Good MPG, not much else.

Vehicle

2008 Toyota Yaris 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Good all around car. It gets good mpg in the city. I like the low cost of ownership as well. It has a slightly asthmatic sound when driven at only 30%. I think the car should keep the low weight but get the 1.8 from the scion xd/corolla. This would give it a more acceptable rate of freeway merging. The interior finish seems kind of cheap although better than the Chevy Aveo. And the rear defrost must be switched off manually, sort of annoying.

Favorite Features

Average 32 mpg with 90% city driving. Low curb weight.

Suggested Improvements

More power, add either a 6th gear or a taller 5th. Make the shift action more positive. I have a problem with the blind spots looking out of any angle other than straight ahead. Cheap feeling interior materials.
