maintenance costs. I can't say enough about this car except that I'd buy another one if they still made them.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the surprising head and leg room as well as the stereo system. It also has surprising acceleration.


Worst Features

It could be quieter. You can definitely hear the road and wind.

Review

My little red Echo spoils me - incredible fuel economy, roomy interior, peppy attitude, and very durable (mine has been rebuilt twice from two accidents - I just didn't want to get rid of it). I've used mine for zipping around town and cross-country trips (over 2,000 miles at a time), and hauling my junk to and from colleges for years. My friends (and some mechanics) think I'm nuts when I say I plan to run this car into the ground before I buy another one. As long as you keep up with the regular maintenance, nothing short of a collision with a semi will destroy it.


Best Features

Fuel economy (still averages 40mpg after six years); small size but roomy; big trunk; durability.


Worst Features

Standard anti-lock brakes (I put a cinderblock in my trunk in winter to help keep traction on the ice); right-side arm rest for driver.
