I bought my car last may in 2007. I saw it on line and just new I had to have it, its a fun car to drive and very reliable. The gas is great! The only bad thing I would have to say about the car is that it doesn't have great pick up, but you have to expect that because it a four cylinder. Over all excellent car!
Big trunk, great gas miles, very cute look.
Needs better pick up, if you get the Yaris make sure you get black or dark gray seats, I have little beige and you get everything on the side panels on the door
I bought this car new in Sept of 07 and it was the best decision I could have made. Not only is it very reasonably priced, but you can't beat the gas mileage. I average 38-city and 43-hwy. It rides very smooth, easily gets up to highway speeds, there is a ton of room on the inside, big trunk and good sound system. Not to mention, you get Toyota excellent reliability. I'm pretty sure the body will fall off before the engine dies!! I'd say this is one of the best car you can buy right now!
The interior design, I love the speedometer and stuff in the middle. Seats are comfortable. I also like the color options. You have to get the power locks and windows (why do they even offer manual?).
Some one dropped the ball on the placement of the cup holders... haha!
I purchased this car to get me from school and work to home. I've been driving a lot and my new Durango was killing me. This is a 3rd car for my family and I wasn't sure I'd like driving a car again, but I love it. I haven't driven the truck since I got it! I bought this car used, but it only had 17,000 miles and was clean. It is so fun and comfortable to drive. Peppy, handles well, rides pretty good on the freeway doing 80mph. My husband is 6'3" and fits well and my daughter sits behind him with plenty of room. I consistently get 39 mpg even going 80! Can't beat that!
Peppy and fun to drive. Comfortable, roomy, and what great mileage for the money. The trunk is huge and I don't feel like I'm driving a small car, especially when I'm used to big SUVs. I really love my car!
Smoother ride, better road noise control. But what can you really expect for a car in this price range doing 80 on the roads in Michigan?!
I have been loving driving my small car. It's fuel efficient and I've already logged on 30,000 kms in just a little over a year. I drive 38 kms to work one way each day and am just as comfortable as I was in my previous car, which was slightly larger. I am so thankful I went to such a fuel- efficient vehicle now that gas prices have skyrocketed. I laugh at the gas guzzlers passing me each day. I love my little car. I made the right choice for my lifestyle.
Something to hold the trunk lid up when open. It is very light, but needs a spring to hold it open when in use. Radio base is factory set too high. Needs toning down so the owner can adjust according to what they prefer.
We had a bad accident in this car. It was hit from behind while sitting still in traffic. It was estimated the other vehicle was traveling at between 40 and 50 miles an hour. While there was extensive rear end damage the cabin was not breached. My wife was injured but did walk away from the scene. If someone had been in the back seat they would have been injured but I do believe they would have walked away as well. It seems the car held up when you take into account the speed of the other car.
