Yaris..Better than I expected....!!!

WoW....

I have 800 miles on my Yaris and I'm just loving my new RIDE!!!

I thought I'd be compromising a little by purchasing this econo-box auto...but wow....its a fun ride and great car!!!

Its much nicer than I expected, I'm actually very comfortable in it.

Its pepier than I expected...the manual helps

Tight tight steering...very nice...corners well for what it is

Visibility is fine.....

Braking/stopping distance is very good...

Split/sliding seats are very handy

My black Yaris's looks are sleek and cool, better than I imagined when I picked my color

Interior noise is there on the highway but not as noisy as my suv is, still hear the stock sterio fine

My first tank...32mpg town-38mpg highway....trying to drive easy the first 1000-miles...but its hard!!!

All toyota mods I added were easy easy easy to do...

I'm getting lots of compliments!!!

BUT...one of my police officer patients who saw my Yaris seriously asked
" Your not going to take a date out in that ?!!!"

I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone trying to choose one...I didnt even look at the fit, versa, kia, aero etc...I love the toyota fit/finsish/quality/reliability so the Yaris was a no brainer!!!

Cheers:)

Congratulations. You'd make a great spokesman for Toyota. I liked the Yaris going in so I didn't have to be sold. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.
