Love the car but the seats are a problem. My wife and I never had back pain until we purchased this Yaris. But I like it enough to try to change the seats. This is an expensive proposition with minimal out of market options. I'll probably have to sell the car to save my back. However, driving the Yaris is fun and above expectations considering the price.
Fuel efficiency is remarkable. Forget about the hybrid.
An absolute must: better seat. They shouldn't have gone cheap on what can make long drives pleasant. Driving more than an hour is a serious issue for me. I feel like the seats were not selected well for the slightly larger american body.
