Good qualities: The 2 door Toyota Echo
2001 is a fun car to drive - it zips
around, up hills even with the AC on.
It also has a fantastic 3 in 1 stereo
system with 6 speakers. It stands a
little higher off the ground,
especially for a small car, which is
very helpful in this era of SUVs. I am
a large person, and the Echo fits me
well, with plenty of head room and no
need for a seatbelt extender. I also
find the dashboard set up (with the MPH
in the center of the dash) to be easier
to read than peering through the
steering wheel, and I love all the
additional spaces built in to the dash.
Favorite features include: the 6
speaker stereo-CD system; the way the
car handles in city driving - it's
quick, easy, responsive; being higher
off the ground; the space inside the
car; it's great gas mileage.
Bringing down the inflated price for
such a basic car with no power locks,
no antilock brakes, no side air bags,
no power windows, and no power mirrors.
Including a tachometer and a graduated
engine temp would also be very helpful.
