Pleasently surprised

2008 Toyota Yaris rartist - Virginia Beach, VA 12/30/2009

I bought the car for my son to drive to college, to replace a domestic of failing "health". I was pleasantly surprised with the car; I expected a gas sipping miniature car that was cramped and couldn't get out of its own way. While it looks little on the outside, the interior space is very good including room for adults in back (a surprise) with the hatchback model. The car steps off the line with surprising vigor for something with that low rated HP, making for a very pleasant drive. The center gauge cluster takes some getting used to, added that the Yaris kinda lacks a sense of speed. It handles nicely, and is a joy to park in cramped spaces; the thing just about goes sideways. Parking decks are a breeze. The breaks feel good, tho I haven't hoofed a panic stop yet to try the (optional!!!) ABS. My son puts gas in it about once a week, and drives it quite a bit. It has the automatic transmission which an intuitive shifter vs a dull witted slush box (another surprise). It seems that Toyota has turned a number of potential weaknesses into strengths. About the only sore spot I can pick is the lack of remote power door locks; using the key and constantly checking to make sure all the doors & hatch are locked is a pain.

Great Commuter Vehicle

2008 Toyota Yaris Wahidh - West Hartford, CT 02/28/2012

Purchased a 2008 a couple months ago (January 2012) and I have had no problems since. Great fuel economy. EPA says 29city/35hwy but I average 34-38mpg combined. That's because I drive conservatively though. Easy parking, not fantastic acceleration but it is an economy car. Hoping for it to last me as long as possible, and since it's Toyota, I am confident it will.

Great Car

2008 Toyota Yaris - - Baltimore, MD 02/16/2008

There are so many positives in this car that outweigh the negatives. Great overall layout of the car and the MP3 jack is amazing. Car runs and drives extremely smooth. I can't get over the gas milage in this thing, it's unbelieveable. The only negatives are the no power windows or locks which is kind of a hassel, but overall a great value and a very easy car to maintain and drive. Looking forward to having this car for years to come.
