Vehicle2004 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewMy wife & I bought the Echo new in '01. My ego had inhibitions, but it was for her & I respected Toyota quality. I inherited a '97 Grand Prix GT. Although the Echo is a bit under-powered for my taste, I'd drive it over any car I've had. It's functional, fun & easy to drive, capable & economical. Edmunds latest review wasn't useful. It seemed they were evaluating it on standards it wasn't built for. If you want a gas- guzzling, gangly, glorified minivan (refering to SUV's), you won't be interested in a small car. We love it (including our 8-week old whose car seat fits great). And the crash test results Edmonds was so worried about later received 4 of 5 stars.
Best FeaturesPrice, gas mileage, size, functionality (60/40 splitting rear seat, surprising interior room, storage, etc.), build quality, & reliability.
Worst FeaturesAn optional turbocharger...you know, for the ego.
