The Yaris is a relatively comfortable car, which is excellent for town driving. Whilst this version only has a 1 litre ebgine, it is quite responsive, and is perfectly happy on the Motorway.
The best thing about this car is the reliability - in the four years we've had the car, absolutely nothing has gone wrong (I'm frantically touching wood and crossing fingers now!), and the only maintenance we've had is the usual tyres and wiper blades etc.
Excellent - wouldn't hesitate ot own a Toyota again.
I have owned my 2001 "51" plate Yaris for nearly two years and it is the love of my driving life! My Mum is on her second Yaris, and it was her satisfaction with the model that made me choose one. It is a BIG car in a small space, very practical and extremely straightforward to drive. I love the fact that it squeezes in the smallest parking spaces, but doesn't feel out of place on the outside lane of the M6! I use it for a mixture of town, motorway and country driving and it performs beautifully every time. Also the engine sometimes sounds a bit high pitched, but only compared to larger and more fuel hungry cars. Fuel economy (45mpg average over the time I have had it) storage space, reliability, comfort and fun factor all 10/10. My friend recently borrowed it, and said how refreshing and delightful it was compared to his quite powerful Golf Estate. He particularly liked the crystal clear digital speedo display, which is one of my favourite features too.
To start with, I come from Malta and here in Malta we import Japanese used cars which would only be about three years old.
We bought this about three years ago, and when we bought it the engine was still brand new - since it had 35,000km on the clock.
I have no complaints about this car - my version is a 1.0 VVT-i 2000 version, and it's called Vitz instead of Yaris, however it is the same compared with European version.
This car is very reliable - it has powerful brakes, excellent handling, is comfortable, and full-of extras - air-conditioning, a radio-CD/tape player, all-round electric windows, central locking, electric mirrors, four-speed automatic gearbox, and electronic display.
I have nothing to complain about - Well done, Toyota!
Well, what can i say, this is my baby and i love it!
Had it from new for 6 years now and i can't bear to part with it. I would like a new car but i just can't seem to find one that comes anywhere near my Yairs.
It's cheap to run, i do alot of town driving and only put £25pm of petrol in. It's never had any faults, nothing's gone wrong, i've had no repairs and has been utterly reliable for the last 6 years. Insurance and tax are cheap and its easy and nippy to drive.
I have no complaints about this car only that i can't let it go!
Maybe i'll just have to buy a new one!?
