Yaris 4 door

2010 Toyota Yaris 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
Bought this vehicle as a second car that would be ideal for parking in the city. It fits the purpose there. Surprisingly sprite for a small engine and find that I'm more than able to keep up with the larger vehicles on the road. It needs more input from the driver than larger cars, but that makes it more engaging and does add a little to the "fun factor!" It's a good car for what it was built to do. Cheap commuting and relatively comfortable with it. Throttle tip in can be a little aggressive and sudden, but have gotten used to it after 3000 miles.
Gas mileage. Averaging 36mpg with mixed driving. Dead easy to find a parking space in the city. Relatively spacious in the back with the rear seats reclined.
Better sound system (it's pitiful). Better positioning of the gas pedal as it is set high and causes foot fatigue on long journeys. Instrument panel needs placement in front of the driver.
