The Toyota echo; a very comfortable and small car.

My vehicle is very old therefore it has the normal problems that come with old cars. Unfortunately, this specific car also has problems with the plastic underneath and the alignment. While driving on the highway, this car seems very unreliable because the steering wheel will jerk you from left to right. One time I was jerked so bad that I had to pull over. This was when we found out that the plastic underneath had been dragging and had caught the wheel. By getting caught on the wheel, the wheel burnt a hole through the plastic and it is been very hard to fix ever since. Although this car has problems, I love the fact that it is a stick shift car. The seats are comfy and overall it is a great starting out car. I wouldn't recommend this to someone with a family because it seats five, but the inside is very small. No 6 foot person would want to ride shotgun in this car.

Old and keeps forming new problems.

It is old so there's a new problem every month. First the oil change light was defective so I was driving on fumes. Then the tail pipe rusted out and was dragging on the street. Sometimes the locks on the doors get stuck and will not unlock. My gas tank is also defective making the gas pump think it is full and click off while I am fueling. The check engine light will not turn off. The cheap, plastic detail on the sides are falling off. Sometimes the needle on the speedometer gets stuck and I do not know how fast I am going.

Compact car, great gas mileage!

I love my Toyota echo, its a compact car. My 6'4 brother can sit in there good!! Great on gas and excellent on gas for freeway driving. I've had my car since 2001, and it has 190k miles all by me. I've driven to new Mexico, Oregon from California with no problems. The only thing I have a problem with is the clear coat on the car has come off and it looks terrible, but I am sure that is my fault for not getting it waxed. But for a old car it runs great with regular maintenance.
