I bought my 08 Yaris sedan in May after trading in my 01 Mustang. Going from a Mustang to a Yaris was a little scary. But the savings in insurance and gas balanced out the decision. Right now I'm undecided on the Yaris. I love that it's fun to drive and packs a good punch for a car with a 1.5L engine. However, in the month and a half I've had it, it's now been in the shop twice. When the car was 3 weeks old the keyless entry stopped working. Now, after the car shuttered violently, a bearing broke in the AC compressor, causing the AWFUL noise. I got it home, limping. The car was towed yesterday (how embarrassing for my brand new car!) and I'm now waiting for it get done at the shop.. again.
Fun to drive. Gas mileage. Interior "looks" (I have the upgraded interior).
