Such a great car
Such a great car. Never had an issue in the 9 years of having the car. Zippy, easy to park, fits in most spots. Still roomy enough to fit a pram and baby stuff in the back. Baby capsule also. Toyota is very reliable and service centre is very communicative.
Great little car!
I bought my 2010 Toyota Yaris 3 Door Hatchback from second hand seller few months ago. I love driving this little beauty and has never let me down since I bought it. Got great fuel economy with an engine capacity of 1.3 litre. For a small car it's got good power! It runs great uphill and takes off quickly. Good audio system with bluetooth and the audio is clear as day. However one of the flaws of my car is because the colour is blue, the paint coat is peeling (probably from the sun) on the roof and little bit on the bonnet but have heard this i...s a common problem for blue Yaris. Another flaw of my car is the passenger door will not work with the central locking remote (have to manually lock it from outside/inside) so unsure if this was a recall. Overall apart from the 2 flaws I mentioned, I would definitely recommend this car. Can never go wrong with Toyota! Update: I got my door fixed
2013 Toyota Yaris
Really strong for a 1.3L. Great for parking in the city as it is a tiny car. A lot of space for shopping and a shoe wardrobe if you need. Very quiet too. Good legroom if you want to have a nap on a lunch break. Reliable car and really good fuel efficiency.
Perfect first car
Bought this as my first car to learn manual in and honestly such a good choice, steering is lovely and is a joy to drive, extremely fuel efficient and small size is easy to park. Have had absolutely no issues with the car at all. Although small feels surprisingly roomy inside.
Satisfied customer, spacious and easy to park. Good mileage so easy on saving. Not a luxury car but first car to start with, helpful in each way. The boot is small but over all a great car for family.Even when driving on a high speed their is no bubbling and its a smooth drive.
Good small affordable car
Got my yaris sedan secondhand back in uni, and it had been performing really well and very reliable. Small car so it was really easy to monuve around （especially as a new driver). It has relatively big space as well for a single. The running cost is low in general but Toyota service is a bit expensive. Overall a good first car before I move on to ssh more expensive
Great for city driving
Really happy with this car. It's the perfect size to whiz around the city and parking is a breeze. Petrol consumption is pretty economical as well and I only need to fill my tank once every 1.5 - 2 weeks and I drive nearly an hour a day return to commute to work.
I'm not sure how much room would be available in the back for car seat(s) or a pram to fit in the boot but just for myself to drive around with my husband or my friends its perfect. I really like that the boot has a hidden compartment for safety but also for extra space.
The on...ly negative, which I don't know if its just my car or all Yaris but when I start the car the front panel makes this weird vibrating noise from the stereo. Once the car is warmed up and moving it goes away but it can get annoying at first. I had the Toyota dealership check it out during my 3 years service period but they couldn't find any faults. But it's such a minor complaint I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Good budget car
I love this car. It’s small and cosy. Suitable for a small family. It’s inexpensive side on maintenance, fuel efficiency makes it a cost saver.
I have travelled far with it without issues and have always followed Toyota guidelines making it more reliable even in the long run.
I would recommend it for families who want to save cost and yet enjoy the luxury of a car.
Remember, You won’t have issues in parking!!
Awesome Car for a Family
Very good in performance and handling. No noise at all while driving. Runs very smoothly. Interior is far better than other models of same brand or other brands. Very spacious from inside. A perfect sedan for a family. Very reliable and easy to operate. Automatic transmission is available which makes your driving much easier. Available in many colors but black looks AWESOME. Low maintenance compared to other cars and models.
Oh what a feeling...
What I like about this car:
Overall good car, doesn't feel small on the inside.
Reverse parking camera
Good fuel economy
Easy to park especially in CBD where the parking spaces are scarce and tight.
Not too much, probably only the small boot space (the hatchback).
But that's to be expected with a small car.
Overall great value!!!
Oh What A Feeling!!!
First car I took for a test drive & loved it!! Easy to handle has the best turning circle I have ever had on a car. The speedo is in the middle of the dash unlike other models but did not take me long to adapt to this concept. Petrol consumption is minimal. 18 months down the track & not a regret.
Great functional car
This has been a great little car. Very economical to drive averaging about 6L per 100 klm when using 95 Octane petrol. Performance is also better using this type of petrol. Surprisingly it's quite roomy inside and back seat fits even my son easily - he's over 6 foot. Mechanically it has been a very sound car and would happily recommend it.
Perfect small car
I bought this car for my wife. She loves it. This is on of the best small car. Very cheap to run. Cheap servicing and very reliable. Never had any problem with this car. Drives smoothly with nice air con. Small hatchback car but spacious inside. Good family car.
Perfect small car
I bought this car last month and I can't live without this lovely car. Even though it's a 1.3 Liter engine, it's enough for daily use and I drive it 40 kilometers per day. Car space is enough for daily shopping and even for moving. I use this car for commute and picking up my girlfriend.
Price Perfect! But Underpower
This sedan is very perfect for its price. High Cost-Effective!
The space for diver and passengers is bigger than other similar products.
There is one problem is that the car is always underpowered. It seems a bit weak to climb slope.
Anyway, the car is perfect for city driving. It is suitable as a working and shopping vehicle!
Awesome small car for wifey
No one needs an introduction to Toyota they just keep on running and running..you have to sell it to get a new car.
Usually Toyotas are boring to drive but 2012 Yaris YRS has a lot to offer
Bluetooth speaker phone
We got the car service hand and have driven it for few days now..i will soon pass it onto my wife for driving around
Milage is good 6.9/100kms
Decent car that can be depended upon first and foremost. Not particularly powerful, but after 70km's it still drives the same as day 1. Interior is nothing special but does the job, very good boot space for a small bottom of the range model. Airbag fault was an inconvenience but nothing more.
Super reliable, comfortable, plenty of room for the size of the car. It also has great visibility and good fuel economy. Feels like it will go forever. Auto changes smoothly and it does everything asked of it. Will be looking at a new yaris in 3 years. Overall no complaints with this car! Also note its done 150k. Well built car
Toyota is known to be reliable for a reason.
I have been driving a second hand MY2008 Yaris for 5 years and it is a really well build car. I only had to change the car battery once and the tires as it was getting worn out after 6 years since it was manufacture. Being a 7 years old car, the support is still great and there was 2 times when we sent the car for servicing at our local Toyota dealer and their system was able to pick up a recall for the car, nothing too serious, and get the part replace without any hassle. The car is still running smoothly and we will be trading it for a bigger...Toyota RAV4. At the end of the day, my family have own Toyotas and they have been very reliable. They may not be the nicest car or have the most features compared to their competitors nowadays, but it is a brand that I have come to trust. Therefore they deserve my 5 star for being reliable for the 25 years my other family members have been using Toyota as well.
Great small car. No useless features. More room than some competitors. Only let down by no cruise co
Great little car for driving around town, and even on the highway. I had a look at the Nissan Micra (great car also but perhaps slightly less room in the boot), Suzuki Alto (way too small) and Suzuki Swift (more expensive), and settled on the Yaris for 2 reasons - more boot space than similar competitors (and you can move the rear seat forwards if you need), and the fact that the dealer treated me like a professional and not in a blokey manner like the Nissan dealer when I was looking at the Micra.
Road noise is a bit louder than competitors...(the Micra is surprisingly quiet, and feels a bit better on bumpy roads) but not annoying by any means. There are plenty of storage compartments. Centre speedo doesn't take much getting used to. We now have 2 cars with a centre speedo (Ssangyong Stavic is the other)so no big deal. Digital speedo is good. More cars need this feature. I wish the car would make a noise when the fuel gets low, as the only warning you get is the last square flashing, and if you don't look at it you won't notice. Overall, nothing special but does the job for a good price and is almost bulletproof. Low fuel consumption (not best in class but perfectly fine), low running costs (low service cost), cheap spares, cheap tyres etc. I didn't like the original tyres (Dunlop), and have now changed them for Michelin Energy XM2's. They feel like they grip better, and seem quieter too. A few cons: it's a bit gutless. No real issues with this unless you live in an area with steep hills, or if your significant other wants to do a quick overtake and doesn't understand the concept of kicking the accelerator hard as far forward as it goes and as hard as she can to force a good downshift. An extra gear would be handy (4 speed conventional auto). The other major con is the lack of cruise control. For highway driving this is almost a necessity, especially since the accelerator in this car is rather sensitive. I notice the new model Yaris has cruise control, and the interior is a bit nicer, and the road noise a bit quieter. However, the downside to the new Yaris is all the really useful storage compartments are gone. Gain in some areas, lose in others. My only other criticism (of Toyota, not the car as such) is the requirement to service every 6 months or 10000km. I ignore this, use a good quality full synthetic oil and go to 12 months and may go further. I figure if a turbo diesel can go for at least 15000km/12 months and it is much harder on the oil than the simple Yaris, why should I change the Yaris's oil so frequently? I presume the requirement is only there because most dealers and service people will use the cheapest mineral oil. Don't skimp on the oil, and service less regularly.
