"Bought with 78K miles and drove another 202K (mostly highway). Got 35-40mpg. New A/C unit when I bought it. Changed oil, filters, tires (twice), plugs (twice), battery, rear shocks, and that's it. Never touched exhaust or brakes."

2001 Toyota Echo

"Super comfortable seating, love the slide out tray under the pass seat, and the driver and passenger pocket storage area. The car has a roomy overhead interior, adequate radio/stereo, heats up fast in winter and cools wonderful in summer. Simple engine makes for easy maintenance. Good sized trunk. Overall this is a very good little car, drives like a big car with a zippy easy to handle feel"

"I bought this car in 2000 and unfortunately today ordered a new car. My Echo still runs great but it doesn't look so great from the outside and I use my car for work so it was time to make a change. It will be hard to let go of it cause it's been so good to me. Huge gas savings, did minor repairs on it in 14 years, perfect for parking in the city, very spacious, totally adorable, had couple of accidents, but it always kept me safe. If they were still making them, it would be the only car I would ever look at. I will miss it for sure."

"I have loved this car since I bought it new in Dec 1999. I still love it. It has always gotten 35 to 39 mpg , & 40-43 highway. It's rated 34/41, & I think KBB had it wrong when I looked it up. It is easy & fun to drive. Comfortable seats. Plenty of head room, leg room front & back, trunk space. 60/40 fold-down back seat. No power lock or windows--very basic. Two cup holders. There is no new car to compare it to in cost of operation. I have had to do minimal repairs in 14 2/3 years."
