2002 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I've always liked the Echo and my Taurus (great car) was finally fixing to die. Managed to get a white, 2-door, 5- speed, and I love it. Faster to 60 than my V6 Taurus, roomy as it's tall if short, and great economy. Everything about it is well designed and quality made. I'm a BIG guy and it fits me well. Also excellent view of the road. TONS of storage. They really thought this one out.
Peppy motor, 5-speed, firm seats, ECONOMY, build quality, and trick glow- in-the-dark escape handle in the trunk ;)
Cruise control should be standard but that's it. More items would be nice but that would change the nature of a cheap but quality quirky car.
