Here is a 2002 Green Toyota Echo Sedan for Sale. Automatic. CD/Cassette. It
89,000 Original Miles, but is driven daily so mileage is likely to change.
I just recently took it on a 300 Mile Trip. I
bought this car from an insurance company with front and rear damage. It will
has a KY rebuilt title that can be licensed in any state. If you are wanting superb gas mileage, this is the car
for you! 40 MPG and this one actually has power locks (Rare on an Echo!) with
Keyless entry AND remote start! $250 option! Perfect on cold winter
mornings when you don't want to go out and start your car. Not to mention
no one can steal it while it is running! I also added
Tinted Windows. Additional $185 - I have the receipt! (So no one has to see your driving an Echo!)
I also have an additional upgrade if the buyer is interested:
- A NEW factory OEM fit Toyota Yaris CD player with
MP3 and MWA file capability. I also have the AUX jack to hook up your IPOD.
Currently installed, but I plan on removing it and replacing it with the
original OEM CD/Cassette player.
Below are two pictures of the car the day I
bought it, so you can see the actual damage to the car. Hard to believe it
was "totaled" for this huh? Seriously, that was it! Aside
from the small crease in the Driver's fender shown in the above pictures.
No damage to suspension, frame, Core Support, Radiator, or condenser. Air bags
were NOT deployed!
I have owned MANY ECHO's and if you are looking for luxury, look somewhere else or buy a Lexus,
but if you want a solid dependable car with GREAT gas mileage, this is your car!
The Echo got the BEST gas mileage over any other gasoline car sold for many
years and was THE most fuel efficient GASOLINE car made! Only the Hybrids and
Turbo Diesels got better MPG. (The car has the extremely reliable and fuel
efficient VVTi 4 Cylinder engine.) Please email me with any questions!
I can sell or can keep it an continue to enjoy the gas mileage
It was hit very lightly in front (No Airbag
bumped in the rear. It has a dent in the back bumper, some scrapes on the front
bumper and a crease in the driver fender. I also just put new brakes on it
at 89,000 miles.
I am a huge Echo fan and have owned several and actually have 3 of them, I just
sold my 2000 model on Craig's list earlier in the year. They aren't much to look at and
certainly aren't luxurious, but they get you back and forth cheaper than almost
ANY gasoline car made. You could spend $25,000 on a Prius and get 45 MPG or
Spend $6000 on an Echo and up to 42 MPG (which I have gotten in my 2000) They really hold
their value around this price range, and typically sell for more than book. Just
check Autotrader! Cheap to insure, Easy to work on, not many power accessories
BTW - Did you know the Echo has the same engine as
the New Prius and Yaris? Only the Prius has the additional electric motor
to help offset your gasoline usage, but the Echo has more horsepower. Very
Peppy little car!
It's the same engine as the
Echo. The Echo weighs 987kg and the Prius weighs 1,300kg. The
Echo uses the Otto cycle instead of Atkinson cycle. HP and
torque ratings of the Echo motor and the Prius ICE motor:
Echo Sedan/Hatchback: 1.5 litre
1NZ-FE; 108 HP, 105 lb ft torque
Prius: 1.5 litre 1NZ-FXE; 76
HP, 82 lb ft of torque.
plus Electric motor --67 HP, 295lb-ft @ 0-1200rpm
You just can't beat the reliability and AWESOME gas mileage of these little
"green" cars..... The Echo was the MOST fuel efficient GASOLINE car made period.
Only the Hybrids and Volkswagen Turbo Diesels got better MPG for the years they
were made. I also have a 2007 Yaris now and it does not get near the 40+ MPG
that the ECHO got.
Here's a list of the MSN top 10 MOST fuel efficient
cars sold in North America (I think it was in 2002). Notice the Echo is
first in the list of GASOLINE ONLY cars. Not to mention Diesel fuel now
costs on average more a gallon than unleaded @ $4.89 a gallon
Best Fuel Economy Cars
Other small cars make up the rest of the
list. Here are the top ten fuel-efficient model lines as listed
in MSN Autos, based on EPA data:
2002 Echo's had a timing chain, so there is no timing
belt that needs to be replaced. There are no leaks or problems with this
car. Everything works. Heat and A/C work great. Oil and Filter were just
changed 5/19/08. I would trust this car to drive to California tomorrow.
Car is very clean inside and has no big stains on the seats or interior like most Echo's.
Seems to be well taken car of.
It doesn't take much damage for the insurance company to total one of these
little cars, even if the damage is slight since they are so inexpensive to begin
with. No, I'm not a dealer or a car salesman. Like I said. I love these cars and try to buy them whenever I can with a
little damage to fix them back up. (I also have 2 parts car Echo's) If you are
interested let me know. I get many
requests for these cars with low mileage and then tend to bring top top dollar
with today's gasoline prices. Just FYI...
