keep me updated if anyone finds out the cause of the rattling of an automatic yaris in reverse, my yaris has less than 2000km on it but rattles like a mofo when in reverse . . . . . like a splinter underneath the fingernail . . . . . .

Okay guys, just came back from service. Rattling noise is from "poor fit of a/t cable bracket at firewall" Fixed by "insulated bracket with silencer kit"....well one thing fixed.
The humming at hwy speed...the technician said it might be the resonance from the engine and the exhaust system, however, there was not much he can do now unless there are more ppl making the complaint and toyota will issue a service recall or something.......

WELL I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD GET THEIR YARIS ON HWY SPEED TO SEE IF THEY HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM

Thanks for the info. Has the dealer explained why the rattle occurred only when the car was in reverse gear?
As for humming at highway speed, I have not noticed any yet but I will pay more attention from now on. If I hear any, I will let you know. The car is not too quiet on highway anyway.

With my stock tires/wheels I have no problems at highway or any speeds. I have a little vibration going onto the highway when my Toyos are cold which quickly disappears.

I will pay attention to the steering wheel and let you know my observation in due course. May take a week or so. Really no impression right now about the hum and vibration described by you. My car was delivered in mid-Oct 05. May be the problem had been dealt with before it was delivered.

I drove about 45kms on highway yesterday and did not notice any unusual humming noise. There were no abnormal vibrations at the steering wheel too. I am beginning to feel lucky.
NB-I had my windows closed and tire pressure was at 33 lbs psi all around.

Did anyone else bring their vehicle back to the dealer for the noise while reversing problem? I'm wondering, if I mentioned to the service rep about "hearing some rattling from the front when I put into reverse gear", will they know immediately there's a TSB out there for this? I don't want them to say "it's normal for a Yaris, you shouldn't expect Camry quality there..." blah blah blah...

Thanks!

Dammit, after roughly 2100 clicks my Yaris start making noise that it have not before. I have no idea why, could have been the freezing rain last week. Gotta bring back to shop for check tonight.
Noise such as:
apply breaks -- like marbles juggling
front glove department -- ticking noise
gear change -- clicking noise that WAS NOT there before..
however, i did not hear anything 'unusual' for reverse.

Actually I have one new squeak noise to add to the list...

Last night it was very cold in Toronto, and I set the fan to level 2, and I was in a plaza's parking lot waiting for parking. Then I heard some squeezing noise like those you found on old beat up cars, I did not notice that was from my car. Then after a while I finally figured the noise is actually from my car, then I turn off the fan and then back on again, the noise is gone. Wondering if the fan motor needs some oil already?

it seems to be a common prob with all small engines... not sure why myself but im guessing its the revving of the engine since only one cylinder is goin through its pwer stroke at a time my truck (2.4L) does it too it must be the number of cylinders thats why motorcycles have such high and sometimes vicious shaking even at higher revvs

From the description it sounds like it might be the fan belt getting itself out of place.

You would figure working at a dealer this would be looked after, but as an employee my car always comes in last and its tough to get it in to be looked at.

S.
Tell them how crappy of a job they are doing. Allright... So don't say that... But hey... This is one of those things where I say "You get what you pay for." That's the only explanation for that, that I can think of. Manufacturers are thinking "The bang for the buck." When most people look at a car they consider looks... They don't really care how things work... And manufacturers know this stuff... If it looks cool, it has to be awesome, right? Cars and the materials that they are being made of aren't so strong as compared to the vehicles in the past, though they make them look all nice... There are bound to be few a rattles from that stuff inside... No big deal... As long as it doesn't sound like you whole cars is going to fall apart... Toyota seems to be one of the companies that uses slightly better materials in their cars than it's competitors, so it could be worse... And remember... This is one of the cheaper cars on this side of the spectrum... That's not to say it's no good, but it sure isn't a Lexus. And the car is also breaking itself in... It's brand new... It has to get use to running, so noises you never heard before, are going to appear... As long as they aren't out of the orindary... Don't second guess yourself though... If it sounds bad, take it in.

Yes, I agree. At this price, a little rattle and harshness should be expected. However, I will check out with other members first to see if they have the same kind of problems before I decide whether to take any action. If they don't, I will be more concerned. It is wonderful to be able to "listen" to different views from different members on this forum.

Sorry gang but I disagree! Yes it is the cheapest Toyota but it still is a Toyota, in my opinion one of the best built cars in the world. It still costs 20K all said and done and there better not be anything wrong with it! Including squeaks and rattles. If a dealer hopes that he can brush people off with an excuse, well there just are no excuses for a new car under warranty! My Yaris is solid as a rock and if it wasn't there would be sh-t to pay!
