2007 Toyota Yaris T1 3 door with A/C 1.1
Class and economy in one small price
You wouldn't believe me, but it's the most reliable car ever. Before this, I made use of my fiance's car from a different manufacturer for about 3 years, and in the first six months I spent more than R5000 on the car. I have my car for 6 months now, and never spend anything on it except for my services, so this is really low maintenance.
Very economic car, and would very easily recommend it to anyone who has to travel to work every day.
I travel 20km every day, and only use R200 of petrol per week. My brother recently bought himself one as well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's economical, but far from classy...
I agree, the car is economical, comfortable, reliable, but far from classy. That is not surprising as the Toyota company is generally stingy with equipping their entry level cars with classy features.
The Yaris is a superb car. Generally bullet-proof, and a bit more interesting than the comparable Nissan Micra or Opel Corsa.
I made the mistake to buy the Yaris for the same reason: reliability. I came to the conclusion that I would rather be paying for some repairs and have what's called a real car, than drive a badly designed econobox. Don't get me wrong, I drove the old Toyota Echo and was very pleased with it. Despite the looks, the Echo was a perfectly designed vehicle overall. But the Yaris, yuck.
