I loved this car when I bought it- it has a fun, youthful design, great on gas and is fun & zippy to drive. Beware though- this car does not hold up in a crash. I had a head-on collision in 2009 in a Yaris that caused $10,000 damage to the car and bent the frame beyond repair- and the airbags did not deploy. I contacted Toyota about it and got a canned response stating that I wasn't hit hard enough to set off the airbags - but it was sufficient to bend the frame beyond repair and left me with a concussion from hitting my head among other injuries.
When I bought a Corolla my insurance rate dropped considerably due to the lower risk of death or severe disability in the event of a collision..
Safety is lacking in this vehicle. I would never buy another Yaris though I really liked the design of the interior and the fuel efficiency.
