My '05 GTO's car jack was better, and so was the temporary spare; sillythang was a spoked aluminum wheel instead of the usual stamped steel.

Overall, still much more pleased with the Yaris though.

This is half correct, the jack in left hand drive countries is under the drivers seat, but in right hand countries it's under the passenger seat.

Typical Sydneysider..........

If you noticed, my original post stated that the Yaris had the cheapest jack that had ever used. Why don't you make a list of OEM jacks that are inferior to the Yaris jack?

1990 Ford Ranger
1995 Honda Accord
2009 Accura TL

All of these jacks are the same quality or worse than the Yaris. I bet the Yaris is the cheapest car you have ever bought too.

Under the front seat!

Does anyone know why Toyota hid the jack under the driver's seat, under a very hard to remove plastic cover that well disguises the jack, rather than in the box next to the spare that already holds the tire iron and jack handle and has plenty of room for the jack? What were the designers thinking? Call AAA instead of changing a tire onself?

Uhm, maybe because its unused inaccessible space, whereas the trunk is user-accessible and useful for all kinds of things? I find that the plastic boxes under the trunk lid is great for ammunition and a tool box. If I put that stuff under the seat, it would slide out and look suspicious to a cop when I get pulled over.

they might have been thinking about an unsecured jack flying towards your head in an impact if was sat in that recess in the boot.

Those kind of jacks are for emergency use only no mater what the load capacity is.
They are for changing a tire on the hi-way and that is about it. They are not intended for any other purpose.

I bought one of these hydraulic trolley jacks for $25 to get the car up high enough to put axle stands under the car for safety when working on it. the car jack that actually comes with the car is close to useless as its so flimsy it can be dangerous.

get one of these.

And a 4 pack of these
