Toyota falsely advertised the mpg. They say it should make 30/38 and I'm getting 20 mpg!!! This is so far off - it's inexcusable. I made the same mileage with the car I sold - my 1971 datsun which I had owned for over 45 years! Pick-up not as good and the shifting gears not as smooth as my old car. Turning radius is lousy. Windshield wiper controls in a stupid place - constantly hitting them which is really bad for the windshield. There are a few other little things that I don't like. What I do like is having air conditioning and I do enjoy the power steering. I had one other big concern which is when I had to make an extreme sudden stop, the brakes made an awful noise. I had my mechanic check it out and they claim it's normal!
This car lacks alot for being a entry level car but it is entry level. The suspension goes around smooth corners fairly easily but add a few poot holes and you're in for a rough ride. In my opinion the 08-09 yaris needs a tighter suspension. I'm 6'6" and I need a car that has both head room and leg room. When I first saw the toyota yaris I didnt think much of it but after driving it for a little while it rides smooth under 70, doesnt take rough corners too well but for a new couple looking to take a road trip or two this car has deffiently got what you need. The back seat though small in size is comfurtable, the front seats are comfurtable before 4.5 hours on the road. Gas millage isnt an issue but when the 10 gallon tank hits a quarter gas milage seems to go down a little. The stock Toyota Yaris tops out at 115 but add a few accessories and youll find out this car isnt ment for speed. As far as value goes, for the price its good car.
Great on gas. Very roomy for a small car.
