You are in the Toyota Yaris
What is this discussion about?
Toyota Yaris, Hatchback
#2616 of 2743 2009 5 door hatchback
Dec 27, 2008 (8:13 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.
#2617 of 2743 Yaris 09 inside light

Doesn't this thing have a auto dome light that comes on when you open the doors?
I have 2 lights on the upper part of the front dome, but they seem to only be able to turn on manual by pushing them. I can see no way to make a light turn on when you open the door.
There's no switch on the lights either, they only turn on by pushing them.
This is weird, every car I ever seen has a dome light that turns on when you open the door.

Not sure what model you have, but on my 2007 Sedan, you just switch the setting on the dome light to door and it comes on when the door is open just like every other car I have owned.

Its the 5 dr hatchback 2009 (see my post just above here)
hmmmm well I don't see any "setting" on the 2 dome lights. Its just the 2 lights that you can press to turn on.
This is crazy, every car even my old VW beetle had lights that turn on when you open the door.

And the owner's manual doesn't shed any light on this? (sorry, couldn't resist)
Have you checked the switch that controls dash illumination? On many cars it also controls the dome light on/off.

yup read the manual before posting, smirks
shows a switch to use to set it to door, but there's NO switch on my dome lights.
As for the dash illum, it ONLY controls the speedo intensity light.
No sweat, I'm gona go to the dealer Monday and raise hell with them about it.

Just a thought... the dealer didn't design the car and didn't write the owner's manual. They are not responsible for causing this problem. So rather than "raise hell" with them, maybe a simple, good-natured, polite question would be in order? You may have a long relationship with the dealer's service department; I've found that these folks tend to be more helpful and responsive when I treat them as I would like to be treated.

Ok so wait. This:
is the dome light on an '08 Yaris with a little switch on it. This is different and completely separate from the two reader lights up by the rear-view mirror (the ones you push in). Yours is different? Weird...

HY man, well all is OK,
smirks the picture was some help. However the problem was kinda my own fault, rof, I guess I wasn't able to bend my head back far enough with the head rest to even notice that "OTHER" light with that switch hahaha, man I feel kinda silly, but better than having gone to the dealer and finding out lol
Now all is well with this little run about, I like it even though I bought it for the wife to use around local driving. I like it more than my 05 corolla LE lol even with the smaller 1.5. It handles fine and has all the pickup it needs. I also got what I think was a pretty good deal
This is the end of this light deal , smirks..........
#2625 of 2743 did any encontered gear shift problem on automatic...
Jan 03, 2009 (7:09 am)
I have a 2008 Toyota Yaris 5 door automatic. What i have experienced is the gear shifting take little while of drive after 60 when you start driving cold car (no matter summer winter if you start car and run engine couple of minutes)
So after the speed reaches above 60 and goes all the way upto 80-85 i feel like it needs gear and is not shifting however after few minutes of drive it starts shifting gear at 60.
Any one encountered this issue or if this is an issue really. I spoke to one guy at toyota dealership he sent me back saying the car runs on O/D for sometime.
