You have a lemon. Does Montreal have lemon laws?

What other problems do you have besides the AC?
And how bad is your FE?

Sorry to hear about your troubles...you have the sedan varient? I thought ac was standard on the Yaris? Or is that U.S. models only? Well for a new car, generally gas will be worst than estimated cause the car needs time to break in and it should improve as your car breaks in, ultimately its how you drive. What was your previous car? Did you do extensive research on this car? test drives? I'm not bashing you or putting you down, just trying to search of the problems and trying to see where your coming from. Did you have any other cars in mind before you bought the Yaris? Like Corey415 said maybe you have "lemon," did you take it too the dealer or does that not matter in this case? Well again sorry and keep us up dated on this.

If it is only the a/c then that is not problemSSSS. It is a single problem which should be able to be fixed easily by service if indeed it is a problem. A/C in cars are so different. I have had some that spit out the cool air and some that spit it out after 20 minutes. The Yaris S is much better than my Scion tC for A/C.

What kind of mileage are you getting? Are you having other problems? engine? paint? wipers? upholstery? radio?

There's such a thing as taking the yaris to the service people and have them fix whats wrong.

I thank my lucky stars every day that I got the yaris. What a great car.

i love my yaris, it is a great little car, but i guess it also depends on what your expectations for it are,
when saying it is weak, you did notice that it has a 1.5l engine before you bought it, right?

Well, needless to say... I disagree. The AC in mine is fine. I'm getting killer mileage. For a $10K car, I'm pretty stoked.

I like my yaris also, the air is just fine, and it is an option to canada models, and the gas consumption is what I expected..

you think the mazda is any better? the gas will be the same, as well as the air, we owned a mazda protege,

and finally what did you expect for a car with 106HP??

Well if your bringing it in because it "let you down" sort to speak and you have a low opinion on it, I don't think Toyota or anyone can do anything about that...but if there's legitimate things wrong with it, then yes, its under warranty right? So Toyota shouldn't charge you for it. Good luck!

I've had my car for a little bit over a month now and I've noticed no problems with the power of the A/C or engine. Maybe you should bring it in and have it looked at if you are having that big of a problem, after all it is still under warranty considering it's a new car. :)

yes, standard 3 year bumper to bumper warranty will cover the AC if it isnt working properly, the only problem with my AC is that it is to cold...guess that will be a good thing when it gets up to 95^ outside

Did you test drive it before you bought it?
We tested ours twice.
So far so good with our Yaris.
It is a great little car for around the city.
I ease into the gas pedal on a light, barely pushing it and I still pass regular drivers. (not like I am trying to race or anything)

Please be more descriptive on your 'problems'. The A/C is fine in my Yaris.
Its yours manual or auto?

hey man i'd rather have a crappy a/c than none at all. my car gets 32mpg and it only keeps getting better while it's breaking in, i only have 1300miles on it so far. my girlfriends mazda 3 s (2.3l) only get 24-26mpg.

As some of the previous posters have said....

My a/c on my 07 sedan is very capable and I live in Florida, it's one of the strong points of the car in my opinion.

My gas mileage is 40mpg average.

I'm very happy with my yaris, sucks to hear someone else is having problems.

huh. strange. Sounds like you are the only person think:
1 A/C is bad
2 mileage is bad

Ok, A/C is not as great as my sister's G35 or my parent's Accord. But is just as well as other compact/sub-compact my friends or co-worker have. And you mentioned the mazda3? holy hell but that car sucks like $h!t (sorry to tell ya). My co-worker have it and it's terrible. Drivetrain wise, a/c wise, mileage wise....etc you name it (compare to my Yaris), and she pay much more than what i paid for my Yaris.
