    Great Car For Commuting And Very Adorable. — It's super cute, great mileage and relatively low priced. Acceleration is not very good, but it is only a little 4 cylinder. It handles pretty well and breaks are fine. It is fun to drive although it takes a heavy foot on the gas to get it going.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good gas-mileage.

    Cons: Not a fast car.

    Yaris Hb 2008 — No power at all, unless no AC No need for much repair very poor or appearance from inside since it is weak car, you need to push more gas, mean more consuming. it has a small body you will have fun driving it

    Pros: Small

    Cons: Weak

    The Yaris In Sudan — Not the best engine in the planet a 1.3L....Well they could have put a bigger engine say a 1.8 or 2.0 cause the braking is really good. The steering is sharp and the ride is acceptable but the engine is the biggest problem with this car but overall defenetly a great every day car.

    Pros: Fuel economy,Toyota build quality

    Cons: Acceleration,Road Noise,Engine noise

    Suprise Surprise! — I didn't expect this new Yaris 1.4 D-4D to be so good. It behaves well and does everything nicely. The handling is solid and fool proof. The thing brakes well with a nice pedal feel. The Toyota build quality is preceded by its reputation which it does honour. I quite like the futuristic virtual dashboard, although the rev counter readability could be improved in my opinion. Then we come to the engine: a 1.4 diesel. I know this engine from the Mini One D first generation where it produced a sluggish 75bhp. The evolved engine in the Yaris is a day and night difference from what I can recollect from the Mini. It's lively, powerful in the low & mid range and actually revs up without stepping on its breath too soon. I didn't feel underpowered at all. Very well done Toyota!

    Pros: Engine, build quality, value for money.

    Cons: Hmmm... let me think for another day or so. Maybe I can come up with something.

    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!

    Pros: Small but roomy, Great MPG, Large trunk, great maneuvering

    Cons: dash controls in middle of dash

    Almost Makes You Miss The Echo. — just terrible. it does not handle well, despite what others say. the engine lacks power, even for an economy car. fuel economy is not that impressive- the car i took on a test drive was averaging a mere 26 mpg, unimpressive for this class. i don't know why i come back to toyota, they just aren't as good as they used to be. anyone interested in this car- i strongly urge you to look elsewhere.

    Pros: not much.

    Cons: sloppy handling, engine feels weaker than other cars in this class, must opt for side air bags and abs, so-so mileage for the class, styling, toyota dealers can be rude.

    Worst Car On The Road. — This was the worst car I've ever driven. I strongly urge anyone wanting this car to reconsider. It had no power, and if one gets hit by a truck in this car, one should just dig a hole in the ground and bury the car. It is a mobile coffin.

    Pros: Nothing

    Cons: Everything
