I do not recommend the Yaris. Buy a 9th gen. Corolla instead.
By caro2012 on


2012 Toyota Yaris SE 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


I've owned my 2012 Yaris almost one year and I regret having bought it.
The only good thing I can say about it is the gas mileage (I average 33.5).

The construction is shoddy.
The front bumper is barely held onto the frame.
There is no foam under the rear bumper.
The front wheel wells are made of the thinnest, cheapest plastic I've ever seen used in this manner on a car.
The car lacks sound dampening and the noise intrusion into the cabin at highway speeds is deafening.
Not even the cheap stock stereo can drown out the noise.
The steering wheel does not telescope, leading to a very uncomfortable seating position.

Buy a 9th generation Corolla instead.
Much better quality. Same MPG.
