2004 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


My 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 Features

Price, gas mileage, size, functionality (60/40 splitting rear seat, surprising interior room, storage, etc.), build quality, & reliability.

Worst Features

An optional turbocharger...you know, for the ego.
