They are all built in Japan. I think the low stock is due to the low sales of them this year and the fact that they would rather sell you a more expensive vehicle with a better profit margin. Where in CT are you looking? I drove by Colonial Toyota in Danbury last night and they had about 6 on the lot.

It is also due to the earthquake. Toyota is just really beginning to ramp up production again from the events months ago. Plus, unless I am crazy I never really saw a lot of them in New England.

I was actually going to order a 5 door one when all the mess went down in japan. I was talking to them via email and at one point they just stopped returning my emails. I bit the bullet on a used 3 door and got an email about 3 days afterwards saying that it would probably be good if I looked at different models. they were trying to sell me on a corolla S as it had the 5 speed.

I was told that if I were to order one it would have taken me 4 months to get it. that was before all the mess with the earthquake and tsunami. not sure how long it would take now.

They very well could be spinning down production to introduce the 2012 models as well now that I think about it...that would make sense in them trying to sway you to a different car, plus they make more cash on the Corollas since the Yarii sell for very close to cost.

I was told that the Yaris is a loss-leader for them anyhow. Toyota is/was hoping to get 20 year olds into their first new (cheap) Toyota, and then hoping they will stick with Toyota throughout their lifetime.

Whats the price of a Yaris now? I heard they went up.

2011 3 dr hatch $16k average, depending on dealers/factory option(power or not plus add on accessories like armrest/bumper protection)...
and yet, it's hard to get the color you want....
polar white most commonly available...... blue seems to cost more!

My advice? Forget that electric windows, remote control. etc etc. It cheaper without it and its only gonna break and cost $$$ to fix.

I disagree. I love remote lock, wouldn't have a car without. Locks and windows may brake regardless, and will cost money to fix regardless. I've heard nothing to suggest power windows fail more frequently than crank windows. At least on the Yaris its all built with fairly easy maintenance, cheap parts and thanks to this forum and CTScott, DIY repairs are feasible.

On American stuff, power windows are a high precentage repair item.

If you own a 90's-00's Buick lesabre or Ford thunderbird long enough, you will have to replace the window motors.

I think a lot of Hyundais have window motor issues also.

This makes sense; a few years ago Mazda had a fire at their factory that produced the 2nd generation Miata. Instead of quickly rebuilding the factory, they just decided to quit building 2nd gen Miatas immediately since it was the last year of production and instead focused on the 3rd gen Miatas.

yap, it's true.but now, you don't have a choice. it's what the dealers have.
not much yaris around....and it seems there few option to choose. most are already power opt, yet doesn't comes with bumper guard, center arm rest, etc...just to maintain a low cost over the competiton.
it's hard to get a yaris without power option, since japan factory is still recovering??!..even the colors you want are NOT available from dealers.

My wife has this feature on her Camry. When we go anywhere she locks the doors. She locks the dam doors in front of our house! (where there is no crime whatsoever) So I have to wait for her (and her keys) to arrive before I can get in.

I should mention she doesnt have a remote just the "press to lock all doors" button.

I try to serupticiously unlock MY door before exiting.

But she is on to that...

We spent hundreds fixing the drivers electric window of her 1992 Honda Accord Station Wagon. Finally her brother fixed it for good.

Otherwise a worthy car. It had a manual transmission.
