Toyota Echo 2003 met all my expectations
By Bob Hoy on

Vehicle

2003 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

After a year of owning my 2004 Toyota Echo, the car has met or exceeded all of my expectations. It is light in crosswinds and has poor acceleration getting onto the Interstate highway. But given that, I smile all the way home as I pass the gas stations filled with gas guzzling SUVs and minivans (like I used to drive). I have been on several cross country trips and have been pleasantly surprised. No aching back, cramped leg muscles or headaches. And the sound system beats anything else I own. The car drives straight and the tire wear so far is very even. I keep finding nice surprises, like the hidden tray under the passenger seat, just right for holding CDs.

Favorite Features

gas milage (35 MPG over the entire first 12 months) location of instruments on dashboard. (Makes night driving much easier) Stereo sound system - WOW

Suggested Improvements

Did not come with cruise control! Toyota, what were you thinking?
