Toyota Yaris is well recommended because of it reliability and performance among others.

Good - reliable, starts first time in all weather, no rattles or annoying faults like I have had with other new cars. Easy to park, large touch screen with reverse camera and light steering makes it a doddle in tight spaces. Can seat four 6' 4" adults in comfort plus dual level boot (option) makes loading easy. Rubber mats well fitted and easily removed for cleaning. Flat floor in rear (no transmission tunnel in way) leaves room for even big footed passengers. Really comfortable front seats, no back ache after motorway driving for 3-4 hours. Feels like it will last a long time. Sports mode makes for improved handling and very willing acceleration but still not as good as a 2009 Fiesta I had. Fuel consumption is a lot better than my auto fiesta which was enough to make me cry. I am heavy footed as I live near fast roads, but still average 40 mpg. I really like the lever inside cabin that unlocks the fuel cap. No having to fiddle with a key with cold hands. Bad rubbish headlights, really poor on unlit roads. I drove through the New Forest on a dark night, no moonlight, and had to use front fog lights to see animals in road. Nearly ran over a pig.

Great all around vehicle for all!

Performance is great! Only thing is I have been conferences about is all the constant recalls this car has. But Toyota is really great at sending these notices out first thing and being consistent on reminders to bring in your car to fix the recall issue at hand. So far recalls were for airbag, seat track assembly as well as seat belts. This car is perfect size! Small and convenient to get around in. Good on miles and gas! Haven't had any major issues-as long as you treat it right and pay attention to maintenance the car will take good care of you for years to come! I've had the car for almost ten years and no problems at all! Trunk space is pretty spacious-a good size to fit all your necessities and then some! Feel this car is very reliable inside and out. Comfortable as a car can be-interior has held up really well over the years and no major downfalls in that department!

Basic Toyota Yaris well designed commuter vehicle.

My car is a basic standard shift economy car. The car is inexpensive to maintain and to drive. When I purchased the car it had about 83,000 mile on it and now has about 98,000 miles. During that time it has not required any repairs and only regularly scheduled maintenance. The interior of the car is functional, but not fancy. It is well laid out in that all controls are exactly where you would expect to find them. The front area is roomy; the rear is cramped. The trunk is roomy and the rear seats fold down to increase room for cargo. Handling is good and predictable. While not powerful, the engine/five speed transmission work well together. The car does not do well in snow. Overall gas mileage has been about 35 mpg for a combination of city and highway driving. The best use for the car is as a one or two person commuter vehicle.
