I've had the GLS since the day first it was available. It has proven to be a most reliable and economical choice. I work full time as a GP and spend a fair proportion of my time in a car doing home visits to my some of patients (quite a few as we have the largest elderly home-bound population in the UK outside Brighton).
I choose daily between the Yaris, a Lexus 200 IS and a 1950 Riley RMA. The Yaris usually wins. I have to be honest, a BMW M5 is actually calling me next - a complete contrast I know - but I would still nevertheless fully endourse a Yaris to any punter after a superbly reliable, parkable, nippy little motor.
This car is quite slow but easy to drive. There is not enough space in general. It's not ideal if you have small children and need to adjust children's car seats.
A very good small car. Ours has just reached two years old and covered 30,000 miles. My wife loves it and drives it pretty hard for a 1.0 litre - it's lively and has never missed a beat. The Yaris is not perfect - we had a gearchange mechanism replaced under warranty at 7500 miles to cure a baulky change (apparently a fault on a few cars). Our dealer did the job in a couple of hours and lent us a new Yaris demonstrator to compare, a totally painless experience. The paintwork is a little soft, judging by a couple of stonechips on the front. The car is adequate for space, I'm 6 foot 1 and can drive it in comfort. Would I buy another? Definitely.
A fantastic five-door town car and a very good investment. I cannot rate this car high enough. It's a 5 star PLUS PLUS
