The Slowrider — Cheap to own, cheap to mod, fun to drive, but don't expect fast acceleration. However, racing strips do make the car about 100 times faster. SSK lowering springs SRI Front tower strut bar and the rest is purely cosmetic work

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great mileage, easy for tight turns & quick lane changes, park anywhere

Cons

Lack of steering control on windy highways, not that spacious, considered "expendable"

Convenient — I had my 2007 Yaris hatchback for about 4 years before I totaled it. Overall, I enjoyed this car. Performance wise, its a great car. I never had any mechanical problems with the car and it was great on mileage. I used while in my first 3 1/2 years of college and drove 200+ miles a week (commuting to school/work), which typically meant gassing up once a week for me. I mostly used it for college, which I would suggest this car for anyone who wants to save money on gas or unsure of what kind of car they'd need in college. This car can park almost anywhere in a parking lot or in spaces for parallel parking. However, if you plan on transporting stuff, I wouldn't suggest this car. The space in the backseats and in the trunk are very limited. With the exception of the lack of space the interior is pretty awesome. There are three glove compartments and roughly 9 cup holders in the entire car. The speedometer is located in the middle of the dashboard which is unconventional for most cars but is quite convenient for those who would like to backseat drive with you. The 2-door hatchback can be a hassle if you plan on driving more than one person in it though. This car is a great option if you want to save money or plan on driving primarily yourself or for commuting, but if you plan on having a family or know you'll be driving more than just yourself, I wouldn't suggest this car simply because there are plenty of sedans that are more spacious. Also bear in mind that when I totaled my Yaris, I was told this model is considered an "expendable" car, which means unless it is in great condition when you plan on getting a different car, don't expect to get too much for it, which makes sense because I only have seen corporations or businesses mostly use this model. Its a great investment and a great car for the most part, but I would not suggest it for long term use.

Pros

A fun, agile and very comfortable city car

Cons

1.3 engine is a bit slow. Go for the 1.5 or tune it up

35

Today, Tomorrow, Toyota — Performance - Well u can't expect a lot from a 1.3 but I'm thinking of tuning it up to get more power out of it. Starting with an ECU remap and take it from there. Build quality - Toyota Styling - Average but with a lot of potential and readily available parts for cosmetic modifications Cost of ownership - Like I said before..it's a 1.3 and it's a toyota. U do the maths Fun factor - 7/10 - Good car from the factory and can be improved a lot by a good engine and driveline tune up with the correct suspension setup. Again a good tuner car

Pros

Fuel Economy, perfect city car

Cons

not very fast

45

Get It! — 40mpg in the city, can't beat that.. Short trips with the family out of town are also incredible, can get to more then 50MPG on the highway, not much space for luggage, but a good roof rack can solve that problem.

Gas Mileage, It's cute, Low maintenance

Cons

Wish it had 4 doors, and power windows =(

Yaris! — Its a very " cute" car. Yaris's get excellent gas mileage, about 40mpg highway and 32mpg city. I have found it to have very low maintenance costs. Basically have just changed the oil every 5000 miles, and rotating the tires. 8

Pros

Buy it if you want less trips to the gas station and surprising amounts of room inside.

Cons

Don't buy if you want to race, corner fast, or do anything out of Fast and the Furious.

I Love My Car And Would Buy This Again And Again. — Love my car but I know it's not for everyone. It's super light, only 104 horses, and doesn't handle like a street rod by any means, but I trust the Toyota brand and I've had no major problems with it, only routine maintenance. I bought my car because it was cute and learned later it rocked with gas mileage and that I can park on a dime with it. It's small but roomy and I have had no problems getting where I want to go, in terms of acceleration or people not seeing me because of the size of the car. It might not be the coolest car around but it's fun and economical, which are not normally two things found together.

I Traded In My Ford Ranger As A Down Payment For A Second Yaris. — I love how Toyota moved the speedometer to the center of the dash. I installed my aftermarket navigation system behind the steering wheel. Love how the 3 door hatchback has 4 glove boxes. As a disabled person, I need things like automatic and power steering, which the Toyota Yaris offers. I got 35 mpg highway, which beats any other car I have ever owned.

Pros

Usual Toyota reliabilty and build quality, Quite quick, Good economy, Roomy for size, Good brakes

Cons

Driving position far too high, Ride quite hard, Not as sporty as the SR badge suggests, Electronic aids cannot be turned off

Toyota Yaris 1.8 Sr 2007 5 Door — Not as qiuck as other modern hot hatches. The 130 bhp 1.8 VVTi engine produces a steady amount of torque across the range, but lacks a much needed power band to give it that sporty edge. If driven sensibly, the onboard economy calculator has read over 50mpg with luggage on board. Its not the best looking car about. The ride is quite firm all the time. Handling is superior to other cars I have driven in this class. The car sits on standard 17" Yokohama rubber, which provides huge amounts of grip with the electronic traction and stability controls. These interfering aids however cannot be turned off. Because of this reason the car is not that inspiring to drive. It lacks that direct feel that is needed to drive enthuseastically. But with 9 airbags on board, its a safe way to go quickly.

2007 Yar — I love this little car! I have 45,000 miles on it in 18 months. I get an average of 35-41 MPG. This car is PERFECT for roadtrips. It has been to Vancouver, San Francisco, Reno, Houston, Chicago, Seattle, Sacremento and back. This summer, I averaged 39-41 MPG and that was driving in rush hour from Hugo to South Mpls.
