After buying old cars that I can fix my own, (old VW,and fords) until major jobs (transmission, etc.), I have gotten tired and bought this car. The first thing I looked for was fuel consumption. I wanted a hybrid, but at my federal wages it was out of my sight. Then I found 07 yaris 2 dr, 5sp M. It has the feel of my old bug, but more room for storage, great fuel consumtion and great price range.
Full view of road (massive view), gas consumption (incredible 2nd to hybrid), power when I need it (5spd M), sub-compact (parking), great handling.
Would LOVE RPM gauge for shifting. I am doing it by feel, less compartment.
