2004 toyota echo hatchback (michigan)

so, before i bought this from a friend of mine in ontario, i asked my wife if she'd be ok driving an echo for the next few years since they last forever. the answer was yes, but now she'd like something newer/nicer.

thus, im selling our newest-to-us echo RS

CAR IS LOCATED IN GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN

2004 Toyota Echo RS 5dr hatchback (canadian import)
Clean, green michigan title
179000km (111k miles)
5 speed manual transmission
1.5L 1nzfe engine
A/C blows cold
OEM accessory cruise control
OEM accessory cargo net
CD/mp3/bluetooth head unit
OEM rear bumper protector
Power locks w/ fob
Manual windows (power wasnt available)

RS model includes:
black interior
Sport seats
RS scuff plates
Side skirts
RS badge on grill
Leather steering wheel
Leather shift knob
Rear spoiler

60/40 split fold seats
4 seater (no center rear belt in hatchbacks)
Drawer under passenger seat
Upper and lower glove boxes

As its a Canadian car there is some surface rust on the K frame and a bit on the seam where the jack points are. None of it I'd call major. There is no rust on fenders but there was some rust on the A-pillars, which i've repaired. **at this point ive also sprayed the K-frame, suspension, and rear section of the car with rust inhibitor spray (similar to the oil sprays from canada).

Throws a P0442 for a small evap leak, a common issue with the echo but one that doesnt affect performance. I typically just clear it with my OBD2 bluetooth reader and my torque app. But I'm in Michigan and we don't have emissions testing.

brakes are good, struts/shocks/springs are good, ebrake works, windshield is good. air and cabin filters are new, recent oil change.

muffler is getting a bit loud as its the original, but a DME axleback can be bought online for $60usd, iirc. midpipes are $30 on rock auto. right now it just sounds like it has a performance muffler on it.

Currently on 15" gold Drag wheels and brand new hankook ventus v2 tires.

Overall its a solid car.

Daily driven so mileage will go up

Asking $3900 with the drag wheels and new tires

Are you able to tell me anything about the "OEM accessory cruise control"? Was this an option offered by Toyota in 2004? I have a 2005 model and I'm curious how difficult / expensive it would be to install cruise control. Where are the controls mounted?

Thanks in advance

iirc itís a rostra kit. Toyota used to offer it as an oem accessory but they discontinued it years ago. You can get a rostra kit for a Scion xB and put it in your echo though.

updated first post.

just did an oil change today.

price marked down to $3900 with the gold wheels and the new hankook tires

i'd like it sold before the snow flies. wife will start driving the #wrecho once the temps cool off (as the #wrecho does not have a/c).
