2001 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought my Echo after measuring the ground-to-seat height, and finding it similar to my elderly father's favorite chair, the one he could most easily use. The law of gravity aided his descent into his own car, but getting out of it was another matter. After 6 months his health and strength improved. The "master plan" was to then sell the Echo, but I'd grown very fond of it, enjoy driving it, and also appreciate the ease of access and superior side visibility for viewing scenery. The variable valve timing makes this little 1.5 liter engine seem peppy. I plan to keep my Echo forever, and I expect no problems for quite a long time.

Favorite Features

Ease of access, variable valve timing enhancing performance, good side window visibility and headroom.

Suggested Improvements

A bit more weight with a bit more motor would be a more stable vehicle. I live in the snow belt, and so I put Bridgestone Blizzaks on 4 extra rims for the winter. The result is very weather-worthy performance, better than my 4WD truck, to my surprise.
