2007 Toyota Yaris Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I originally owned the Toyota Echo, which was truly the best car I ever owned. But I was hit by a red light runner and the car was totaled, I as well as the police and wrecker driver were amazed at the interior compartment, it had no damage at all but the front of the car was completely destroyed. So after that experience with the Echo , I went out and bought the new replacement for the Echo , which was a 2007 Yaris Sedan. The car is basic , because it was bought for my long 94 mile commute to work, but the car has quickly become my wifes favorite car, she always leaves behind her 7 passenger fully loaded SUV to drive my basic 5-speed Yaris, which she absolutely love. We love this car !
We have 3 kids which means 2 boosters and a large car seat, and we all 5 fit in the car, it also has a very large trunk. The car gets consistent 40 mpg , which is not nearly as good as the Echo but is still excellent. Dependability .
I have been driving my 2007 Yaris for 2 years. I bought the vehicle for mileage and I get 38 to 40 MPG without an exception. I drive 50 miles round trip daily. I will soon be driving 90 miles a day round trip and look forward to the gas mileage and savings. I have actually gotten 42 MPG on road trips. I bought this vehicle after my stepson purchased his Yaris. I was told it would take 4 weeks to get the vehicle, but the dealer had one in 3 days. I think this is a great car for commuting, but I will take my F250 truck when I am going on a long trip.
The only reason I bought and I am still driving the Yaris is for gas mileage.
More room in the front seat. I am 6'1" tall and weight 245#. The bucket seats are not designed for any comfort on a long drive. It is all I can do to walk after driving 3 or 4 hours, behind the wheel. I know the vehicle is small but there could be more effort put into the design of the front seat.
Surprisingly roomy inside. Fits a 6'1" 365 lb. person. Love the gas mileage. We drive it everywhere. So much fun to drive too. Doesn't do bad in the winter either. The only thing is there is road noise. But, it is an economical car not a full size one. We love it. We would definitely recommend it.
I love my Yaris, I'm hoping a 2009 or 2010 is coming out, because I would like to get another one.The front seats needs more padding, because on long drives it gets uncomfortable. I love the power it has to get out in traffic, and the gas mileage. It is sporty and peppy i have had people to stop and ask me about my Yaris. I also like that it holds its value very well. I traded my Echo to this Yaris. I liked the Echo's placement of the speedometer better where it was turn towards the driver, but I do love it in the center of the dash instead over the steering column. I'm short, so I've always had trouble trying to see the road because of speedometer being over the steering column.
Love the great gas mileage, sporty, stylish, really love the speedometer in the center of the dash.
More padding in the front seats, speedometer fixed the same as the Echo turned toward the driver.
The Toyota Yaris had turned out to be the best car that I have ever purchased. My wife was hesitant at first however she now thinks it is a great car. The mileage is hard to beat. It now has over 30k miles and if it is driven right, I can reach 44 mpg on 1 tank of gas.
My favorite features consist of the stereo, strong fan, easy to us cruise and the adjustable drivers seat ++ MPG
