2004 Toyota Echo

Commuter car
When my husband got a job in downtown vancouver, we needed to find a car that was reliable and good on gas. He drove 240 km per day for 3 years. 3 years later and after putting over 200,000 K on the car, it owed us nothing and we have passed in on to our niece. It is a little noisy but I would say as a commuter car it delivers.

2002 Toyota Echo

It'll get you there, eventually!
Great on gas, good for city driving. Not recommended for long drives.
Extremely frustrating when trucks are passing me because I can’t accelerate, with 4 people in the car!!
Was ready to sell the car by the time I got to New York.
Gets stuck in the snow every winter, but 5 football players can lift the car up so easy to get out of the snow.
It’s the family golf cart with doors :)

2000 Toyota Echo

A real workhorse.
We bought our 2000 Toyota Echo used in 2007, and we've pretty much driven it into the ground. In grand total I've probably spent about $500 to $600 and 3 visits to the mechanic over the past 5 years, so I have to admit, it's been a real workhorse.

The performance is surprisingly good in the low end, and it's very quick from 0-70, but after that it's a slow but steady ride up to 100km/h and beyond.

The biggest drawback for this car is the speedometer and gauges which are in the centre of the console, not behind the steering wheel where they are supposed to be, it gets a little annoying driving in the city with this car because you have to keep taking your eyes off the road to check your speed.

So my overall impression... absolutely amazing reliability, fun to drive, but the gauges in the centre really detract from the experience. So if you want just want a car to get you from point A to point B and back, this is the one for you.
