Yes, just what it says. Bought my 2007 Hatchback Automatic in RED back in Sept.06 and got 4800 on it now. The flashing "maint. required" tells me I need to change the oil (between 4500-5k). From reading these post's, I guess I'm NOT going to put in a FRAM Oil Filter. I guess I CAN use synthetic Oil. I also think I'm going to let Toyota know I'm changing over to Synthetic Oil (for records) and there after. I DID NOT see any mention though (unless I missed it somewhere else?) on the viscosities that are being used for Oil/s. Should I go with what it says in the Manual? Also, just for info. I've seen on this forum on gas mlge., I do about 400 miles a week, drive all hiway and cruise about 70-75 miles per hour and I'm getting about 38 mpg. Better than 10 with my truck!! Hey, anyone know where to pick up a pair of rain guards for the front windows? I know they got them for the sedans but not the Hatchback ..yet.....unless they do and I can't find them.

I have a 2001 ECHO coupe, manual, and I'm looking at a base model used 4 door Yaris Sedan, auto, to replace it. It is coming from a private seller and only has 11000 miles on it. I test drove it and the only "negative" thing I noticed was that the engine was really putting some heat out when I checked under the hood after the drive. Is this normal for this car? When I tested my ECHO after similar driving, the engine is no where near this warm (and I believe the engine is very similar). Could it be the difference between the manual and auto transmission?

#57 of 80 2007 yaris:engine light and gas cap issues

My name is Jesse Brenneman. I JUST bought a Yaris yesterday, and am amazed by the comfort, the drive, and the looks.
However, this morning, my key sort of stuck in the ignition position. I mean, it didn't automatically kick back to where it normally does. So I went to move it back myself, and the engine turned itself off before I could touch it. I was thinking maybe it sensed something was weird and shut itself off. So I waited a minute and tried again. This time it started nicely, but the "check engine" light came on as soon as it did. Weird.
Next, I put gas in it, and the gas cap wouldn't click when I tightened it. I tried like 10 times, but got cold so gave up.
I was wondering if anyone else had experienced similar problems.

That is weird. Please let us know the diagnosis after you have it checked out.
On the subject of engine lights and gas, here is another weird one. When I picked up my new liftback last week the salesman made the comment that they have had problems with engine lights coming on for customers who use BP brand gasoline. He recommended using any other brand and kind of endorsed Speedway brand. Has anyone else ever heard such a thing?

Like you, I just recently bought a Yaris (I've had it for about 2 weeks now)...
It drives great; however, earlier today, the "Check Engine" light came on for some unknown reason. I'm not sure what the deal is -- considering that I drive my car (on average) like 5 miles a day at most (back-and-forth to school).
My last car was an absolute dud of a Toyota Camry and was CONSTANTLY breaking-down with little, fluke problems. I'm really hoping that this whole "check engine" thing isn't a sign of things to come...

While driving this morning, my Yaris was suddenly filled with smell of gas. I had to open the windows. I looked at the gas indicator. The last bar was blinking. I saw two bars like five minutes ago. Is this normal?
