2002 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Hi guys, after reading that the US
don't have Hatchbacks I thought I
would post my own review up, I have a
silver hatchback Echo, 4 door, 1.3L
engine that I purchased in July last
year. It is an excellent car, I was
trying to decide between it and the
Daihatsu Sirion (both were same price,
but the Sirion had electric everything
+ CD) but ended up going with the Echo
for it's solid construction. I haven't
regretted it, great car, very fun to
drive, handles well, reliable and you
can pack so much into it.

Best Features

The LCD dashboard, roomy roomy interior (I once moved a full size bookshelf into the Echo), the car doesn't feel tinny, speed ;-). Also I love how in a car park I can almost park diagonally and still be within the lines.

Worst Features

The hatchback has a tendency to be a bit unstable when going about 90m an hour, or in very windy conditions. (Probably because of the high roof) Really bad blind spot in the back windscreen. Central locking and power windows as standard.
