Vehicle2000 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe
ReviewI've had this car for 4 years, just
hit 72,000 miles, and love it. I've
used it for everything from in-town
commuting (tight turning radius and
tiny spots it can fit into are
key) to driving from Boston to San
Fransisco nonstop (the front passenger
seat makes a suprisingly comfy bed).
Obviously, the 42-44mpg (highway) is
great. It has more than adequate
managed the mountains on I-80 just fine
at 75-80mph (although some downshifting
was needed). The best part for me is
that since I do routine maintaince
myself, and it hasn't needed any
repairs AT ALL except for replacing a
burned-out taillight bulb, it's been
dirt cheap to operate.
Best FeaturesLots of cupholders (five!) and other storage spaces, with a large bin on either side of the radio, another under the wheel, and two gloveboxes (one nice and large, one small).
Worst FeaturesA little more sound insulation would be nice, as road noise is rather loud at high speed. Also, better tires - the ones that came with the car were okay, but once replaced by a set of good all- seasons (and snow tires in the wintertime) the car performs much better.
