"I bought my Yaris in 2006. It has been a great little car and gets amazing mileage. The trunk space in the back is amazingly large and can fit a lot. I go on a lot of camping trips and the extra space helps. I do love the ipod plug in the car but is hard to find sometimes since it is located on the passengers side. This car does have two blind spots that make it difficult when on the highway. The frame of the car in the back is rather large and when trying to turn and quickly look in your blind spot it can be very difficult looking around that area. Other than that it is a great little car."
"I bought 2 yaris, on for me and one for my wife, to save on gas. I got the 5 speed all power option, and she got the automatic all power option. We love our cars, havent had any problems. My wife drives conservatively...not me. I drive my 5 speed like a race car and it performs VERY well, even though I treat it like my red headed step child on the road, I still get 32-35 mpg. When I do drive conservatively, specially in highway, I have gotten well over 45 mpg. My friends make fun of me, but I am laughing all the way to the bank. Although I think after all taxes and fees the car cost as much as a bottom of the line civic, which is a bit bigger, I still believe it was a very good deal. I tinted the windows on both vehicles and they look even cooler!!!"
"I went to the toyota dealer looking for a 2dr standard Tacoma because I'm not really a small guy (230 x 5'10"). I saw the Yaris they had displayed there and thought it looked 'cute' but that Id never even begin to fit in such a tiny car. Just for the heck of it , I sat in it. WOW!. It is almost CAVERNOUS in there !. I looked at the price and the mpg and decided right then and there that THIS was my car. I drive 43 miles either way (86 total) every day and this car has just about paid for itself compared to my old vehicle. The little thing is a ROCKET too!. 'Zippy' is the word I'd use. It is like driving a go-cart to work only it goes MUCH faster. I can park just about anywhere too.
I cannot recommend it enough!.

"I love the yaris...is compact yet stylish and what really got my attention was the gas efficiency, it really is economical in terms of gas consumption which was the biggest selling point. I would recommend it to all my friends and family."
"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!!"
