MPG 41-47 (5 tests)

2002 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


My manual 2002 4dr Echo has 175K now. I did 5 tests on mpg w/different routes and cargo load (from just one driver to 1 driver + 8 scuba tanks and a scooter). The roads are country, FL. Burned some 3/4 of a tank, read receipts for exact difference and read the odometer. None of the tests indicated lower than 40 mpg and the highest I've ever recorded was 47. For 175K replaced parts were: burned cabin fan resistor, 3 sets of tires (worn), cracked windshield (gravel), dozen w-shield wipes, oil change. Best of all - I paid it off 2 yrs ago. None of the new cars come close to the performance and "True Cost 2 Own", not even Yaris nor Honda Fit.

Best Features

manual gear, enormous trunk space, split bench, simple controls, instrument panel, visibility, accessibility and ergonomics

Worst Features

I miss auxiliary big locomotive horn. Why in the world did Toyota US stop selling Echo?
