2001 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


We purchased our '01 Echo in late
September of 01 & have loved it since
day one! Originally, we were looking
at Camrys & Accords but didn't want to
fork over $25K+ for a four door sedan.
We initially purchased the ECHO
because of the reasonable price ($13K)
& awesome mileage, but soon fell in
love with the all of the storage, cool
gauges & overall reliability of the
car. We've owned it for 3+ years now &
have not had it in the shop for
anything other than an oil change! We
always get lots of compliments and
questions about it (mileage, cost,
etc.) & recommend buying one to anyone
who asks! We disagree with the
Editor's review completely & think you
will love your ECHO as much as we do

Best Features

GREAT mileage! MUCH roomier than it looks from the outside! Husband & I are both over 6 feet tall & have more than enough room in the front seats, plus we have two car seats for our kids in the back seat! Trunk is as big if not bigger than our Malibu's! Great price for an AWESOME CAR! RECOMMEDED!!

Worst Features

Would like more "standard" features. We bought a "semi-loaded" one with power locks, CD, anti-lock brakes, AC, automatic transmission, but still don't have power windows (which I don't miss near as much as I thought I would) or cruise control (which my husband misses). Pro's definitely outweigh tho!
