My 2nd Toyota Product - another winner!
By Steve Z on
Vehicle2008 Toyota Yaris S 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI purchased this car used in April 09 after my roommate's 94 Grand Am finally 'died'. He LOVES the car and uses it on weekdays and I get to use it on weekends. Mileage average is 30MPG with mostly short trips. Plenty of trunk room. My other car is an 08 Camry Hybrid and while the ride/performance are not in that league, the Yaris is a competent, safe performer. Radio reception is weak and it's hard to read the LCD screen for the radio settings - the CD sounds adequate. If you drive conservatively and like to get good MPG - this is a great car for you.
Best FeaturesThe doors have the most solid feeling when they are closed of any car I've ever owned. The power windows are quiet/quick. Tight build quality, no problem getting used to center gauges, excellent steering feel, cold AC and adequate headroom for this 6 foot 250# driver. Much quieter than expected.
Worst FeaturesUse the 1.8 Corolla engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. Better radio displays. The speedometer is difficult to read at nite.
