Best Little Car!
January 5, 2015
I bought my 2011 new and have had it for almost 4 years now, I LOVE my little Yaris! It has so many compartments, cup holders and functional spaces. The center mounted control panel took a couple weeks to get used to but now I love it and think all cars should be designed this way- I have 3 glove compartments- 3! I think it's genius and was bummed to see the newer models didn't continue this cool design feature. Gas milage is fantastic and it's a breeze to park, I would buy this car again in a heartbeat!
I also like that the seatbelt heights are adjustable, the air is nice and cool, one set of cup holders sits right in front of the vents so it keeps your drink hot/cold- that's super clever.
I am also a huge water snob and drink only Fiji... guess what? My Yaris has square cup holders!!!
The only thing I would change about this car is the gas gage... it has 10 little boxes to indicate fuel level... once it gets down to the bottom of the tank it goes from two boxes to one box blinking slowly, then one box blinking quickly... why not go from two, to one, to blinking? ...that irritates me because I can never tell if it's a fast blink or slow blink...
Otherwise, I love this car, and it is amazing! I am always surprised at how much I can pack into this too- I carried a 65" TV home from Costco in this baby- granted we took the head rests off and sat very far forward, probably breaking laws, but it fit!
