This Is An Epic Little Car. — I love that it's a stick shift, it takes me everywhere I need to go. It's great for where I'm living, super reliable, fits into tight spaces. It's comfortable for fairly long drives. It does tend to get blown around though.

Pros: This car is amazing. The gas mileage is incredible! I can fill her up, road trip to the next town 100 miles away, drive around the town, come back and still have enough gas to go back and forth to work for 2-3 weeks. It runs very smoothly, starts up every time with no issue, and is great in winter even without 4WD.

Cons: There are only two cons, the passenger side door doesnt open from the inside, and the blower is always blowing at least a little. Neither are that big of deal. The wind here in Alaska tends to blow it around the road when driving.

Great Gas Mileage — great car but too small and not heavy enough for snowy weather. It also has a large amount of room for a small car. Big trunk and lots of space for three people comfortably. It is very fun to to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gas mileage

Cons: too small

Good Car To Have As A Dailly Driver. — For the size of engine it has good pick up and go as long as the only extra wieght is the driver. Has 0ver 110000 miles other than brake and fluid changes I had to have rear bearings replaced. It is not the prettiest car. men make fun of it and women think it is cute. It is a very nice color however. I get over 30 miles a gallon all the time and usually over 35. I enjoy it for what it is, saves me a lot of money at the pump

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good gas milage.

Cons: Can't haul a boat or trailler at least the manual says you should not. I have seen one with a hitch on it.

Solid — it is a great car around town. It is very reliable and has a lot more power than you would think. The fuel economy is unreal but at the same time it isn't that great for a long trip because it does not have cruise control.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy and manuverability

Cons: no cruise

Commuter — This car is great for getting me from A to B. The fuel tank is 35 litres and I get roughly 500km out of a tank, when I use it to commute to work. I enjoy driving it because it has a manual gearbox and is zippy in traffic

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fuel comsumption, easy to park, low maintenance

Cons: small and guttless

2003 Toyota Echo (s) One Gold, One White (jkramer328) — White 2Dr Echo are rare I found out. Loved it when I saw it 2bd day on lot on internet .immaculate inside. was fleet vehicle for 5 years, low mileage, 2nd owner changed radio to silver radio w/bright blue indicators (sound was terrible) replaced w/updated Toyota Radio/cd player, and upgradrd to Toyota manual remoye mirrors(larger and modern), OEM Fog/driving lights and remote starter/alarm systems on both vehicles, engine compartment on white echo looked like it came off showroom floor.45MPG highway/36 MPG City, Echo emblem on right side on white Echo & left side on gold Echo. added wooden oak dash trim. Made identical upgrades on both vehicles where needed. Total cost about $520.00 parts alone. Definitely reccommend this car to someone who want a gas saver, but definitely needs cruise control.

Pros: Getting average 45MPG Highway on one and 40 MPG on other Echo, solid doors(doesnt sound tinny when closing

Cons: Had aftermarket radio (non-Toyota) installed, upgraded to Toyota AM/FM/CD Radio which brought out the clarity and volumn the other radio had no chance to; also upgraded mirrors to manual remote mirrors.
