    My car

    I have owned my 1 litre Yaris 5 door for just under a year now. I am a mobile hairdresser and use this car everyday. I love this car and its never let me down touch wood! It uses hardly any petrol I fill it right up and it costs £35. Which seems to last 2 weeks. Its got plenty of room and goes well and will do 80 mph comfortably. The only thing I would say which is not to good is it struggles up hill if you have a passanger/s but its got a very small engine for a big car. The build quality is spot on, I have a sunroof and its never leeked and a/c which I think every car should have. Its not dead cheap on insurance but its not that bad either.

    My car

    Put quite simply, you can buy one of these and still expect it to be trouble free 5 years later. 1.3 is fast and frugal. Nippy around town and comfortable on a long journey. Can seat 5 tall adults. Rear seat slides and reclines-useful for increasing boot space.

    Whats the point in looking elsewhere? just buy one and enjoy it!

    My car

    Covered 33000 miles in three years and still on original tyres. Trip computer shows 50mpg and its been utterly reliable. Had a few rattles which the dealer fixed.It's the best car I have owned in forty years of driving and still gives me pleasure to drive after all this time.

    I have a 4 year old Yaris. Recently the gearbox bearings have failed. Toyota have quoted £1220 to repair! The car has only done 28,000 miles!
