Summary:

Nippy, funky looking hatch that stands out

Faults:

Rear Silencer went at 20K Miles.

Door Seals came loose within a year.

Passenger door locked & wouldn't open a day after purchasing the vehicle.

General Comments:

The car has good performance for a 1.3. Its lacking in torque so to get the most out of it the engine requires to be revved.

Handling is good, if you push too hard the front wheels will safely under steer. Ride is not the best around town, but out on the open road its fine.

Cabin Quality could be better as some materials feel cheap. Well built though.

Cabin is very big for such a small car & can accommodate up to four adults comfortably.

A great car for city driving

I have not had any problems in over two years, nor any faults requiring work under the warranty.

General Comments:

The car is ideal for city driving.

It is easy to park.

The 1.3 engine is very responsive.

The car handles well.

The seats are comfortable with a good driving position.

It has the interior space of a larger car.

The boot space is not generous, but can be expanded by moving the back seat forward.

Summary:

A little belter!

Faults:

The central locking system occasionally misbehaves, sometimes only one door unlocks on entry.

The remarkable refinement of the car is a spoilt a little by an annoying trim rattle from the doors.

General Comments:

A cracking little town car that actually cuts the mustard out on the open road. My wife and I took our Yaris down to Barcelona last year - 2500 miles in a week. It coped amazingly well and returned 50 mpg.

It is surprisingly quick for a 1.0 litre, especially pulling away from junctions/roundabouts.

Summary:

I thought it was great until I realized it had rust - a 9 month old car!

Faults:

There are signs of rust above one rear wheel and also on the bonnet where the paint has been chipped from everyday wear and tear.

It looks like the car only got one coat of paint.

General Comments:

I am interested to know is this a general problem with this car.

I own a Toyota Yaris 1.3 SR and I've had the same problem with the paint work.

I've owned the car for 4 months from new and there are about 15 chips.

Please contact me because I am in the process of complaining to Toyota.

I have the same problem with a 1.0 GS in metallic black. Even the slightest scratch shows up the WHITE primer underneath. And I paid extra for metallic...
