It takes $22 to fill up my gas tank and I get very good mileage.

I currently own a 2003 Toyota ECHO. I recently wrecked my previous car, so I bought my ECHO used for about $1,500. It is in decent running condition. However, the brakes recently started acting up. When I press too hard on them, they squeak. Also, when I leave my foot on the brake, there is a slight grinding sound. My air conditioner is also currently not working. The outside of the car is in okay condition. There is a small dent on the left side of the windshield. There are a few scratches on the outside and a few rust stains. The inside is in okay condition as well. There are stains on the majority of my seats, so I have seat covers. The felt that covers the top of the car is still intact and is not hanging down. There a few scratches on the inside on the doors. I do not have an AUX cord but I use a FM transmitter to connect the Bluetooth in my phone to my radio. Overall, it is a very good car for only $1,500.

Great car that I have nicknamed 'my zippy car'.

This car is great for doing errands. It is so easy to drive and to park. It is great on gas mileage. The visibility is wonderful. It is a little difficult getting in the back seat but once you are there, it is comfortable for 2 people. The trunk is fairly roomy and I am able to get everything I need in the trunk. The car is easy to drive in traffic and to make right turns on a red light. The trunk latch broke which has been very inconvenient. Also one of the hubcaps came off and dented, so now I must replace that.

The 2003, 2-door, automatic Toyota ECHO

I love my 2003 Toyota ECHO. Although the car is 16 years old, I have never had any kind of mechanical problem with it. The only expenses I have had are for a set of new tires after about 5 years from purchase and a new battery after 15 years of usage. I do not have a lot of miles on the car because I do not have to drive much now that I'm retired. Nevertheless, it is very economical to drive, giving me at least 30 miles to a gallon of gas. Unfortunately, Toyota has discontinued this model and replaced it with the Years.
