    My car

    Took the little car on holiday up the west coast of Scotland did a lot of miles and happy to say if ran like a dream. Sat-nav now fixed was very happy with garage customers service (Arnold Clark Toyota ,Paisley). As I read other reviews a lot of people are not happy with their cars all I can say to people about to buy a Yaris is not to be put off by what you read picking a car is a personal thing and people do make mistakes when buying car I no 15 cars over the space of about 16 years all had good and bad points .

    My car

    I was so impressed with my friend's that I bought one. After driving an X Trail I thought it would be slow: not a bit of it, torquey and very responsive. Done 9000 miles now with no problems, squeaks or anything else. Very comfy on long journeys: I love this car. Dashboard plastics could be nicer and it should have variable speed on the intermittent wipe. The easy fold flat seats are brilliant.

    My car

    I have read some of these reviews with great interest, and feel though most are accurate some are overly critical of this very popular model. Working in the motor industry (not for toyota) gives me access to many different makes and models and i have to say that the Yaris rates above the most reliable and trouble free cars you can buy. For those who want perfection you should be aspiring to a handbuilt car maybe and looking to spend 100K+, at the end of the day mass produced cars may have squeaks and rattles, they may even have a juddery clutch from time to time...you very much get what you pay for. I have experienced water pump failures from fiestas, ECU failures from Corsas and major engine failures from Polos. I have never experienced or known of any such problem from a Yaris. I can almost 100% guarantee that although you may get some teething problems or the odd squeak and rattle, mechanicaly this car will reign supreme when others fail around it.

    My car

    My son bought his Yaris new and it is now 2 months old. He is having problems with the rear washer - when you put it on, water comes inside the car. Toyota dealer in Swindon has fixed it once, but the repair failed after a week - the loan car another Yaris had the same problem.

    The dealer response is poor, they do not get back to you when they say they will and the attitute seems to be one of "so what?" I would not recommend this car, and would definately not purchase a Toyota with the lack of customer care that they display.
