2009 Toyota Yarisoperaman - Chicago, Illinois08/28/2011
I've always loved Toyota, and I owned a 1985 Celica, a 1986 Corolla, a 2002 Echo, a 2003 Corolla, and now a 2009 Yaris, which I bought new in April of 2009. I don't drive much (the car only has 5800 miles on it) and use the car for short trips around the neighborhood and occasional longer trips to the suburbs. It's peppy on the highway (I've had it up to 80 m.p.h.), good on the city streets, and it's a good ride.
I folded down the back seats which enables me to use the whole area for cargo, groceries, cartons of soda, etc, and I love the fact that I can just open the back and throw my stuff into that very ample storage area.
I would say without hesitation that this 2009 Yaris (silver/gray) is the most functional car for my particular needs. It's fun to drive, easy on gas, and it's really cute.
I intend on keeping this car for a long, long time.
2012 Toyota YarisDeeDee Zweibel - W. Los Angeles, CA08/22/2016
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!
Perfect Car for a short person
2012 Toyota YarisMerry Prater - Columbus, OH02/08/2016
This car has a fantastic turn radius. I can zip in anywhere I want. I am a shorter person and feel like I actually fit in it without it swallowing me up. It is very short and I can actually see out all the windows and back glass without a problem. It is wonderful.
