Paint started peeling
Car used for commuting to work. Mainly parked under cover.
Car used approx 5 days per week
Serviced as per schedule
No mechanical issues
Issue with paint peeling at approx 6 years old. Peeling all along bottom of back window and spots of peeling paint on roof and bonnet. It is the clear coat that is peeling. Can see this has occurred with many yaris cars by looking at other complaints online.

Wonderful little bus
Bought a 2006 4 door hatchback for $2000 a year ago and have been over the moon with how it's been. Reliable, zippy enough to get around without any fuss, fantastic fuel economy regardless of whether it's city or highway driving. Surprisingly spacious for a small car, i have fit bikes in the boot with the seats down. I like the digital dash as well, makes it feel more modern than it is. Initially I bought it as a stop gap but have no intention of selling it any time soon.

Economical and easy to drive
I love this car.For a micro it is roomy and well powered.It has been reliable.Only fault was an oxygen sensor at 110,000 k which made it stop revving when it had run for about 1/2 hr.Easy fix.No other mech probs in 140'000 ks

Such a reliable car
I just use this car for running around the city. It is easy to maintain. Cost effective. I like that seats can go down so I can slide surprisingly large items in! It's small and easy to park. Love the reverse camera. I get it serviced regularly and no issues other than a high clutch point, which is a preference thing.

Keeps its value and not easy to get a second hand
Surprisingly the model keeps its high resale value. Probably it is the most expensive in its class. What you get is legendary Toyotas' reliability. The good thing is that parts and maintenance are on the cheaper end.

Best car I've ever driven
During many years I have driven all kinds of cars from VW, Honda, Mitsubishi, Toyota Corolla, plus more. My Yaris is the most reliable, zippy and comfortable car I have ever driven and I go everywhere in it. Because it is small it is easy to park and its power and fuel efficiency are great. There is only one thing I don't like about my car and that is its name 'Yaris". It sounds like an exotic animal.

Fantastic and reliable car
Fantastic and reliable car. Extremely good on petrol, trouble free, easy to park and pleasant to drive in the city. I bought it for my wife and I take it now and then as it's so much fun to drive.

Powerful, Cheap to Own and All the comforts.
I use my 2011 Yaris daily "Bought it quite a few years ago", and it still zips past cars on steeply inclined highways at around 110 k's whilst using 98 Octane, and thats even when I have three passengers and the back hatch full of stuff..
The trick is to keep the old girl well maintained, and at around 200 bucks a year that's excellent, Oh and I would highly recommend you use 95 Octane as I get a crap ton of more k's that way, and when youre about to do a highway run fill er up with 98 Octane, That way you have more power and amazing fuel Economy, don't forget to give the old girl a boot now and then on acceleration to clear her up and stop it from getting lazy..

Small and fuel efficient
I recently purchased a Toyota Yaris for a few reasons. Fuel efficient, with the rate of fuel prices I think this small car was a smart move. It’s small and easy to park and the stereo sounds great.

Love my little Yaris
I bought this car brand new and its still going strong. never had any issues with her and would recommend buying a Yaris to anyone looking for a small car

Faithful servant.Old friend.
My philosophy, zero to five years ,buy any brand,they will all be reliable in that time frame,five to ten years the little Yaris starts pushing its nose in front,Ten years on the Yaris is a clear winner,the mechanics of this little car have remained unchanged for years ,for a very good reason.

Looks lovely, is roomy, but to drive it is awful
Brand new car in 2019, it’s a manual but I’ve driven manual cars all my life and I’m in my late 30’s. I can honestly say this is the worst car I have ever driven (and I hire a different car each year when I go to the UK, so I’ve driven lots of cars in my time). It’s not just that it has a small engine, as the first cars I drove were like this. It may be that it’s badly tuned, but I raised my concerns with Toyota at my first service and it made no difference. The car stalls A LOT. Getting the right amount of gas is an art form which I’ve mastere...d, but still stall the car once a week. You have to put your foot flat to the floor if starting on even a slight incline. The cruise control doesn’t keep the car at the same speed...it varies still by about 8km/h which is relevant given that we’re stung for speeding more than 3km/h over the limit. But other than how it drives it’s pretty to look at and spacious inside...feels like a big car within. And when you fold those back seats down, you sure will impress everyone with the amount of stuff you can fit in it. It’s basically a van! It’s a cheap car. You get what you pay for I guess.

Perfect little car
My car is for personal use. Just around my suburb normally. I have 2 car seats in the back. I've had 1 service so far and it was good customer service. The people at Mornington Toyota were great to deal with.
The only issue with the car is that is a bit loud but doesn't bother me that much. Get about 400km out of a tank. When the fuel is good I pay about $40-$45 to full it

Questions & Answers
I have bought a 2018 Yaris and when I attach my iPhone through the Bluetooth I can’t hear phone ring or anyone talking.
I have been in settings and volume is on.
Has anyone else had this problem
Looking at a new Yaris, 2019 onwards , do any of the models come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense pack or do you have to add it on?
