Toyota Yaris, Hatchback
#2530 of 2747 16,000 miles and perfect
Jan 20, 2008 (3:49 pm)
16,000 miles and perfect I purchased my 5 speed Yaris Hatchback in Sept, 2006. I drive about 12,000 miles per yr. I have had zero problems in the first 16 months. The best 2007 car for high mpg and high quality. My winter average mpg is 44, and my summer average mpg is 50, for an average of 47 mpg year round in Pennsylvania.
Yes, I am a hypermiler, and I do know how to get the most out of my Yaris. Great car by Toyota! Someday would love to see it sold as a PHEV.

Well, wife and I bought an '08 Yaris Sedan, automatic and loaded with almost everything you can get. We love it. She drives about 20'ish miles a day round trip in heavy stop and go traffic and has been holding steady at 30mpg. We've got a roadtrip coming up in a couple of months, so we're looking forward to seeing what the Yaris will do on the open road. My auto, 4dr Echo made the trip last time at 40+mpg. We'll see what happens.
#2532 of 2747 Yaris T-boned by Taurus

This guy walked away from being t-boned by a Taurus doing 60km/hr. First thing I noticed is there were no side air-bags. I'm pretty sure if it was a Suburban, the guy would be dead by now. So why are we still selling Suburbans to soccer moms with cell phones?

Why are we still selling vehicles that size to anyone who isn't a farmer or run a construction business?

No doubt. Heck. I had to take a special safety course and riding test in order to get my motorcycle license. So why can't we require Hummer and Suburban drivers take a safety course too. Oh, I forget. The almighty dollar for the auto industry.

A national magazine is doing a story about the new popularity of small cars and looking for people who downsized from a larger car to a Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, Nissan Versa, Mini Cooper, or Chevy Aveo -- someone who never envisioned themselves driving a small car, but felt forced to go small by gas prices that have shot above $3 a gallon. Or maybe they went small to show they are doing their part to save the planet, or stop terrorism, or maybe all three. Please respond no later than Feb. 6 to Chintan Talati at ctalatiedmunds.com.
#2537 of 2747 I've brought this subject up before...

in one of the forums, but thought I'd ask again since no one had any data. Has anyone had the unfortunate event of being in an accident involving the rear of the Yaris being hit? My interest is for the 2 door hatch. I really like this little car, but am concerned about backseat passengers. Anyone? Thanks.

yakima makes a clip on roof rack for the 4 door, but not the hatchback. I'm going to be doing a hard install of Yakima Landing Feet 7 on my Yaris next week. I'll let ya know if it works well. I had a bear of a time finding a schematic of the roof supports...

Not yet, but I'm planning on attempting to install Yakima Landing Feet 7 onto my Yaris at the end of the month. I'll try to remember to come back and let ya know how it went. The install looks very simple with the LF7's cuz you don't have to pull off the headliner. The hardest part for me was finding a reliable source for the roof schematic, so I could tell exactly where the roof supports were...
