Great Purchase
By Mike on


2008 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Considering the # of reviews I read before purchase, I feel it is my duty to pass on the word that Toyota has produced a real winner. Although, I'm a very conservative driver, I am getting upwards of 800 kilometres on a single tank! The manual transmission is exceptionally smooth and seems to be a helpful tool during inclement weather. Exterior design is beautiful, perhaps a bit of a head turner, but the interior location of the centre mounted instrument cluster took some getting use to. I wish that cruise control was a factory option as I spend a lot of time on the highway. The car seemed so small when I took delivery, but now, vehicles like I use to drive, seem unnecessarily large.

Best Features

Fuel economy, manual, exterior looks and heater.

Worst Features

Cruise control is needed. I see that it is available for 09, but only in an upscale package that surpasses in my opinion economy status. It would be nice to have a manual seat adjuster and a better stereo. Often, it is hard to clearly hear music at highway speeds.
