Two days ago I blacked out while driving in my 2008 Yaris and rolled it twice, landing on the roof. The jaws of life were used to cut me out. I walked out without a bruise. This car body may be small but it is sound. True, it may have some tendency to roll, that could have been part of it, but in the end the car served me.
The turning ability, the small size for parking in city parking, the great gas mileage.
I had a manual (the car is toast now) and shifting lacked the clarity I was used to in a Jeep Wrangler.
