I Purchased my Yaris about a month ago from Car Max. To date, I have had no issues with the car. I am averaging about 32 mpg during reqular travel to work, around town and the occasional trip to NPR or Orlando. I haven't usd it for a long road trip yet but expect the milage to increase without all of the stop and go traffic.
I love not having to fill up every week and the car handles well.
I enjoy the color, sort of a smoke grey and the car looks good.
One problem I see is that the seats are designed for very thin people; so if you have a big bottom or are wide, it may be a bit uncomfortable and take a few weeks to get used to. Another thing that took some getting used to is when you first start the car, there is a light that reads "cool" that comes on, on the dash. At first I was concerned, but it goes off within a few seconds and I realize it is justletting me know the engine is still cold. This could b be invaluable in the colder states.
There is a bad blind spot at the spots where the door closes on both sides, which can make checking traffic a bit hairy, but as long as you realize it is there, it is good. Get up and go is sometimes a bit sluggish, but it is a small car and I expect that. With that being said though, it can sometimes get hairy pulling out into fast traffic. Sound system is adequate.
Overall: I love my Yaris and am enjoying this car.
Love my Yaris!
