Nothing wrong to date.

General Comments:

The Yaris hatchback is a small car, but once you sit inside it, it has got lot of leg space. One feels very comfortable, even if you travel for 300 KM in one go.

The four speed automatic transmission works very fine. The downshifting of gears is very nice.

AC is pity good. Let’s see how it works in the merciless heat of UAE during summers.

Will recommend this car to those who are looking for reliability, fuel economy and less hassle, especially when you are looking for a parking, which is a big problem in my region nowadays.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Further to my first review, I have now driven my Toyota Yaris 15000 KM. It is moving like a new car with no problem at all.

The reason for writing this review is that I am surprised at the AC performance also. Like I had mentioned in my first review that I will update you guys specially when the summer is on in United Arab Emirates. The temperature sometimes touches 50C. Even in this extreme temperature the car is cooling very well.

I will keep you updated as and when I touch 50000 KM mark. I use this as my second car, but don't feel like missing it for a single day of driving it.
