"Very gas efficient and reliable, I always get significantly more MPG than they claim: 35-40 in city always. Mine is a manual. The steering is hard ie doesn't feel like power steering but that is my only complaint and it is minor. Have never had any mechanical problems with any of the Echoes that I have had. Last one had over 130,000 miles on it before I sold it to a neighbor, it now has just under 200,000 and is still going!"

"I bought my 2000 Toyota Echo with 6,600 miles on it. I have always used Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil and now that it has over 220K I now started using the Mobil 1 High Mileage Fully Synthetic. Not sure if it would have mattered. My car is more sporty than most with american racing rims which allow fatter tires and dark window tinting on black paint it looks pretty good. Mine is an automatic and gets 40mpg never had to do anything but change oil. Spark plugs should be replaced at 100k s..Never needs distributor cap..never even had to flush radiator only add a little still looks new inside and out. Plan on keeping it until it is towed away! If you hang on to this car it will save you money and be the most dependable car you will ever own period!"

"I have owned my Echo for 9 years. Only 1 significant repair due to normal wear and tear, transmission-related. The gas mileage (especially when new) was fantastic - 36 miles to the gallon on the highway! The interior design is a bit different but great one you're used to it. Good trunk space for such a small car. My model does not have any amenities, like power locks, etc. Having the fold-down seat would be helpful though. Leg room in the back seat is good. After some years and a back injury the driver's seat isn't as comfortable as it once was, but over all I highly recommend this car. They run forever and if you take care of it you will get much more than your money's worth."
