Good reliable car. Driving dynamics average
We bought this car a few years ago and has served us well. The only disappointment is the poor driving position and handling. The high drivers seat feels quite unnatural
Purchased in September 2017 for $4,999.00.

Love this car!
Such a great reliable car, very affordable as well! Even though there isn’t a lot of space on the back seat, the front seats are so spacious and comfortable.
There are also so many drink holders - I especially love the one right next to the steering wheel for my coffee; and there are three glove boxes, very is very handy!
I'm glad we are getting rid of it!
Our personal experience was terrible!! It was our son's first car and all he had was troubles. It stalled and would start shaking and dying while standing on red lights or similar. Couple times it died in the middle of a busy roundabout and all I could see that one day might end up tragically becasue the car kept dying whenever he would take his foot of the gas. We visited Toyota service numerous times but they kept saying it was nothing. All they did was raising the motor turns so it doesn't keep turning off but still without putting it in neutral it would start shaking and turn off eventually. So, we had some car...very disappointed but happy to say goodbye yaris.
This is perfect
Excellent small car. Great for travelling. Nice soundsystem. the Yaris was pretty well equipped with standard air-conditioning, an MP-compatible stereo with a CD player, remote central locking, power mirrors and window. the Yaris was pretty well equipped with standard air-conditioning, an MP-compatible stereo with a CD player, remote central locking, power mirrors and window.

Cheap and reliable
Toyotas are always a good car to buy for their reliability however there are some things to note with the Yaris.
Very light car so it will tend to over accelerate at the start
Seats are very average - no support, just one large piece of foam
Low maintenance costs for sure
i had my car running all good and all of a sudden i lost power steering on this car can some one help me out what could have gone wrong, i would appreciate if some one had a slimier problem or if i can get a expert advice of what to fix
Economical and reliable card
I've had it for over 5 years and it has been an excellent car. It is also my first.
Pro - reliable, cheap and economical to run and parts are cheap, light and plenty of space for the sedan, easier to drive
Cons- power is on the weaker side, easy to get dents
Great little car
The Yaris is economical, drivable, nimble, surprisingly comfortable, relatively quiet and reliable
The Yaris is not a performance vehicle in terms of torque, power or extreme handling. However, it can tow light loads.
The cup holders, seat folding and a range of other internal aspects are actually better than current model corollas. However, the 2006 model, as expected has a very old style stereo system. It is a cheaper car second hand than a corolla of the same vintage by a significant margin so depreciation was and perhaps is not good...for Yaris. That said, a point worth noting is that the all expensive 100K service is not expensive as it uses a timing chain not a belt (eg Corolla) and thus the chain will last the life of the car.. Overall, buy for the right price and enjoy trouble free if underwhelming performance.
never a disappointment after driving for more than 8 years
I'm currently considering getting a new car so I though might as well do a review for my dear Yaris who served me well in the past years, taking me to work everyday, taking me on road trips with friends, moving me from one city to another, moving flat packed furnitures from Ikea back home... I have lots of good memory with this little car, which is my first car. It looks cute for a female driver, and I love the funky digital dashboard. Its compact size means it's easy to snuggle into a small parking spot. It does not have a big engine (meaning ...you‘ll find it work very hard to help you climb over a sloppy hill), but it's economic for my purpose of use, a little petrol goes a long way. It has lots of room inside, and the back seats can be put down to make even more room. It's time for me to say farewell due to the need of a bigger car for my growing family. I'll miss our memories together.
2005 3-door YRS
I bought this as my first car two years ago with just over 90k on the clock and it has been a fantastic little car. So easy to drive and cheap to maintain. It's been from Sydney to the Gold Coast and back a few times and was perfect. Everyone who drives it loves it. Definitely getting another Yaris when I'm ready for a new car.
great little car!
I bought this 2006 manual yaris 3 door hatch in queensland with 230000km
For only $1000 unregistered. The only thing wrong was the roof was faded.
Got a roadworthy certificate and nothing was wrong with it. So registered same day.
I drove it everywhere in brisbane for a couple of months. Then decided to drive it all the way from brisbane to perth. Went perfect. Drove up to 160km per hour. Passed trucks with ease. Really tough little car. Easy to drive. Fit alot of luggage so plenty of space. Now iam in perth and six months later still no problems.
Love my yaris
terrible - will lose $3000 off resale due to paint peeliing, which is a well documented world wide p
YRS 3 door Auto. Neat to park. Terrible to drive.
Very disapointed with around town fuel effiency- reason why we bought it. Took back to Toyota for there help (they were great) but they couldnt get it down around town either 6.1 on open rd and 7.8 around town- from memory did this in 2008 when we bought.
Very hard to keep to level speed. (wonder if this is only a complaint with the autos???) accelarator has no resistance just flops so you are constantly watching (along with all in car thanks to central dash) the speedo. For me it takes the...
Great little car.
I purchased my Yaris Yrx (1.5L, 5 door manual), brand new late in 2007. Which makes it about 3 years that I've been driving the car. My previous cars were a Mazda3 (2004 model) and a Ford Tesla (1984 model).
The car is responsive (0-100km in... no idea) and is fairly stable for a small car on the road. You do feel the occasional bumps (not more then the Mazda3) but for a car of this size it's still smooth. Parking the Yaris is a joy, the places you can fit it into is surprising. It is a bit noisy on the inside especially on highw...
Having owned a Toyota Corolla Verso in the UK for 3 years, we decided to stay with Toyota when we moved here. At the time, we got the Yaris without on the road costs, since we were also purchasing a RAV4 at the same time (we've since replaced that with another RAV4), so i've always considered the car good value for money.
The Yaris has done 90,000kms in almost 7 years, including several interstate trips (without much needed cruise control). Back in 2006/2007, the only other small/mini sedans on the market were Korean (Kia Rio and Holden Ba...rina Sedan). Also, this was at a time when Korean cars were still [censored word removed] (not anymore) so given the alternative, choosing a Japanese built car was a no brainer. We also have one of the new TK Barina Sedans. I'm about to replace the tyres for a 2nd time and the shock absorbers for the first time, so from a wear and tear point of view, the parts last for a farely ordinary amount of time. Over the last year, i've done a considerable amount of long distance driving and found that the lower back support is lacking and causes back aches after several hours. It's survived several pothole filled gravel tracks without any problems. Ground clearance is good for a sedan (compared to the current Barina Sedan). I love the centre dash and can put the steering wheel in a comfortable position without blocking the gauges compared to other cars i've driven over the years. Fuel economy varies from 6 - 8.5L/100km. Also good is the full size spare, which is essential for interstate/freeway driving. The things i've always had a problem with is the lack of a 5th gear (auto), which leads to higher RPM when cruising along at 100+ kph and also the lack of torque in the low ends of the gears (not surprising given the engine size) and the torque is massively reduced when the aircon is on. Having said that, I find the gearbox/transmission/accelerator much more responsive to what my foot is doing compared to the Barina Sedan. It knows when to change gear and what gear to change to, whereas the Barina sedan gets confused (to many gears doesn't help) and takes way too long to change down a gear when you need to accelerate suddenly.
Awesome car, still going strong
I purchased a 2007 yr manual hatch in 2012 with 160000kms for $6000 as a temporary car as I couldn't afford to run my commodore anymore, now 3 years later its still going strong with 210000kms on the clock & I love it!!!! Very economical getting approx 600kms/40L fuel, heaps of storage compartments, very safe with abs brake assist driver & passenger airbags, all the cool stuff power windows electric power steering drive by wire mp3 compatible cd player full digital display. Excellent runaround car or first car, highly recommended!!!!
I purchased this car in 2007, 3 door, 1.5 ltr manual has not had any problems since Been every where, well almost.. Dubbo, Canberra and Agnes Water Queensland with no dramas. It's reliable as it gets.All i do is change oil and that's it. It's a fantastic car i would recommend it to any one looking for a small hatch back.
Reliable, suffecient engine power.
Boot is on the small side compare to others.
I have a used 2006 Yaris I purchased earlier this year with 60,000km. I've done 6000 km since and not had a single issue. Only point I dislike is the clutch operation feels a bit unpredictable and its easy to stall taking off from the lights if not paying attention. Fuel economy is remarkable averaging 600-700km per tank of city driving. Seats and interior are comfortable and roomy for a small car. I like the digital speedo centre dash, and for a tiny 1.3 engine it does well at 100kph with just enough left to overtake. Usually i fling cars ever...y 6 months but i think ill hold onto this one a while yet. Perfect for my uni/work lifestyle. Roomy, steering is great, dash, requires little maintanence, cheap on fuel, reliable. Clutch operation/ low torque prone to shudders/ stall on takeoff from a stop.
2007 Toyota Yaris 4 door sedan purchased New
This is my first Toyota,I bought Toyota on the recommendation of 6 different mechanics. I am delighted with my car,it has not missed a beat. I never miss a service. It really feels like a safe car in every type of weather.....it is comfortable,plenty of room for passengers,great stereo. Bluetooth hands free was easy to connect to my mobile,I did it myself. The stereo stops when the phone rings and the voice comes through the drivers speaker only. Works fantastic,great sound.Mostly I love the Toyota reliability ,it is a wonderful car. I have YRX...Sedan. It has spoilers,fog lights,alloy wheels and a 6 CD stacker.....,that is the difference from the YRS. YRS sedan does not have extras,( 1 CD stacker) and I must have my 6 CD stacker so I don't drive off the road changing CD's. Toyota name, reliability, great mileage, small turn circle. Speedo panel is in middle of dashboard,not in front of driver,I still don't like that...no rear wiper
Yes great car but...... Shame on you Toyota
My company's Yaris is a 2006 with around 178,000 on the clock. Apparently it has suffered a MAF (Mass Air Flow) malfunction. I am told by Maddils Toyota of Noosaville Quensland that the replacement cost of the MAF unit will be around $450.00 and that it will take about 1.5 hours (labour time) to replace it.
The reference is :
Penny's Flowers, Cooroy Qld Job Number : TNCUN93842
Well I guess that's OK considering that the vehicle is used for business.
However when Maddills told me that it will take 3 weeks to source the defective (reall...y small) part... I was told that "it isn't avalable in Australia and will take 3 weeks to source", I was kind of thrown!! Also, when I checked on Google there was an enormous amount of suppliers (perhaps unreliable) for this item from what I considerer to be a reasonable price of $210-00 or below.
My Wife's YRX 2007 Yaris
As the title suggest, this is a review for my wife's vehicle. I own a performance car BUT I hope this review is factual/helpful for you who are seriously considering this vehicle.
I normally reflect on the reviews of others to add to the discussion. But with the large amount of response I will just post my 5 most noteworthy PROS and CONS.
Looks - but the catch is you need the YRX model.
Space (leg/head) be that in the front/back seats.
No issues after 110,000km.
Fuel costs and can run on E10, 91 or 95 - each noticeable differences. ...
