I have had Toyotas for over 13 yrs, one had 183,000 miles on it. Had to drive over 300 miles to get the model Yaris I wanted. Picked up my new Yaris; it's quiet, peppy, fun to drive, stable, cute, well-placed intrument panel, roomy, easy to drive and park. I drive a LOT and this car has been getting 42-44 mpg. average. The turning radius is sooo much fun, I drove in circles just to play. "Turns on a dime, runs on loose change!!" I did tons of research, trust me this is the best deal for the money!
Gas mileage, price, comfort, peppy, fun, handles great, turning radius, manual transmission, cuteness - it makes me smile, color (blazing blue). It's a Toyota!
My only issue with this car is that in high winds, I can feel it, but that's part of driving a sub-compact car. Sell more, so the people driving huge vehicles will see more "Yari"! (It's a small car and some people in huge SUVs don't always see me.)
