My 2nd Toyota Product - another winner!
By Steve Z on


2008 Toyota Yaris S 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


I purchased this car used in April 09 after my roommate's 94 Grand Am finally 'died'. He LOVES the car and uses it on weekdays and I get to use it on weekends. Mileage average is 30MPG with mostly short trips. Plenty of trunk room. My other car is an 08 Camry Hybrid and while the ride/performance are not in that league, the Yaris is a competent, safe performer. Radio reception is weak and it's hard to read the LCD screen for the radio settings - the CD sounds adequate. If you drive conservatively and like to get good MPG - this is a great car for you.

Best Features

The doors have the most solid feeling when they are closed of any car I've ever owned. The power windows are quiet/quick. Tight build quality, no problem getting used to center gauges, excellent steering feel, cold AC and adequate headroom for this 6 foot 250# driver. Much quieter than expected.

Worst Features

Use the 1.8 Corolla engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. Better radio displays. The speedometer is difficult to read at nite.
