    My car

    This is the only Car I've ever said.."Yes I'll have it". And I wasn't disapointed. It's a joy to drive & the build quality is great. In fact I wouldn't have a new model Yaris, because the plastics in the newer car is not good. Toyota haven't heard of the phrase "If it's not broke, don't fix it". I wish I'd got either the Diesel or the T Sport.

    My car

    Mmm..my second car, my first being a brand new '05 Golf, so you can see where this will end up.

    The engine is too small for where I live, in the middle of the countryside, so overtaking can a bit risky but around town this car is in it's element, a VERY livly vvti engine, makes a lot fuss about nothing though, and have to keep my right foot planted on motorways, but that's more me than the car really.

    Light steering with a great turning circle, light clutch. Generally an easy car to drive, with good all round visabilty making it a sinch to park. The digital display isn't as distracting as I thought it would be. Boot not bad, a good shape, trim could look better quality, i'm sure it will stand the test of time, but just a sea of grey plastic...

    Overall a nice car...but nothing in it to get excited about, although it handles much better than I thought it would!! plus fuel economy is good averaging 40-45 mpg depending on who driving it me or my dad. But a sound relaible little run a round.

    My car

    Had the misfortune to have this as a courtesy car ahen mine was of rthe road. This car is shocking to small,noisy,cheap feeling and very un-comfartable. The only saving grace was i was handing it back the garage Never again (i hope).

    My car

    I have only one complaint about the yaris and that is that my daughter recently had a baby and i am unable to put the car seat in the back on my yaris due to the positioning on 2 plastic pieces near the seatbelts that do not allow proper positioning of the base of the car seat. As the pushchair was £500 including car seat i am reluctant to purchase a car seat from Toyoya that will have to be changed in a few months time when there is a perfectly good one from mamas and papas.
