Nice Little Car
By CharlieA on
Vehicle2002 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewA lovely little vehicle. I am 6'2" tall. I sit upright in the driver's seat, with plenty of room above the top of my hat. The only negative comfort feature is the foot rest for the left foot, sized for a midget. That can be uncomfortable, particularly for long drives. I waited three months for delivery of my Echo from Japan, in order to get an Antilock Braking System (ABS); a very worthwhile choice.
Best FeaturesThe center-mounted instrument cluster can be read easily through the upper, distance lens of bifocals. Great radio-CD-cassette player. 35 mpg gas mileage. Good, fast-appearing heat on cold winter days. ABS has already saved me from accidents three times in 30,000 miles.
Worst FeaturesMUST have a cruise control; that's THE major deficiency. Coolant temperature guage would be SO much better than warning lights. Power door lock switch should be mounted on door, not center console. Electrically-heated side view mirrors would be very desirable.
