This is the second Yaris I've owned. I had a 2008 that I bought in 2007. I wouldn't have bought another one if I didn't think they were good cars. My only complaint would be the cheapness of the interior and the paint job. Both of which failed me on my 2008. The gas mileage is a dream. I took my 08 Yaris from SC to MA last year and only spent $160 RT. Amazing!
I like the center gages. While most think this is a bother I actually like it b/c I can concentrate more on the road and see more in front of me. I also love the look of the Yaris and the fact that the back seats (in the hatchback) fold down and move up in the 2010.
Better interior is need guys and a better paint job. DON'T take your Yaris through the power sprayers at the car wash, this ruined my back bumper!
