This Car Is A Great Econobox, Cheap And Reliable. That Is Why The Car Was Built. — Got the car from a family member, a 5 speed and 1.5L engine don't exactly thrill me, but the gas mileage cant be beat by most modern cars. When I drive conservatively I can get over 40mpg (I keep track by miles traveled). The worst I have recorded was during a week it snowed very heavily, I was stuck a lot and spent a lot of time idling - 31mpg average. The car doesn't handle well, but it is small and nimble which is great for parking lots. The suspension is very soft which lends into the poor handling it features. Now when i say poor handling, this is compared to enthusiastic driving, not regular chugging along. For that, it does just fine and you won't ever feel like you're about to fly off the road. The highway is great for mileage, but watch those bigger trucks and wind. Anyone who has ever driven a small eco-box will already know what to expect here. Drive smart and keep it under 80mph! There is even less power the faster you go and the lil engine starts to get loud.

My Echo — Fuel economy is a real bonus and the Echo is a true petrol-miser. Sweet engines match up well with manual gearbox. Tall body makes for great interior space.Reliability is streets ahead of much of the light-car class. In that regard, it's a Toyota through and through.Funky interior will put a few off, but most like its alternative layout. Fuel economy is a real i love it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A Good Car. Only Drive It When Me And My Girlfriend Cant Take My Car. — My Girlfriend's Toyota Echo Review. Performance: Good gas milage, poor transmission, acceleration not too good, strong brakes, handling is pretty good. Build Quality: Decently Solid. Road Noice is a little loud. Appearance: Looks small but is very spacious. Car is more for women my opinion. Cost of Ownership: Good gas mileage as mentioned above and hasnt had any major problems I know of. Fun Factor: Not too much fun to drive. Not a performance car. Fuel efficent, drives good, spacious for a small looking car

Good For Commuting — Small, Compact, Slow to accelerate. 5 Speed is even funner to drive. Easy handling, can fit into very very tight spaces too. Almost no repairs, 41 MPG, really fun to drive. Car is really fun to drive, little maintenance too.

Good Cheap Family Car — This Toyota is a compact car in size but spacious inside. The engine is a 1.5 L in-line4 cylinder! i has not torque at all but its a good reliable car! we have had ours since 2000 and we only had to put 2000$ of repairs excluding fender benders. a 2005 toyota echo can be bought as cheap as 5000$

Echo Stats — Performance is alright for a small car, the bulid of it is pretty cool with soo many little pockets. my model looks awesome with the little body kit and mag wheels. cost of ownership is not too much different insurance wise to the patrol but the fuel is almost twice the km that the patrol for half as much $. Car is fun to drive it fits in any space.

Echo Love — accelerated well before rollover,though can still handle city traffic. brakes awesome. handles just about everything you can throw at it. after 9 years, would still be in mint condition if i hadn't put it on its roof. needed new windshield, hood and o2 sensor. after 100,000 miles, needs timing done. spacious interior, ample headroom, plenty of room for 5, although long legged people get cramps during long trips. great gas mileage, 35 in town 40 on the hwy. is expensive to find/obtain replacement parts such as tail light covers. FUN to drive!

The Lil Car That Could — I love my lil car. It has enough room to fit 4 of my friends comfortably, gets great gas mileage and turns like non other. I feel so spoiled by it. Its so fun to drive! Its a total chick car tho, with tons of cubbies to hide stuff. It doesn't have a great amount of power but hence the great gas mileage. If you want a lil car that's great for level or down hill trips or just your everyday life the Echo is your best bet. I was so sad when they stopped making them. Sure the new cars are cuter, but there's no head room! My friend who's 6'5" couldn't get over how much room he had in my car!

Echo — Let's face it; nobody ever bought an Echo for performance or class. It does what toyotas are all good at. Reliable workin horse. Aand if it does ever break down, it will be my fault, because I let it go far too long between services. All in al, a pretty good little car.

Toyota Echo The Best Besides The Hilux — you can buzz in to car parks that bigger cars cant fit and buzz right on out and great on fuel! although its a small car it is quiet spacey inside. its great to fold down the rear seats and chuck the dogs in the back. this is one of the best cars ive owned and it was free!!!(given to me as a gift)
