New here and just got a 2009 Yaris!

Greetings Iím new here
Just picked up this 2009 1.5 L manual 3 door Yaris with 190K. Itís been owned by the same person for the last 12 years and theyíve taken great care of it serviced at the dealership. Super clean inside and out new tires. I paid $2300. What do you all think? Any advice about the 2009 range and how to keep them running for many years to come? Cheers!

$2300 Great bye and good luck with it!

How are the motor mounts? How are the spark plugs and air filter? If it were mine I would bleed the clutch cylinder yearly.

Time to check all the brake pads and renew if necessary.

After that just drive it!

Thank you this is very helpful! Iím definitely going to do some of these myself or otherwise send it to my mechanic. Especially the clutch cylinder and break pads. Plugs seem good. Just did air filters. Iím not sure where the motor mounts are. Could you enlighten me?
Thanks mate cheers!

Remove the fake plastic valve cover and grab the metal valve cover underneath it. Try to give it a good shake. If it moves new Mounts are in order.

With the engine running you can also Revit up and down and see if the engine moves a lot.

Good luck and I wish I had my old 2009 three door hatchback I gave my son!

Did as you advised and itís all good! Thanks for that. Now onto bleeding the clutch I might have my mechanic do it Iím not sure how hard it is or accessible. Iím probably going to have him do the brake pads as well. Iím new to working on Yaris but I do have experience working on older Toyota trucks.

Very interesting endeavor! I personally do not have experience with electric door locks but I understand why you may want to add one to the Yaris mine has crank windows and no power locks. Also need to manually lock the trunk. But all in all Iím kind of enjoying the simplistic Zen of this car. No need to worry about an electric window that wonít go up or water getting in an electric lock etc. iím new to this Yaris experience but so far I am liking the minimalistic Zen monk vibe that it has going on. Thatís just me though
However I wish you Good luck on the keyless entry install cheers

Itís a very practical car. Itís very easy to get in and out of and sits higher up in the air and most cars. It also has the four-speed automatic transmission which is more robust than the CVT transmissions currently offered in cars the size

If it needs a little work done at some point I would go for it. Used cars are very expensive these days and you got this one for cheap! Iíll be it it has 200,000 miles on it

Yes sir couldnít agree more and it so fun to drive! I took it to my mechanic to give it a check over and he said itís in Primo condition couldnít find one thing wrong with it. Itís got new brakes and a new exhaust I couldnít believe the condition of the bottom once he got it up on the lift. I live in the Northeast and there is barely any rust.
