2001 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I've put 54000 miles on the Echo in two years, and during that time the only glitches I've found were poor handling and soft paint. The poor handling was due to improper inflation of the tires causing a rearend skittering at high speeds. The steering is light and precise when the tires are properly inflated, and the handling improved greatly with a tire upgrade. So the only true complaint comes with the idea that a bug can go right through the paint. The hood needs to be sanded and painted.
Favorite Features
I weigh close to 300# and am over six feet tall, yet I can enter and exit the Echo with ease, better than ANY vehicle other than a mini van or suv. The placement of the guages is great: right under the mirror, and not impeded by the tilt steering wheel at any angle.
Suggested Improvements
The overdrive button needs to be placed where it can't be accidentally activated by an errant knee during a turn. The results of such a condition can be scary at 65mph.
