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.
