2019 Yaris was listed as a "Top 10" by Consumer Reports, btw.

"The iA forums are rife with premature failures.." Where?

BTW: There are not too many 2018 Yaris hatches for sale, since sales cratered for them. Toyota had to pull the plug

2020 Yaris will get Apple and Android's car programs.

They set up a special section for it, outside of their general forums. It used to be all together at one point.

And yes, Consumer Reports is a joke with regards to their car reviews, but the mainstream consumer doesn't know any better & simply follows their recommendations like the bible (surprise, surprise). Consumer Reports is more concerned with backseat/trunk space, infotainment system features/interface & how many sensor so-called 'safety features' for idiot/bad drivers a vehicle has than they are about major/core mechanical components like low/random-reliability push-belt CVT's, carbon-sludge prone straight GDI engine designs, etc. I loved how they bashed the old-school 4-spd automatic transmission in the Yaris & the tried-and-true port-injected 1NZ-FE engine, despite those mechanical systems being 100x more reliable/trustworthy than the 'more modern' CVT+GDI cars that they highly recommend such the Fit or whatever. Newer, shinier tech is always better, after all. There is a reason that the authentic Yaris hatch is a great selling car in most of the rest of the world in its segment, even if the USA market just doesn't get it. I don't blame Toyota for discontinuing it here though. Sales numbers don't lie, and our particular market is more enamored with different types of vehicles, & as much new, shiny tech-bloat as you can cram into a car (useful or not, reliable or not).

I just bought a 2019 Yaris L Sedan this morning. I think the grille looks like an angry fish--I love the Blue Planet series, especially the episode about deep sea critters.

I needed a car fast, and I am glad to have found something quickly. With a 100-mile R/T commute, also happy it only had 15,276 miles when I drove it away.
