Oldie, but a goodie, hoping for an echo comeback!

My car doesn't have auto locks or windows. Since it's a little older echo, it has an issue with the exhaust pipe rattling when I am sitting at a light. The seats are comfortable, but the belt slot on the drivers side bumps into by hip a little bit. Otherwise, echo has quite a bit of speed when gas is pressed. Excels really quickly. As long as all liquids are regularly checked, its perfect.

Love the bug look, without the small size! The collegiate crawler car.

Runs great, have lived through a lot and has not failed me yet. Decent mpg, and relatively low-cost to fix. A lot of manual features, but high-tech enough to enjoy the ride. Personally love the safety features and size- it is roomy and has a lot of trunk space, making it perfect for road trips with close friends. Does not hold a lot of gas, only 9 gallons, so refills are pretty frequent.

Not a family car or for large people. The gas is great. It is a reliable car the front seats are comfortable and I like where the speedometer is. My trunk button is lock so I have to use the key. It still has a cassette player no CD player. It is not easy because it is a two seater to get in the back.

Safety Recalls (1)

chevronDown icon
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V256
Summary:
On certain passenger vehicles registered in the states of Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, condensed moisture from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) port could seep toward the brake vacuum port inside the intake manifold at freezing ambient temperatures and start to freeze. Vacuum assist to the brakes would decrease and increased pedal pressure would be required, increasing the vehicle stopping distance.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will repair the vacuum port. Also, owners of the subject vehicles in states other than the recall states will be notified of the recall. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
