Purchased As New
We bought Yaris new in 2008. We have 133,500 miles on the car and have never had one issue mechanically or otherwise. We have even done alot of daily in town driving. No issues whatever. We got 113,000 miles on our origional set of tires. Hard to believe but the truth. I still cannot believe it. The ride and handling is excellent. The best car for the money you could ever buy as far as my wife and I are concerned. We will buy another one if this one ever wears out on us. This is an awesome little machine. Ours is a four door with power everything. Oh and we have the origional brakes still on the car. We have had them checked twice and they keep telling us that we have plenty of brake pad left. We get our brakes checked at Christian Brother Auto Store in Texas....read morehide

Bought my Yaris three weeks ago after trading in my pig. I spend under $30 per week instead of $75 my F-150 cost me. I can easily find parking in city. Sharp car! More room inside then it looks except for trunk, but the back seats fold down which helps. Radio is OK, but wish it had better quality sound....read morehide

it is a good city car only, achieving average mileage and runs on regular fuel. the interior can be done in a much better way. engine needs to be worked hard since it is very underpowered when compared to cars in the same class. A/T is dimwitted and may drive you crazy at low speeds ex. when just accelerating from 5-10 miles, you ease of then accelerate again it would not kick down and would keep lugging until you reach the power band in that gear. at high speed above 80 mph, the gearbox may not kick down or would deselect the current gear and stay in neutral for a while. i think its a power train protection feature but it feels like its not working properly. at 85 mph the engine revs high at 2200-3100 rpm which tires the engine. all of these problems can be avoided with a M/T car though an M/T version of this car idles a bit high and would still need to stay at power band for proper acceleration and speed. I wish i bought an M/T or if their was a stronger engine option or if the gearbox was a cvt. do not go for the A/T. brakes on the car are great but the handbrake seems to need a tuneup because it lacks the feel. the A/C is great and cools down the car quickly. it is a great car for the price and try to opt for full option on the car if you want to buy it though it would approach the base price of better cars but this is justified if you are a toyota fan. change the oil to fully synthetic after 2000 miles to save. hatch back is the better choice if it is for indie use ( no family)...read morehide
