Question Toyota Echo Mileage Roll-Call

I'm bored and have nothing better to do. So I started this thread (like others have similarly in the PAST, but this is for NOW/Present, not from 2011, heh). It's always nice/cool to get up-to-date mileage polls from all you fine people, especially from the 200K+ group--but don't be shy, if you're not there yet--we/I <lol> still wanna know. So tell the world! How many miles (or km) do you have on your Echo? Let's see how many people respond with their numbers and make their Echos proud!

Please state the year and mileage of your Toyota Echo. Also color and if sedan or hatch if possible (Thank u @zythr !)



I'll go first.

2001 Toyota Echo (Auto) - 223K miles. Black-2Dr. coupe.

2-2000 blue coupes, granddaughter's has 213k miles, mine has 164k, both are manuals.

3rd is a 2001 dark green 4dr, also manual, just getting it road ready with 154k miles.

476k miles WOW! None of my 3 use oil, but they are babies compared to that number of miles.

Lol. I've taken it everywhere it's a very reliable car. When first got it salesman said just do the oil changes very little else to worry about. Got it in 01 and did first radiator change end of 2018. Even the original shocks were on till Jan of this year

2004 Echo RS hatch 5 speed (blue), 337K. Burns a teensy bit of oil, and only when it's cold (don't have to worry about it driving long distances). Mostly original I think, recently I replaced the tail light bulbs to see if they would get any brighter and they were the original bulbs (and the fresh replacements weren't any brighter lol).

Things for sure I replaced (I took possession of it around 300K): Both front wheel bearings, sway bar links, engine mounts, dashboard speakers (door speakers are still good), holding clip for the hood prop rod, and the bulb for the low temp light (initially I didn't even know that was a thing). Oh and the harmonic balancer which spun loose (suspect it was removed for some reason and not torqued down properly at some point in its life). EVAP is busted but "thanks" to Doug Ford it is a low priority

Edit: OK fine, A/C system doesn't hold pressure either. Will probably fix that in the next month or so

Had 3 wheel bearings replaced. Also had the gas down fill spout and shifter cable replaced. Neither of which I was happy with as this happened in year 8 and 9 and never had to do that with any of my previous cars.

Crappy painted rims are chipping. Lost some clear coat on the roof. Seems blue is the most problematic color for this to happen to. It's the color that shows up the most in a search on the problem

Somebody toss a small rock or flew off and up off a truck as there's a nice dent in the hood

Interior still nice and clean for 15 years

If you had it since new then your relationship with the car is very different than mine! I didn't expect much but I didn't pay much for it either. I have those original wheels but not installed as at some point the exact same thing happened. If I wanted to spend the time I could maybe sandblast & plasti-dip them... but I don't. :P I see also the bottom of your doors are shedding rust in the same places... but your rear quarter panel looks perfect!

No rust on the outside body, but do have some rusting on the inside door at the bottom

Forgot to mention, but 6 months after I got the car. Senior thought someone backing out of a parking spot was going to hit him, so his way of avoiding this was to put his car in reverse and step on the gas pedal. About $3500 damage to the front end

That was the only accident.

Better than the 6 weeks I owned my Tercel when I was rear ended at a stop light
