Well I would blame myself except for one fact, they had already taken the money BEFORE they gave me the car so this is not my fault at all - I have bought quite a few used cars and know when to walk away - both my wife and I test drove the car and both agreed for a 2007 Yaris it was in very good condition - what came out afterwards was that this car had a been a daily fleet rental and they never disclosed that at time of sale.
This is illegal in most places - now we are in dispute trying to get our money back but it looks hopeless - that's why I will never buy Toyota and to be fair it is not just them, it seems to be everywhere now.
If you put your trust and faith in people that sell cars they will screw you if they can.

This may be a dealership but this is not Toyota. You should report the dealership to the DA's office and IMMEDIATELY call the newspaper in your town ACTION REPORTER...and state your case on TV where it will make the Local news in your area possibly the national news. You will have your money returned to you because this will put whoever you bought the car from clearly out of busness...SPEAK UP..IF YOU DON'T NO ONE ELSE WILL....Remember NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING "FIRST"...and you did not say that you were having problems with your Yaris? You merely stated it wss not disclosed to you! CALL THE ACTION REPORTER...and go over to the station ...NOW

I'm assuming that would be 12999 plus docs+tax+title?
Sounds like a very good deal to me and I wouldn't mind the same (looking for a hatch though).

Toyota is # 1 and Honda is # 2. Your story is the reason why. Toyota has always bent over backwards to please and thats why they are # 1.
Here is my story for you: I bought a Lexus SC 430, the most expensive car Lexus makes and I had gone over to the dealship dressed in clothes from bringing our boat back from Ft Lauderdale. In other words I was not dripping in diamonds. I was treated horribly and I caled Japan direct to speak with the President. He called me back twice to make certain that I was satisfied and the salesman got fired. Just because you can drip in diamonds doesn't mean you have to....Keep the Yaris its lots of fun...I like it better than any car I have ever owned.
I permanently installed a Nuvi 5000 GPS in my right hand glove box with a bsck up camera. That was the only one that Best Buy could permanently install.
My brother then bought the Honda Fit...It doesn't have as many storage compartments and the gas mileage is less ....enjoy your Toyota..You are #1

I use the compartment behind the steering wheel to keep my solar glasses...even though I have the ones that convert from regular glasses to sun glasses...the solars make it better and are good for nght vision....
Love my Yaris...better than Lexus....and better than Mustang that I own...its just perfect....the dealership chuckles at me as they can't believe that I love my Yaris over the other autos I have owed....I paid seventeen something it was a special order with automatic everything ...door locks, tinted windows, aluminum wheels with nitrate or something like that in them that they do not lose "air" backup camera, gps installed...bought the exhaust tip and the decals for the doors etc...love my Yaris....

Scott0217, thanks for sharing your buying experience and price. I went to dealerships in Florida yesterday, and asked two of them to match your price, however, both of them turned me down. The cars I looked at did not have the fog lamps, the keyless entry, and Carpet floor mats, yet, they still wanted to sell the car to me at 13500+++ (dealer fee, tax, registration). Did you get any rebates from the dealership?
Still waiting for your longer version of buying experience...

Hi everyone, just wanted to share my car buying with you. I bought a meteorite metallic 5 door liftback, automatic, model 1462A on Thursday July 23, and a pearl black one on July 25, 2009, at Pearson Toyota in Newport News, Va. My saleslady was Brenda Robertson. Here is what I got on my yarii.
base = 13,305.
all weather guard=110.
remote keyless entry=230.
power package with steel wheels=1580.
carpeted floor mats=150.
msrp on sticker=16,345.00
agreed price: 14,762.00
protective exterior/interior coating:500.00
gap insurance: 550.00
price financed thru toyota=17,427.03 at 2.9 % on both cars.
research shows average paid prices for this model and trim fall like this:
actual dealer cost: 15,687
average paid: 16,035
sticker price: 16,434
I hope I did pretty good.
