All I wanted was the air and maybe a radio, I wanted the cheapest car they had and they offered this one. I didn't ask for the power package but this was what we got. We wanted the 5 speed for fuel savings and power. I am not sure why this was offered to us because we only wanted a bare bones car with air and radio. This one was their cheapest Yaris so we took it. I had no idea how much this package was worth because we never shopped it.
I think we got lucky!

I think that your fuel savings are going to neglible with the MT (1.6 mpg) according to www.fueleconomy.gov, but you probably do get a little more power with the MT and you probably did save about $800 on the front end, and it will probably cost less in repairs over the life of the car if you aren't too hard on clutches.

My experience with a manual versus automatic, in spite of what the EPA says, is that the highway is all about rpms so many autos actually do as good or better on the highway these days. In the city, the manual is worth 2-4 mpg because of the ability to better anticipate situations and shift to the proper gear. The control and smoothness of the manual leaves any automatic in the dust especially on a small car with just adequate power.

www.performancetoyota.net has a 48 hour sale on this Saturday and Sunday where they will sell any Yaris in stock for $1,000 off MSRP. What a difference a year makes. I thought I got a steal last weekend at $489 off MSRP at Wolfchasetoyota.com. Happens to me every time.
#486 of 661 2007 Yaris Hatchback

I have yet to close a deal as I am still pitting dealers against each other. I will use at least five dealers and let them fight it out as to who wants take my money. So far I have an offer (second dealer and better offer) to purchase the car for $13,100.00 out the door for the PQ package with fog lamps and manual trans. and 15" steel wheels. I have found the(a)supplier of the cruise control systems that the dealers use for $250.00. Will find out this monday how much the dealer wants to install it. Probably do it myself.
Do any current owners have any comments about the car? Like reliability, comfort on long drives etc.
#487 of 661 When will 5 door Yaris hatch be avbl?
Apr 23, 2007 (6:55 am)
Last night while on NYS Thruway (I-90) at Pembroke rest area, I saw a parked Yaris 5 door hatch. Okay, the "5th" door is the trunk opening. It was orange in color (it was at night, streetlight illuminated), and clearly it was a hatch. It had Ontario plates on it. I liked it better than the 3 door hatch. Anyone out there know if and when this version is coming to the States?

Probably never... The Scion xA is basically the 4-door Yaris hatch.

Someone that I work with told me that Toyota has a $1,000 discount for repeat buyers. Has anyone heard anything about this? Sounds a little fishy to me.

This weekend www.performancetoyota.net is advertising all in stock Yaris's at $1,500 off MSRP. Kind of a reverse auction I guess.
#491 of 661 getting an actual quote is hard work. I need a shower
May 02, 2007 (6:08 pm)
Today after an hour and a half sitting in a stuffy showroom, I finally got a quote. The quote is for a 07 LB auto with conv. and Sd airbags $13 510. Guy said it was invoice, but after hearing all that double talk and how these cars have "no mark up," I don't know what to believe.
