Thanks.

Up to 23 cars now, so the Yaris will be in the surveys I send out tomorrow. A few more wouldn't hurt...

Those of you who have signed up, thanks, I appreciate it. It's probably too late for solid numbers in May, but in August it should be possible to see how the Yaris stacks up against the Fit and Versa.

7,000 miles and runs like a gem. I love this car. Went through a whole winter with it and it handles and does better than my 4 wheel drive tacoma truck.

Complaint... signed up... but u dont have Canadian models.

Mine is a 4 DOOR Yaris Hatchback... LE (so one model above the base).

Anyway you will add Canadian specs to your site in the future?

There are two places to input cars, one for the main reliability survey and one for the other surveys. The first only asks for general powertrain and bodystyle info--on a one-time supplmental survey the first time you complete a odometer report--so you'll be able to identify your car as a hatchback there. I set it up this way so anyone, anywhere could participate in this survey, which is the critical one.

The second input form used for the purely voluntary surveys does ask for trim and such, with model-specific powertrain and trim info. I do only have U.S.-market cars in there right now, but can add others as needed. So far I've only added a few non-U.S. powertrains. Sounds like I need to also add some non-US bodystyles. This will require a bit of programming work, so I cannot do it right away, but will get to it within the next few weeks.

the CEL was going on and off when the cam sensor was failing. i took it in and they reset it to see if it would come back on. it finally did and i took it back and they put in the new stuff. it took a week to get parts though.

as for noise, there was none that i noticed...

strange, I have a noise from the engine I noticed sitting inside the car over the weekend. Sounds like valve lash but cant imagine thats the case. I have to honestly say though I havent had a chance to even pop the hood to try and have a listen.

I had the same problem, got it replaced at around 40k. Noticed before they fixe it that will in first gear and release the gas I would get a bit of a whirring noise.

Just a reminder: for your car to be included in the analysis, it's necessary to join the panel. I can't just input info from the thread, no matter how informative these posts are.

The main survey only asks about problems going forward. But the site also collects repair histories and fuel economy data, though these are not required of panel members.
