"I bought a 2008 red Toyota Yaris hatchback in May of 2007. From the minute I saw it on commercials, I loved the unusual shape and the vibrant color. When I went in to test drive it, I really enjoyed the way it handled. I thought it excelerated, not GREAT, but admirably enough, certainly fast enough for me. It has a bit of a tough time getting up hills, but the overdrive is a handy fix, though I find I don't really need to use it unless it's a steep incline. I live in Oregon where it rains quite a bit, and it handles well in the rain. I enjoy the MP3 outlet- it's handy for your ipod. The only thing I dislike is that it did not come standard with automatic locks and windows. But, overall, it was great for anyone looking for a small car, or someone who wants a dependable, lasting car for a fairly low amount. (It's also SUPER easy to parallel park!)"
"I think this is a great car, I love my little 2008 hathcback! It's awesome on gas, and I love that it's so small that I can easily park anywhere. The only complaint is that it is a little bit hard for it to get on hills. But if you gain speed before the hill, it'll get there just fine. Just have to get used to the car. I would definately recommend Yaris, it's a great car to drive in a city!!"
