Overall not bad

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


This month is my Yaris' first birthday and being my first new car, it has been a pretty decent experience after 15,000 miles. Very reliable car, no engine issues, manual is almost... fun sometimes. Air works well, and stereo is not bad. Only issues I've had are the easily scratched panels, very annoying... also the panels where seat belts are get gauged. My Camry had a more resilient interior. Gas mileage is excellent, best I got was 360 miles to one tank on the hwy, and for an 11 gallon tank, that ain't too shabby. The exterior damages way too easily also. Bumpers on this car are horrible and expensive to repair, try not to back into anything, its going to be over 500 to fix. Good car overall.

Best Features

Peppy, good gas mileage, reliable, good basic transportation.

Worst Features

better interior materials for less scratches, better bumpers that don't cost an arm and a leg to fix, more tech options: bluetooth, volume controls, real ipod connection, etc.
