Either a Viper remote start, or an amp.

Yeah, it's one of the cleanest I've seen in a very long time. The only tick against it was one very common problem. In the non-RS trim levels, the seat material is absolute shit and will develop a tear in the driver's side left thigh bolster. I was hoping with such low milage, she would have been spared this. No such luck.

Otherwise it is practically mint.

Yea but you got lots of cars we didn't. Pontiac gto to name one of many. Not to mention U.S. trim ALWAYS looks better than Canadian trim.

That is one clean echo tho.

The previous owner clearly took great care of it. You added some nice wheels. Looks great!

My daughter is actually the 4th owner. Owner 1 was an older lady. Ditto for owner 2. 3rd owner was a younger guy who bought it last spring and added window tint, upgraded sound system, and the set of summer wheels shown above.

Super clean, congrats to her. I don't blame you for wanting it lol. Throw a sparco seat in there to take care of the tear and you're good to go for a long time.

That's a great-looking car, definitely does not look 15 years old! You got any interior photos?

That's a really clean interior! Really amazing that every single owner took great care of this economy car.

I'd been watching the Echo market daily for almost a year for her. This one was truly an exceptional offering.

Not even any salt stains? Wow! I'm completely blown away that this car was kept in such great condition. Often, economy cars wind up trashed. They get treated like throwaway cars, because they're so cheap. Most Echos and Yaris'es I see on the road in "real life" look kinda sorta beat up. By which I mean dings, dents, scratches, dirty interior, etc. Your patience really paid off. I don't think you'll ever find another one this clean.
