Everything I wanted
By Bill on
2009 Toyota Yaris 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car because I wanted a car that will get me from point A to point B, & to do it in reasonable comfort & with 100% reliability & to do so over 200,000 miles. I've not been disappointed in the first 5,015 miles. No problems, no surprise mechanical sounds, & the manual tranny is as smooth as an automatic tranny. I changed the oil at 600 miles & wish I'd changed it at 500 miles because it was BLACK. Subsequent oil changes at 1,500 mile intervals have been relative clean. I really like the TIGHT 180 degree U- turn diameter
42.2 mpg over 5,015 miles, 38 Degree AC temp at the air outlet when outside air is 107 degrees, 186 degree heat temp at the air outlet when outside is 45 degrees, The instrument panel in the center of the dashboard is where the panel should have been right from the beginning for all autos
The horn is an embarrassment, emitting a squeak instead of a HONK! I don't like the multiple rear window reflections of the headlights of cars behind me. I wish there was a drivers side overhead compartment where I could store sun glasses.
