Tempted by a $1k Echo sedan 5MT

2003 5-speed with 222,000 km / 138k miles.

"Rust holes in the rockers". AC doesn't work. Both are fine with me!

2003 Toyota Echo for sale. Decent shape. Selling as Is where is. NOT SAFTIED. AC does not work and rocker panels have holes. No other known issues. Mechanically very sound. Great little car. Very reliable and cheap on gas and insurance. Currently being driven daily. No cruise. Manual trasmission. Power locks. Manual windows. 222000KM. Clutch replaced at 190000km. Starter and charcoal canister replaced within the last 2 years. Only selling because we are upgrading to a newer car. Asking $1000 obo.

This is the first car to tempt me since that $900 Honda Fit, the main difference being this one is slightly outside my "beater car radius", being 50 km away. I'm standing firm and not going to look at it. Other opportunities will come up!
