Love the Echo
By CAT on


2001 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Bought my 5 speed stick shift, Indigo Ink Blue Echo, new. New it got 45 mpg/highway -- down to about 39 mpg/highway with 165,000 on it. The first tires lasted 65,000 miles. The battery lasted 7 years. Did the first tune-up at 145,000 miles just because it had never had one, NOT because it was running badly. Faithfully change the full synthetic oil & filter every 3000 miles, other filters as recommended. Loved this one so much, now own two (bought a 2005 Echo to replace a 1995 mini van).

Best Features

Have always loved the roominess of the interior. Have split back seats so can load lots of stuff into it when I need to do so and it will hold more than some vans.

Worst Features

Cruise control -- which I had put on after market. Would love to be able to buy a 2010 Echo, but they stopped making them in 2005.
