2009 Toyota Yaris 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Hi this is my second review the Title I used before this one is "I like mine". Since my last review I have experienced an episode of Unintended acceleration. After school was out I started my car my car was in neutral since it's a standard when my engine revved up like I was pressing the gas pedal So I turn it off & start it again & it's normal again so as I was heading home I was using the cruise control when out of no where it started accelerating so I pushed the brakes because usually it deactivates the cruise but this time it didn't. It got up 2 the speed of 95 MPH when I shift it to neutral I was able to stop but the engine kept revving. Stay away from toyota yaris's they are defective as well.


Best Features

NONE!


Worst Features

Fix these cars! Almost killed by scaring the hell outta me! There are other cases. Took it into Toyota they said nothing was wrong and that a standard transmission is incapable of sudden acceleration. News Flash They are!

2009 Toyota Yaris 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My mother bought this car for me last year. I commute everyday to school since in Montana we hav a lot of rural places. this car has awesome gas mileage and it has a smooth ride. The stock speakers are nothing special but I replaced them with JBL speakers i found in another Toyota that was wrecked. Oh and I also get lifetime oil changes. During the winter just get a sand bag n put it in the trunk these cars tend to slide their tales in a turn as I experienced a couple of times. Would recommend to anyone the manual is awesome skip the automatic I test drove one and it was pathetic.


Best Features

The Ride, lifetime oil changes, roominess, Stock stereo with JBL speakers are awesome!!


Worst Features

Not a fan of the seats I'm 6'2 and sometimes it gets uncomfortable and seats are firm. Add a cooler intake system too I did and I get 46 mpg on the highway and adds about 20 more Horsepower

Have the 4 door Hatchback with 4 cylinder. Can only go about 40 until the car warms up. Ice and snow build up between the frame and the tires, the scissor jack needs to be replaced


Best Features

heats up and cools down fast. comfortable seats both front and back Great gas mileage since gas is around $3 a gallon here Enjoy the 15 inch tires much better

2009 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this as my first brand new car and have not been disappointed one bit. In regards to the review by edmunds: When I test drove the automatic, I did notice more lack of power output. Its a good thing I was stubborn and would only buy a manual. Much higher power output. ;) And there is not a thing wrong with centrally placed gauges, its just different. It then allows for not 1, not 2...but 3 separate glove box storage areas.


Best Features

Great gas mileage (35 - 38 mpg) and very dependable. Great for parking in crowded areas with small spots and parallel parking! Great price!


Worst Features

No suggested improvements.
