#2607 of 2747 07 Yaris Problems
Nov 19, 2008 (9:18 pm)
I've had my '07 Yaris, 5 spd. for 15 months and 33,000 miles. I do like the car, but now seem to be having problems. The idling seems too low and seems to idle rough at times, especially when it's colder outside, but dealer can't find any problem. Starter sticks in "on" position occassionally, but dealer can't find any problem. Also, had an oil leak recently repaired. I guess it was transmission oil. They had the car for 4 days and repaired the leak, but now the clutch all of a sudden feels weird and not like it used to.
Has anyone else experienced any of these problems with the Yaris. I've always had good luck with toyota cars and trucks in the past, but I'm worried about this car.

My Yaris has always idled a little rough when the engine cold light is still on.
I have owned an 07 5speed for about 23 months and 35,000 miles and have had no issues with the starter, leaks, low idle, or clutch. No problems of any kind to date.

I have had my Yaris since July 2006. I have over 61,000 miles on it. Knock on wood, I have had no problems. I couldn't be more pleased with the car. I was shocked to see the 09 Yaris gets worse gas mileage at 29/36. What's up with that?

I know the EPA changed the way they figure the numbers and they've been revised down a bit for most vehicles. I'm not sure if they've changed the test to take ethanol into account either, but you can read about the negative effects of ethanol blends on mileage in The Inconvenient Truth About Ethanol

Nothing has really changed. The engine and transmission are still the same.
It is just a different way of calculating MPG by the EPA.
#2612 of 2747 Hi Mileage 07 Yaris problems
Dec 10, 2008 (5:08 pm)
My company Car is a 2007 Yaris. I have driven over 75,000 miles in this car mostly in the midwest. All of my dummy lights went on recently. I went to a Toyota dealer to get the codes and find out what the problem was. Well It is a ESB , something to do with the fuel delivery system. Fuel filler, Charcoal canister ( about 900.00 dollars worth) There is a Technical Service Bulletin Directly related to theses codes- authorizing repair. I went to the dealer in Wisconsin that our company purchased other cars ,trucks and a Lexus. They contacted Toyota and the factory is unwilling to cover or even partially participate in this ridiculously expensive repair. Rather surprising that a very dependable manufacture, and large dealer is not interested in happy customers. Are there any other drivers out there driving Hi Mileage Yaris vehicles that can relate?

Unfortunately, those kind of parts are not covered under the 8 year, 80,000 mile emissions warranty. But one option is to check salvage yards for the pricey parts like the charcoal canister. See this article for example:
#2614 of 2747 Body Paint Problem
Dec 23, 2008 (1:38 pm)
The paint on my daughter's 2007 red Yaris has completely dis integrated in large sections of the front bumper and hood of the vehicle. It is actually down to the primer. The car is 2 years old and still under warranty and I am about to take it back to the dealer. Has anyone had a similar problem with the paint ? I can understand chips in the paint from normal driving but this is unbelievable.It is the whole front of the car. You can actually peel the paint off with your hand.

Man, that's crazy! Red used to be the worst color for Toyotas back in the 80's models for that reason, but I haven't seen that happen in a long time. Definitely take it back to the dealer - sounds like they skipped a step.
#2616 of 2747 2009 5 door hatchback
Dec 27, 2008 (7:13 pm)
OK just picked up this 09 5 door tonight, I drove it a few times in the last 3 days along with the scion Xd. I decided the Yaris was the better deal for the wife as a small commuter.I decided the old Chrysler T&C had given her enough headache's. Also there was no 1000K rebate on the scion and it was almost 2K more. for what a 1.8 instead of the 1.5?, this 1.5 seems to be just fine by the way. Besides they don't budge at all on the scion sticker.
This thing has all the options I guess they could stick on, I didn't need most, but so be it, It has, FE,CP,CL,KE,PQ,CF, and this DK, some useless owners portfolio.
I ended up after a day's worth of back and forth at 14,588. +tax, lic and processing.
Processing fee was $459.00, tax was 481.41 , some lic fee 39.50, title fee 10.00, and some silly 10.00 called "online systems filing fee"?.
So after all that it came to: $15,587.91 out the door. (incl the 1000 rebate)
I only managed to get them to throw in the cruse and the floor mats, as the sticker said 16,345.000 they went to $15,988.00, than took the 1000K rebate off, to 14,988, at that time I said i don't need cruse and not gona pay 150.00 for mats, they took 250 off for the cruse and 150 for the mats to end up at the $14,588
( before all the usual BS)
I gave em 3K and still owe 12,587.91 to pay off next week. I guess I made about as good a deal as anyone else here in southern VA at Priority Toyota.
So now I have this and a 05 Corolla LE.
