I actually just purchased a one-owner 2000 Toyota Echo that has currently 313K on it as my winter car. You would never know this car has 300K+ on it. As Steve mentioned, the 1NZ-FE has been known to exceed well over 300K with no major issues as long as normal maintenance is performed regularly. I consider it one of Toyota's most reliable engines currently out there.
I would be more concerned about body corrosion than a mechanical engine failure on these vehicles. The Echo I bought is showing signs of typical corrosion being exposed to the salt belt for many years.
