2002 Toyota ECHO 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car because I was looking for the cheapest new car available. I had owned an '81 Tercel and I loved it. I figured the Echo took up where the Tercel left off. I loved the Echo immediately. 40 mpg, no trouble, fast, lots of fun to drive. Have a hard time not speeding with the get up and go manual transmission. If I can manage to get 3 kids' carseats into the back seat (which will be difficult, but possible) I'll never get rid of it. I might get laughed at because of the way the car looks, but I laugh every time I pass a gas station full of gas guzzling SUVs in the urban jungle. It's too bad they're not making Echo's anymore. It's a great little car.
