I've driven my Yaris for two years now and when the time comes it's going to be hard to part with it! As small cars come this one is hard to beat - it's super reliable, it has a good sized boot, costs a pittance to maintain and is extremely nippy on its 1 litre engine. However, I've had trouble with the transmission/gearbox and find it hard to handle sometimes in bad weather - especially when there's a strong wind! I've also noticed quite a bit of rust on the body and the wheel trims, although that could be due to the oil refinery in the town. However, the car's overall features do make up for its bad points and the dashboard controls (including my holographic display) are the easiest controls I've ever used. A car I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone - in fact, my other half went out and bought himself one too!
There is very little to say about our Yaris, except that it's the best car we've ever owned.
Of course it's not fast or plush, but it is reliable, practical, frugal and hard-wearing.
With a young family I'd not swap it for anything when driving around town.
This car is ideal for town driving. It's nippy, fun, reliable, and has superb fuel economy. It's small to park, big enough to carry three Border Collies, a passenger and a trolley load of shopping. I also have a 1.8-litre five-door Avensis for long hauls.
When was the last time you saw a Toyota on the back of a breakdown lorry? All the 'Can't-drive-'em-but-must-own-'em' expensive 4x4 drivers live round here; the local supermarket car park is as near to 'off road' as these vehicle's ever get. Result? High pollution causing misery to asthmatics.
Anyway, I've driven cars from 19th-century veterans, pre-war vintage, and post-war classics to boring brand new vehicles. For really fun driving, I prefer pre-war. I own and drive a 1933 Rolls. So I feel it's fair to say I know a bit about different makes of cars. Don't be fooled by their small size. A Yaris is great to own and huge value for money. I adore mine!
This is an xcellent car, but the company has an appalling customer relations department. It took two-and-a-half years to address a warranty claim. The car seat covers (in Tanica grey) were of an extremely poor quality and showed premature wear after only a few months.
I had to get them independently inspected before they would replace them and threaten them with legal action.
