Summary:

Great little car

Faults:

I had to have the rear tires centered, probably because of the bad roads that are here.

Nothing else.

General Comments:

This car is very easy to drive, very smooth clutch and steering.

It is also very comfortable, no problem with longer distances.

The car is very spacious, even on the rear seats!

The performance is very good - it is not a pocket rocket, but fast enough for everyday. Though, I won a Ford Focus 1.6 16v in a drag, so the car can go well for it's HP.

My only complain is the noise that car makes over 3500-4000 RPM. But I can live with that, I just turn the radio louder.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Very good little car

Faults:

Nothing went wrong.

General Comments:

Excellent city car with absolutely the best one liter engine. Handling is very good, the cabin is roomy and seats are quite comfortable.

The only objection I have for this basic model of Yaris with 1.0 engine is, that it's very noisy at motorway speeds (120 km/h and more), as compared to other Yaris models, especially D4D version. Most of the noise comes from the little engine, as there is almost no sound proofing between the engine compartment and the passenger cabin.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
