No car is perfect but this model comes close.
As I said no car is perfect... no matter what you pay for it.
Mine cost me $27,400 - extras included for the price were metallic paint, window tint, rust, interior, exterior protection (which was a rip off at $2500 but hey gotta have a learning curb!). Never be pushed into buying those useless extras as I was but as I said it's a learning curb when the "customer satisfaction manager" pushes you into a small room to force you buy products that aren't needed nor do they work aka the ming mole struck again!
The car is the only Japanese built...car in it's class; the interior is the largest in it's class with the largest glass area for excellent vision which is aided by great exterior mirrors. The single blade windscreen wiper clears a huge area of the windshield and is quiet and efficient. Interior seats are very large and supportive for the class, seat fabric is of high quality as is the great feel of the thick D-Shaped sports steering wheel that gives more interior room. Sound system is excellent as is climate control system on any given day. Suspension is perfectly tuned as are the brakes so that even in torrential rain at 110km/h the car feels super solid and safe... love the easy to use cruise control stalk (borrowed from Lexus).
YRX, GPS navigation, SD card System do in pay extra for.
I have a late 2013,Toyota Yaris Hatchback YRX, and I fully agree with “No car is perfect but this model come close”, 24th Aug, 2014. The GPS, navigation, SD card system is not worth the money. The GPS has a problem were the school crossing cannot not be disabled, yet there is a menu to allow you to disable them. You get up to 8 crossing in one area and some where there is not a school crossing at all. Toyota knows of the problem but cannot fix it. I am sure if Toyota kept telling the manufacture (of the GPS) about the problem, it would get fixe...d. Is this too hard for Toyota to do? Toyota also told me that they update the GPS every 18mths, it is quite clear that the GPS problems have not been fixed. Toyota even put a new 2015 version into my car to test it and it is still has the same problem. The GPS is also slow to re-calculate and at time it is so determent to make you do a u-turn before re-calculating. It is expensive to update it over $300.00 and then you will still get the same nasty unfixed problem with it. The YRX is a great car because of the climate control, automatic headlights, economical, very comfortable and roomy but the GPS is a waste of money. DO NOT PAY EXTRA FOR THE GPS, SD NAVIGATION CARD SYSTEM.
