2008 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
The Yaris climbs our bluffs at a respectible 60 mph. Then again, I didn't expect a 1.5L to boil tires. My thoughts regarding room in the Yaris. I am 6'2" and 320 pounds. Nuff said on that. My Yaris is a blast to drive on our back roads. Other owners smile and wave at you when they go by. It has been a long time since I've owned a car that I liked as much as the Yaris. I will recommend to any one, try this little "sports" car. Mileage to date, 29.76 city and 42.36 highway. And it doesn't even have 400 miles on it yet.
Sporty looks, leg room for "big" guys, park on a dime,turn on a dime,and I like the electric steering. Very nice in the twisties. Storage everywhere.
Better selection of tire and wheels. Toyota needs to tone down the cost of the options. A 14000.00 car doesn't warrant 2500.00 tire/wheels. TRD too expensive. Room for a 6 disc CD system, yet not offered.
