Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback — Its a great car, I like how smooth its to drive and how comfortable its comparing to its size, its NOT the car for a family, maybe a family with one or two kids would be fine, I love how sufficient with fuel its, and very powerfull comparing with its engine size.

Toyota Yaris 2d Is A Great Car — This is one of the best Toyota cars - very reliable, functional, great mileage, and great for city parking as well. could not ask for better car for a single person, or for a couple who commutes. I highly recommend this car.

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.

A Good Family Car — The front fascia could be a lot better. The ride is a bit too hard, but handles well because of that. Interior is very nice and modern, quite spacious for a sub-compact. And the engine is very efficient yet powerful for it's size.

Affordable, and cheap to drive!

Cons

Road noise

Fun Little Inexpensive Car — the reviews that I have read say that it doesn't handle very well, but I would completely disagree. It has such a short wheelbase, and weighs so little, that it handles quite well, and I plan on taking it out to the local autocross track. It rides very smooth, but is a little noisy on certain road surfaces. The acceleration is adequate, no problems pulling into traffic or anything, which I think is also helped by the lack of weight. Overall, I very much enjoy driving it, and would recommend it to other buyers looking for an affordable, gas saving car.

Gas Mileage is the bomb

Cons

no reason to avoid this car

A Great Car To Drive — The acceleration is great, goes from 0-60 in hold on tightly.. it brakes very well and has no problem doing 60 around a corner most cars need to slow down to 45 to do. Hasn't needed any repairs to it and is great on gas, it is just an awesome car and can handle a 6'5 guy in it with room for his legs and thats saying something for a sub-compact.
