At first, I wasn't keen about losing my sporty convertible and exchanging it for the Yaris; but gas was a major problem and the Yaris' mileage was the most influential factor for choosing it. However, I love my Yaris! Although it's an economy, four door, I think its bubble look is cute along with the metallic red color I chose. Mileage is amazing! I commute 80 miles every day and find I'm averaging around 40 mpg while dirving 80 mph! I think the stereo is great and highly recommend the power package option. The Yaris responds well for a 1.5L and definitely keeps up with the other cars on speed - it just needs a little oomph at first to pick up speed. This is the best economy car for 2008!
