Pros: "design suited me for sitting in driver's seat, air"

Cons: "bumpy ride"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I loved this car from the beginning because suited my long legs and shorter torso as well as the fresh air flow system -- and kept it forever because it is reliable, good on gas milage, and easy to drive. With regular oil changes, it didn't need much work for almost 200, 000 miles. Now it has emissions problems, and I guess I better let it go. I wish they were still making them-- I would buy another one with updated safety features."

"Great car - best I've owned (including past Corolla and Civic). Bought mine refurbished in '05 with only 4700 miles. Reliable, good in winter with chunky tires. Ran like clockwork. Got 40 MPG and I drive hard and fast. Never had a Tercel, but I don't think Toyota would sell many hybrids given the fuel economy of these older, value models. Doesn't handle as well as a Civic, but I'd buy a new one if they still made them."

Pros: "Great Price - fun to drive - great on gas."

Cons: "SUV drivers are jealous."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"My Toyota Echo has been amazing in so many ways. It looks brand new, is great on gas & is so maneuverable. I can fit into the tiniest parking spaces & city driving is kind of a lark with this size vehicle. Very gratefully, I must say it is amazing in snow - must be the front wheel drive. I have about 150000 miles on it, but feel, with regular maintenance, we're good to go for a few more years. I was sorry when they stopped making them, as several of my friends also wanted to purchase one."

"I bought this used from a dealer and had a sunroof installed. We added a bike rack to the trunk. It is the go-to car for most of our driving around town. Easy to get into and out of, good in snow, convenient size with room for luggage and skis. Small enough to fit into the garage with room to spare. Most of all, very reliable. A wonderful car that my whole family likes to drive."
