Good MPG, not much else.

2008 Toyota Yaris 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Good all around car. It gets good mpg in the city. I like the low cost of ownership as well. It has a slightly asthmatic sound when driven at only 30%. I think the car should keep the low weight but get the 1.8 from the scion xd/corolla. This would give it a more acceptable rate of freeway merging. The interior finish seems kind of cheap although better than the Chevy Aveo. And the rear defrost must be switched off manually, sort of annoying.

Best Features

Average 32 mpg with 90% city driving. Low curb weight.

Worst Features

More power, add either a 6th gear or a taller 5th. Make the shift action more positive. I have a problem with the blind spots looking out of any angle other than straight ahead. Cheap feeling interior materials.
