2003 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


Purchased this silver 2003 auto coupe and knew immediately it was a great choice. Quick, comfortable, fun to drive and excellent mileage--even for an automatic. First mileage check netted 280 miles for 8.5 gallons, netting a very respectable 33 mpg city/highway. Believe it will get 38 hwy easily. Killer sound system, lot of room, huge trunk space for a "small" car. Surprising quiet at freeway speeds. Toyota may have made some mistakes marketing this car, but not in building it. The Yaris sedan is similar but getting one of these at a fraction of the cost and you have a great quality car.

Best Features

Quickness, mileage, roominess, all the little storage nooks and crannies.

Worst Features

Don't make them anymore but could use an armrest, cruise control.

Great little car that could. Go it in 2007 with only 24k miles 20-30 miles per gallon. It now has 50,600 miles and I have only changed oil every 5 k miles, Rear breaks and tires, were replaced. Other than that, it takes me places no problemo. Great little car.
