2001 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I've put 54000 miles on the Echo in two
years, and during that time the only
glitches I've found were poor handling
and soft paint. The poor handling was
due to improper inflation of the tires
causing a rearend skittering at high
speeds. The steering is light and
precise when the tires are properly
inflated, and the handling improved
greatly with a tire upgrade. So the
only true complaint comes with the idea
that a bug can go right through the
paint. The hood needs to be sanded and

Best Features

I weigh close to 300# and am over six feet tall, yet I can enter and exit the Echo with ease, better than ANY vehicle other than a mini van or suv. The placement of the guages is great: right under the mirror, and not impeded by the tilt steering wheel at any angle.

Worst Features

The overdrive button needs to be placed where it can't be accidentally activated by an errant knee during a turn. The results of such a condition can be scary at 65mph.
