Yes the two lights (SET and the CC icon) both light up. It turns on/off with one button, another sets/minus 1 mph speed, another plus 1 mph speed, and the fourth cancels. (but I dont know what THAT means)
The CC is really all in there just minus the stalk. Three dealers deny this BTW. I told them Id pay them to install the stalk. Nope they say it cant be done!

Cancel should really be labelled "disengage". It is the same as pressing the brake pedal. If you later want to resume the last set speed, you can do so after hitting cancel.
Toyota dealers are so deathly afraid of doing anything which might void part of the warranty, they will not touch stuff like this.....

Ah thats what its for! Yeah I wanna resume all the time.

Thank-you all for the reply. Anyway I checked the car (my friend car..) thoroughly and everything looks fine.
She is the first owner of the car and she have all maintenance receipt (most maintenance were done at the dealer) to the car.
So I think I will go ahead and make her an offer of $1,900... I know some of you might say that is a little high but with the raising fuel economy these car tend to sell above book value...
Good luck to me and I'll check back in once I get the car.

Wait....did you say the belt? I thought all echo have timing chain which in term last over 200,0000 right or am I wrong on this one?
Jun 09, 2009 (5:18 am)
I meant the belts that power the power steering, alternator, air conditioning, and water pump. They are on the right side of the engine bay. You are right, there is no timing belt on an ECHO its a chain as you say. I wouldnt say it necessarily lasts 200,000 miles though! (but it might)

120K has just come and gone with an oil change and tire rotation, the little car is still ticking along just like clockwork, and the tires with the 65K-mile treadwear warranty appear that they will do at least 70K (now at 60K), so that's good.
This car STILL hasn't needed any repairs whatsoever. I like it that way, just hope I am not jinxing myself by saying it "out loud"!
