Decent enough car, really slow.

2008 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This was my commuter that I bought a few months ago. On the good side I average about 34 MPG with around 70/30 city/highway. Another plus is the design, cute and well made. Unfortunately, the car has quite a few downs... such as the acceleration. It truly feels economy car like. If you really want any type of hustle from this car, you need to darn near floor it. It is also not that great to drive. The small thin wheels and comfort tuned cheap suspension don't make for very exciting backroads adventures. It is decently comfortable for front passengers and has a reasonable amount of space in back. But that driving position is just weird. Bottom line, it makes a good commuter/city car thats it.

Favorite Features

MPG, passenger comfort, cute exterior, aux jack, nice interior storage

Suggested Improvements

Acceleration, tiny trunk, bad to drive, 5'2" type driving position
