2002 Toyota ECHO 1.5 Liter VVT-I from North America
A truly wonderful car!
Rear barring and axle assembly replaced under warranty.
I would recommend this wonderful car to anybody seeking a fuel efficient reliable car. There is no comparison to the Echo... I test drove many other cars and wanted a boring Civic until I came upon this.
I didn't buy it new, it was fresh off of lease and was basically in new shape. From what I understand mine is rare because it has all the options like power windows/locks/alarm/premium sound, which really make it a nice car, but if it didn't have those I would still love it.
Toyota really makes a good car. My last Toyota had 284k miles and still running when I bought this one. These cars aren't fast, but mine usually gets 40+ mpg. I get a lot of oohs and ahhs when friends ask about the gas mileage. I actually bought mine because my friend has one also and is very satisfied.
I plan to drive this car a few more years and buy a brand new truck, but still keep this to save gas! This car has never cost me more than $50 to fill up, even with the worst of gas prices!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
