Benefits of a 2008 Toyota Yaris!

I love this car! I bought a new Yaris in 2008. I have had it for the past 10 years and have driven it all over the place. It is super cute and is great! It has get up and go! It is very roomy and can not only seat 4 passengers but can haul things around because I am able to put the seats down. I have a business and need to haul a booth, camping gear, what I am selling, equipment, friends and more. I have even slept in it for car camping instead of setting up a tent when I knew my weekend camping would be rainy. People have always been amazed at how much I can fit into this car. As a driver this is a very comfortable car and the adjustable seats are great on long trips. The gas mileage is amazing! When I am going long distance I can get a good 36 miles to the gallon, maybe more depending on where I am driving. With how much I have driven and the distance I go sometimes this is very important. I have literally put 291,000 miles on this car and it is finally on it is last leg. That is a lot of life in one little car and I am grateful for how well it has done over the years. I am considering one as this one is moving toward the end of its life. I would highly recommend a Toyota Yaris.

Review of my compact Toyota not a gas guzzler.

I bought it used with 39k miles. It purrs even after having it since 2011. Smooth ride, easy handling. For a compact car it is roomy inside can seat 5 people, three in the back and 2 in the front. It has served me well. The gas mileage is great I get anywhere 32 to 35 mpg on highway. In city driving it is 29 to 31 mpg. Like the fold down rear seats which allows me to carry bigger loads. It has a nice counsel for putting things into in the front between driver and passenger. The stereo has this feature that when you slow down and stop the volume reduces, nice feature. Front disc brakes, rear drum brakes. Mechanic I use likes how easy it is to work on. I have replaced the water pump, also bought recently four new tires. Plus replaced the front bumper due to a raccoon hitting me on the road at night. My only critique is with the windshield wipers original factory wear out very fast. Last time I replaced them the gentleman at the auto parts store recommended more expensive ones which work very well. Would recommend this car to anyone who is looking to save money on gas.

My Toyota Cute and compact. I just love the look of my car period.

I purchased my 2008 Toyota Yaris over a year and half ago and I have not had any problems with my car. It is a small 4 door Sedan with power locks on windows and doors. I have traveled to my home town of NC several times and the gas mileage is awesome. My car runs very smooth, you can barely hear the engine running. I have had no mechanical issues as of yet except for a dead battery due to weather damage. This car has been very dependable for a newly used car. It's very comfortable with cloth seats that are easy to keep clean. One of the features I love about the car is the alert signal when you don't fasten your seat belt on. When you are in a rush to get to work, it is a great reminder to keep you from getting a Ticket. I have heard that Toyota's were the best brand of car to buy but I didn't really know until I purchased one for myself. I agree, this car has been great to me..
