About Toyota Echo

Being the successor to the Tercel and precursor to the Scion brand, Toyota Echo was produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation from 1999 to 2005 as a subcompact car. Originally introduced to appeal to the younger United States buyers, Toyota Echo was low-priced. In different markets, it has different names. Available in hatchback, coupe and sedan body variant body styles, Toyota Echo was only available for one generation in the North American market.
The Toyota Echo sedan was launched in North America in 1999 for the 2000 model year as a part of Toyota Project Genesis, which is meant to bring younger buyers to the marque in the United States. As the predecessor of the North American Toyota Yaris, Toyota Echo then was powered by a 1.5 L inline 4-cylinder engine that could produce 108 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque and this engine sent power through either 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission. But the Toyota Echo hatchback was not sold in North America until 2003 and it came with four trim levels: LE, CE and RS. The powertrain was same as the sedan version. Both body styles were equipped with AM/FM 4-speaker audio, a tilt steering wheel, 14-inch wheels, optional all-weather package, antilock brakes, air conditioning, side airbags, a CD player and keyless entry.

Toyota Echo Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering an impressively roomy cabin and enjoying a reputation for higher than average reliability, Toyota Echo is a very economy car suitable for drivers with a limited budget. But if you do have an Echo, you had better be prepared in advance for these common problems:
First, braking failure is the most frightening issue for Toyota Echo drivers as every driver knows clearly that once the braking system has something wrong, the driving trip is exposed to unknown potential dangers ahead. According to some experienced Toyota Echo drivers, there are some helpful signs to diagnose this issue as early as possible. For example, at first, drivers could hear abnormal noises from underneath the vehicle when depressing the brakes; then the brakes also respond poorly and the brake pedal becomes pulsating as well as the parking brake becomes loose and there are leaking brake fluid on the ground. All these symptoms could be attributed to defective Echo backing plate, brake drum, hydraulic hose, and brake line.
Second, engine problems are also very tricky to deal with for Toyota Echo drivers as some of them do not have the correct idea about engine issues. In fact, a premature wearing engine is what you should pay more attention to. Some Toyota Echo drivers said the wearing often starts with abnormal noises from the engine, leaking fuel, black smoke, smelt fuel odor in the compartment and other un-working parts such as power steering and AC. If the vehicle also suffers from starting issues and the Check Engine Light is illuminated, then please inspect the Echo fuel pressure regulator, oil filter, fuel filter, fuel pump and drive belt right away.
Drivers have not attached enough importance to the routine maintenance, including Toyota Echo drivers. In fact, you should know that only solving problems from the source is the fundamental way to lengthen your Echo's lifespan. Leave the common transmission parts such as shift cable and clutch disc aside; some parts could not last a long time. For example, the door handle is used for entering or exiting the vehicle more conveniently, but it could fall off due to a high frequency of usage, thus, maintaining it regularly is an essential. Other parts such as door lock, emblem, fog light and so on also should be maintained on a regular basis for a comfortable and safe driving trip.
