New 2012 Yaris at my local dealership

Not a bad looking car.

Wonder if it states 0w-20 or 5w-20 on the oil cap for the 2012 . If anyone gets the chance to look at one take a peek under the hood to see if it remains 5w-30 and get back to us . Thanks

Not me. I'm really not fond of that flat sided bumper (amongst several other details).

It's not growing on me at all. I'm glad I bought a 2010.

The 2006-2011 Vitz quickly became a car with cult appeal. The 2012 model Vitz has absolutely none of that. Pity.

from the looks of it, it's a good thing that rear bumper doesnt look like it extends for half a mile like the 06-08's did...ugh.

I only drove it around the dealership lot. I wanted to take it on a real test drive, but I had to be at work in 10 minutes.

Storage bins gone. Generic styling. Glad I bought an '11 before it's too late.

But I do wonder if Toyota fixed the throttle lag problem and the electric steering problem.

I forgot to note that this is the base model and the sticker price is $16,000. This car didn't have power windows.

Oh jeez in all the excitement I forgot to ask the most important question of all:

Have they increased the weight? Have they made it bigger?

Compared to the Mk2 its 100mm longer and the roof height is less. Don't know about the weight though.
That dash looks like something from the 1980's!
