2002 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
The engine in this car is hot. It out accelerates the Ford Focus ZX3 (130 hp engine) I used to have, and gets 38 mpg vs the 25 mpg the ZX3 automatic got. The airconditioner is plenty cold. The ride is smooth and quiet up to 80mph. The suspension is more like a sports car - compliant but firm, with grippy tires (the 175's stick pretty darn good). The only quality control issue is a tiny wind whistle on the driver's side at high speeds - otherwise, famous Toyota quality at a bargain price.
Favorite Features
High gas mileage. Very comfortable ride. Responsive steering. Good sound system, even the basic kit. Grippy stock tires. Trunk light, remote trunk release, remote fuel flap release. Nice (not luxo) interior materials choices - doesn't look like a velour bedroom.
Suggested Improvements
Telescoping steering wheel (it already tilts). Bigger wheels and tires (for appearance more than performance. Long life spark plugs (stock are not platinum tipped). Metal dipstick instead of warpable plastic.
