Vehicle
2001 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Bought used in may 2005 with 24,940 miles on it. It now has 34,600 miles on it. Had to fix a/c all new o-rings + recharge Freon for $150.00. Just fixed tie rod end link bushing-left front side $75.00. I avg 27 mpgs in winter short trip cold motor. The 1 long highway trip I took (150 miles round trip) I got 40.5 mpgs with the auto trans + a little a/c usage. Since I owned it I am averageing 32.5 mpgs. I had 195/60 14 tires put on but they had high rolling resistance. I didnt know this at the time I got them so I lost about 3 mpgs. I save every gas reciept. This car needs a more powerfull a/c system it only holds 17 oz of Freon crosswinds are hell in this thing on the highway. City driving is ok.
Favorite Features
Gas mileage. Ease of entry-exit seat height. Cassette with cd player nice.
Suggested Improvements
This car could have been great if Toyota would have done the following: 1- put 195/60 15 tires with low rolling resistance on it 2- lowered the roofline 4 inches 3- a 2door hatchback model 4-more powerfull a/c system. 5- put in 4 gauge pkg from 03-06 corolla in front of the driver
