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

- Yaris XP90 Hatch YR (2005-2011)
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.

- Yaris XP90 Hatch YR (2005-2011)
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.

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.

The Bullet proof Reliability
i am a full time Uber driver and i drive hundreds of Kilometers ever day
over the period i have driven many cars , but i finally stopped at Toyota yaris
it has immense reliability i am so sure because i drive for living . i put so many kilometers on my 2012 Toyota over the past few years never had a single break down or spending other than oil changes
if you see the engine of this car Toyota uses same engine for 2002 model to 2019 nearly identical in shape that is from where reliability comes from its time tested Toyota dont tests new ...stuff in this car they use older time tested technology in this car with speed limit so low in Australia it wont be a problem in driving this car , its cheap economical and most importantly reliable even if you put it under the Abuse of Full time UBER driving

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?
