2001 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Almost right away used it in place of broken down Plymouth minivan for a reenactment. Were able to haul everything we had in the minivan in the Echo--more careful packing. Drove it to Alaska over the Alaska Highway and back summer of 02. 10,748 miles. Averaged 38 mpg--best was 43 worst 32 (driving in Montana with A/C on and somewhat over speed limit if there was one). Only problem whole trip was the A/C condensor line came off because of washboard road--Alaska Hiway--Yukon Ty--reconnected it dried floor & kept going. Wife used it to commute to school and work--both long commutes. Never failed her. Work is closer now so we'll see how it does for shorter commutes.
Favorite Features
Mileage Speedometer placement Storage High seats make entry/egress easy Comfort Reliability-OK we paid more for it but other than maintenance we've had no repairs. Our initially cheaper Neon was always in the shop. Considering repair cost and inconvenince Echo is cheaper to own
Suggested Improvements
More range settings on intermittent wipers--only one now. Make LH side view mirror adjustment more in reach--RH too I guess. Make front windows go down all the way. Make spare tire well large enough to accept a full size spare.
