2009 Toyota Yaris S 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
Traded in a 95 van that got 13 MPG on a good day and wanted a green vehicle. So far I really like my car. In the summer I average 36-38 MPG. In the winners it's more like 33-34. I travel about 60/40 (highway/city) in a hilly area. On a flat highway I get 42+ mpg. The Yaris is not a luxury car but it has a decent ride and plenty of pep. In fact it's more comfortable to drive than my LeSabre because the seats are high, and you don't feel like you're sitting on the ground like you do in a Corvette or Firebird. The center console takes some getting use to but at night you don't have any distractions and it's easier to see. Good air and heat. It's a very fine economical car
MPG, cup holders. MP3 hookup. I got the bare bones vehicle without the power locks/windows.
I wish I had gotten the 4-door. You can enter the backseat from both sides, but only the passenger side seat slides forward and back without extra effort.
