Go Out And Buy One. < Mine Is Unfortunately Up 4 Sale Due To Family Tragedy. — This is Another great product from Toyota. VERY fuel efficient,lots of extras for an ENTRY LEVEL TOYOTA, my sons have a blast with the MP3 Playback. The Power Package is a very WELL combination of Bells and whistles. Very Nice Car to own espescially when Gas Pumps are Smiling at you at $4.29 a gallon. My Dad drove this Yaris and got 34-37MPG CITY & 39-41MPG HIGHWAY, now thats my Dad NOT PUTTING THE PEDAL TO THE METAL. GREAT, GREAT automobile during this Rising Fuel Prices ERA. FUN TO DRIVE-PIECE OF cake to DOUBLE Park. BUY ONE and SEE for YORSELF WHAT I am Talking about.

Yaris — I rented the base model (two-door) for one day. I know Yaris comes with hatchback version and a sedan version. It runs pretty well, saves gas, even able to make U-turn in a narrow street (not K-turns). Parking alongside the street, sure, is not a problem. Great for city-driving.

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

Awesome Little Econobox — I have a background in performance cars - I used to own a supercharged BMW and a twin turbo RX7. The Yaris is incredible fun to drive. Handles like a go-cart, and can do twisty mountain roads exceptionally well, despite being FWD. It only packs a 1500cc four-banger putting down 106 HP, but it only weighs 2000 pounds. It'll run a 16 second quarter mile with no modification, which means in practice that it can keep up with most stock Mustangs and Camaros pretty well. In the twisties, it handles as well as my BMW or Mazda did any day, which in practice, means I pass most people on mountain roads with no problems. It gets better: with the worst possible driving for economy - going as fast as possible and WOT as often as possible, it still gets 35 MPG. The car is inexpensive to buy (around $10,000), and with a little effort can get 45 MPG, making it inexpensive at the pump. In terms of utility, the car has more nooks and crannies to stash things than any other car - ever. With the possible exception of the VW Passat (umbrellas in the doors?). The Yaris can seriously carry as much as most small pickup trucks or SUVs. Or, it can carry 4 adults with luggage in comfort. The car is a Toyota, and feels well built. Toyota is renowned for reliability, and with a little care, I feel confident that this car will last a VERY long time. My only real complaint is that the driver seating position is a little van-like - I feel like I should be a little closer to the ground.

2008 Toyota Yaris — When I bought the Yaris I tested out a couple of other economy cars, but the Toyota Yaris was far more appealing. The engine is snappy, the automatic transmission is highly responsive, the I-pod hook up is a great option, and the fuel efficiency is great as well. It still gets comments from people about how cute it is, and questions about the mileage (avg. 35-38). My only complaint about the car is that because it has a nice entry height/ground clearance (5.5"), it doesn't have the best cornering ability. I am willing to deal with the compromised cornering in order to get in and out of it with ease. It is also easy for my disabled mother/grandmother to get in and out of. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants snappy, inexpensive, feature packed, comfortable, and unique looking vehicle

Pros

Fuel Mileage, solidness, quality, incredibly well designed AND good-looking interior, smart uses, easiest to park ever, responsive handling

Cons

don't feel or look cool at all when driving, bad-ish trunk space, not the most exciting car to rev at a red light

65

If You're Not Racing, N U Don't Care How Cool You Look, U Can't Pick A Better Car — Fuel mileage is amazing, I've never seen a car with even half as many genius compartments and REALLY WORKING cup holders in my life and I've been in lotsa minivans, quite accurate responsive steering accelerates not bad, peppy engine revs up to 6500rpm redline almost instantly, but low power output makes it pretty boring if u want to drive crazy, feels soooo solid, no squeaks or rattles or vibrations whatsover and feels as sound-insulated as the luxury cars I've been in. Isn't even tiny on the inside at all for the passengers, just the trunk space is small.

Love My Yaris — It took me a lot of time to decide on a car. One thing I wanted was great gas mileage. I finally decided on the Toyota Yaris. It is the perfect car for me. For a small car it is extremely roomy and has a large trunk. The performance is more than I expected and I average 38 MPG. It took a little while to get use to the dash controls being in the center of the dash instead of over the steering wheel but that is okay now. It I had to do it again I would buy the Yaris...Toyota quality cannot be beat!

Hutterite Hatchback — Great little commuter car. Don't like the transmission (automatic). With the car's electric throttle and slushbox, this thing shifts at weird times on hard acceleration or when passing cars... was not fun on road trip. Decent room inside of car though... great for in the city.
