2007 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I average 32mpg in city per tank, 40mpg pure highway driving. Ample storage. Enough power to get you moving. Throttle response varies from 0.2 sec (noticeable, but on par with other DBW cars) to well OVER a second on warm days (omg what is wrong w/ my car). Variable means you can't adapt to it because it changes. This causes premature clutch wear because rev-matching for downshifts cannot be done reliably. Toyota will not warranty clutch repair no matter how few miles. Mine is still holding on, but it has developed a shudder at 20k miles... it's just a matter of time. No tach available on the manual hatchback. I'm on my 3rd factory MP3 stereo.

Best Features

Turning radius is the best I've ever experienced, ample storage, gas mileage, price.

Worst Features

Fix the throttle issues, tachometer on all manuals (especially if throttle response isn't fixed), telescopic steering wheel would help driving position/comfort.
