Great First Car — Lovely little car, great gas mileage, perfect first car! Handles really well, and great in the snow. I rarely get stuck. High enough off the ground so you don't bottom out often. Seating is comfortable. One dislike is that there is no RPM meter so you have to base shifting on how the engine sounds. Easy to drive.

Betty — It only has 2 doors, and it looks like an egg on wheels. The gas is great! and its got a lot of room! Its fun to drive, because its like a go cart. It doesn't cost much to keep it running, as long as you put gas in it and change the oil!

Pros

Excellent fuel economy and reliability, not to mention, incredibly spacious.

Cons

Doesn't handle like a BMW, or provide the comfort of a Lexus, for that matter.

Economic, Reliable Gas Saver — This tiny little Toyota has quite a bit of pep, for its tiny 1.5 liter four cylinder engine. It's incredibly reliable, makes for a very convenient city vehicle, and has a surprisingly compliant ride. Best of all, it averages 32MPG in the City, and over 42MPG on the highway, depending on how you drive, of course. It's a definite winner, especially in times of $4 gas.

I Wish Toyota Will Make This Model Again. — I co-owned this car back around 2005-2006. It has gas mileage of 40 to 42, the most fuel-efficient ever existed. Too bad it didn't sell well that Toyota decided to cease production. It was easy to maneuver and it is small, perfect for city streets. Good performance as it almost never needed any repairs during my co-ownership. However, its outside appearance did not seem to attract a lot of people; but I only cared about its fuel economy and functionality.

Great gas mileage. Very comfortable and you sit high where most smaller cars you sit low.  Vey roomy for a small car. Repair costs no more than any other car I have owned. Large trunk.

Cons

No power windows .

Good For A Student Who's Parents Give Away Money. — You get what you pay for. Although at 8,000 USD for a used one is asking a bit much. Proper used price should be 5,000 for the 2002 model with 50,000 miles. Most of these models also have an electrical issue that causes the battery to drain when the car is not running.

The Toyota Echo Is Good Car — It was the best inversion ever!!! The quality of the ECHO is awesome. The performance is incredible, the only thing that I spend money on it is on gas, tires and regular mantainance. It's really a fun car to drive. If you are looking for a non-expensive carwith good rendiment, this is the car for you!!!
