- Gas Mileage
Great car but how are you all getting 40 mpg??? Mine is brand new and Im getting 27mpg at most. I drive 80mph on the freeway so you all must be going 55mph. when you post your mpg, you should post your average mph as well. i can get 100 mpg if i putt around at 25 mph and push in the clutch going downhill....read morehide

- Fuel economy is as good as advertised, has been very dependable, with no problems.
- Don't like the Dash board center location. Its distracting to look in the middle while driving
The car has been very dependable, and as the price of gas rises, the purchase looks better and better.
My only complaints are the location of the dashboard, and interior comfort. It takes a while to get use to the Speedometer being located in the center. The location has already cost us one ticket. Also, if you are a big person, I don't recommend this car. I am 6ft 3inches, and there is not much leg room at all. But I bought this car for my wife, and since she is smaller, its not an issue with her....read morehide

- Great mileage, good looking exterior, well priced!
- This car is light, so strong winds are felt while driving.
This car has met all of my expectations. I've already driven over 13.000 miles in my Yaris S and I'm still excited to get behind the wheel. This car is perfect for anyone who is concerned with fuel economy, cost and reliability with an attractive exterior.

- Great gas mileage, good leg room both front and back for a small car, Looks great.
- odd places for cup holders.
Overall I don't understand how this car only came in 22nd compaired to small affordable cars. It's lower priced and has better gas mileage than other all the other cars I looked at. In my opinion it is a much better deal than most of the small cars I looked at. I got mine with all the extras for under $15000. The power in underrated on this car. I was plesantly suprised at how much power it does have. I'm 6'1'' and can set comfortably in both the frount and back seat. Most important, my wife thinks it's cute and she loves it....read morehide

- I bought it for economy and that's what I got. It gets up to 39 highway
- Steering is too sensitive. You really got to keep your eyes on the road at higher speed.
Ibought the base no frills model and added my own cruise control, power locks with remote, power hatch release and a brighter hatch courtesy light for $400.00 from the internet.
I didn't see the need in power windows since I can reach across pass seat to pass door crank.
I kill the engine taking off from a stop quite a lot. It serves the purpose of being an economy car. I refer to it as being my expensive to purchase coke can on wheels....read morehide

- fuel economy, insurance cost, low maintence
i do a lot of city driving and the gas mileage is always 32-34MPG. If the alignment is off the mileage drops to about 29MPG, that's still pretty good. i got 23,000 miles on my yaris and so far all maintance i've done is an oil change. I used to own an 03 camry, when i got the yaris my insurance dropped big time. overall this car saves money and i cant complain. For $16000 and a $27 gas fill up it doesn't get any better....read morehide

- 45mpg manual, looks great, handles like a dream
- can't fit 3 of em in my garage
besides the great gas mileage, it's quiet, smooth running and almost maintenance free. change the oil and keep your windows clean. That's it. And your siblings will all want one.

- high seats, good for parking & driving in city, excellent highway mileage, looks, storage
- minimal safety features in base model
I bought my manual Yaris liftback a year ago and have put a little over 7k miles on it. My ride to work is 8m each way through 20 stoplight intersections. I get about 30mpg on that. But on the highway, I easily get 40mpg. All in all, it costs me an average of $2/day to drive. It would cost me $7.15/day and an extra hour to take the available public transportation option. I love that it's so easy for me to manage my daily *stuff* - backpack, purse, ipod, ipod cable, pens, notebooks, tissues, sports bars, chapstick, mints, sunglasses, water bottles, coffee, boots, gym bag, groceries, etc. as there's a built-in place for everything. With the seat down, there's enough room for my bike on weekends. I've only had one weird thing happen - a cardboard coupon flew out from the back of one of the glove compartments into the heating fan & made this flipping sound. It cost me about $36 to get it out. Fortunately there are 2 other compartments, so I have options. I've never gotten stuck in the snow since the car is so light it kind of rides over the surface like a boat. And in a marathon 3.5 hour snowy gridlocked commute recently while other people were having to get out to clear the ice off their windshield wipers, the Yaris wipers never iced over. Couldn't be more pleased with it. One more thing - I bumped into the back of another car during a traffic jam and there was no mark on either car - the low impact front really worked I guess. Otherwise, I try to drive as safely as I can keeping in mind that there are no side airbags. But knock on wood I've never been in a serious accident and usually only drive well-known routes. I hope I can keep driving this car until we run out of oil. Or find some better fuel or whatever....read morehide

- Fun to drive, good fuel efficiency, love the storage options in the dash and the back
- Features absent, not great in snow, weak acceleration after 30 mph, hatch won't open from inside
More on the pros: I have a blast driving this car, it accelerates nicely off the line at stoplights and it handles nicely while weaving through traffic.
My MPG fluctuates based on whether I use the heat or AC, but the worst my car does is about 30. I typically pull down a solid 300 miles per tank of gas.
I've questioned the cup holder placements too, but I use the drivers' side every day - and the heater doesn't melt the ice in my soda. The triple glove boxes are fantastic - I have easy access to my gloves and my sunglasses. And the trunk space is great, the list of things I've fit in there is stunning. This car helped me move!
More on the cons: I couldn't get any features when I bought the car in July '07, and dealers tell me Toyota isn't building the Yaris with what they put on the web site for my area. I had to kiss goodbye my dreams of keyless entry, power anything, fancy blue ambient lighting, 60/40 fold-down seats, fancy rims - among many other 'options.' Sure, I didn't want a $20,000 hatchback, but that cool blue glow looks real neat.
Compared to my Yaris, my old '97 Sentra was a snowmobile. Hills and line starts in the snow are a mess, and I lose traction easily anywhere else. My car is not fun to drive in the snow - at all.
Maybe it's just me, but I'd like better acceleration after 30 mph. I beat everyone off the line at the light, but they pass me 200 feet later. That's no fun.
And what gives with no hatch release? I can't count how many times I've muttered profanities when I realized I had to turn off the car and exit the vehicle so I could access the trunk....read morehide
