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


I used to drive a 1991 Firebird which got 16 mpg at best. It got totaled and I went hunting for a new car in hopes for a Civic. The same day, I drove home in my Yaris. From my studies, I severely underestimated this car. I love it to death. I get more than double the gas mileage and I'm hoping that the reliability will be on par with my grandmother's '96 Camry, which has NEVER been in shop for anything but wear and tear. Fun to drive and I love the storage. My buddy bought a 2008 Focus and he says, "I shoulda bought a Yaris" I don't regret the purchase and I can't wait to get it paid off.

Best Features

30-40 MPG, Good sound system, peppy little car, can park ANYWHERE.

Worst Features

Work with the automatic shifting: move the 3rd gear and Overdrive in opposite spots (I ate up half a tank of gas before realizing I was in 3rd and not Overdrive).
