There was a little more road noise than I expected from a Toyota; Toyota Camrys usually have very little road noise, while my Honda Accord has a lot. The price tag will lure many to the table, though. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331, or Pontiac customer service at 1-800-762-2737. Remedy Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the switch, applying a lubricant if no abnormality is found. I noticed the tops of the rear view mirrors fading and in the past year, the roof is 'crackling'.
Starting in 2012, the Yaris sedan was sold to fleets only. The seats feel slightly higher than the Corolla. The tiny iQ trounced the competition, winning with more than twice the points of the second-place finisher, the Citroen C5. If I wanted a classy, but inexpensive, little fuel efficient car, I would go with the Yaris sedan. Being a Honda fan, I was disappointed with the 1. The steering wheel is a bit sensitive to even the slightest hand movement, but that level of responsiveness gives the car some sportiness.
Model Review The 2009 Toyota Yaris small-car family consists of a four-door sedan, a three-door hatchback and a new five-door liftback. The radio antenna is roof-mounted on the Liftback and is placed in the rear window glass of the Sedan. For 2009, the biggest change is the addition of a five-door Liftback model to the lineup, which includes the three-door Liftback and the four-door Sedan. And as a side note, hopefully you will not ever need to know this but it crashed a lot better than I would have ever expected. Depending on the model, dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or the air bag assembly, free of charge. It was a pain to reach back to get a drink. Each body style is available in base and S trim levels.
So if you want things like power windows and locks, the Fit is the better choice. In the end, reason won out and I put my son in the Yaris during my week of testing. Toyota's numbers for interim notification for this campaign are G1P Toyota Zone A , G1R Toyota Zone B , G2G Lexus Zone A , and G2H Lexus Zone B. Cruise control is available on 2009 Liftback models and audio systems are satellite-capable. By the time my first commute home was done, my back hurt. After been towed away and after 2 weeks of saga with Toyota Australia, they told me the brakes are fine.
The Yaris is stylish, solid and competent. Safety A seven airbag package is part of the Enhanced Safety Pack option on top of anti-skid brakes with barkeforce distribution and brake assist. Around town, the Yaris excels as a runabout, dashing about wherever you need to go, with agile handling and the sort of responsive performance useful in heavy traffic. General Motors sent Pontiac Vibe owners an Interim letter on June 20, 2014 notifying them that parts are currently unavailable. Even the back seat can accommodate taller passengers, although the headroom is a bit more cramped in the sedan than the hatchback. As between the hatchback configurations, the Fit provides a far superior use of space.
Roadside Assistance: The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car. Yes Review Date: 3rd January, 2011 Just an update about my Yaris. Otherwise a very comfortable interior. If all you really want is a truly inexpensive new car, then the Yaris will offer reliable, efficient transportation to meet your needs. The styling is tasteful and honest. Big news for 2009 is a five-door liftback, which joins the three-door liftback and four-door sedan. The centrally-positioned digital dash is annoying and the fuel gauge unacceptable.
Acceleration is fine for what kind of engine it is, but the normal acceleration sound is unattractive, and would probably make me bring it in for inspection if I hadn't heard it in other Yaris's. Units Affected 622657 Toyota's diminutive iQ has won the 29th annual Car of the Year award in Japan, handily defeating a field of 41 contenders. Safety features that come standard include dual-stage driver and front passenger airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, front and rear side-curtain airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, plus three-point seatbelts and head restraints for all five seating positions. The Liftback's rear seat folds down while the Sedan's rear seat is fixed. That short wheelbase also lets you easily make a U-turn on narrow side streets, which comes in handy if you live in an urban area. Today's smallest models offer a lot of room, good fuel economy and surprising levels of quality for small amounts of money.
Performance By far the biggest shock about the Yaris was how much pep it had. Exterior In the realm of really small cars, the Yaris isn't that unattractive. Remedy Toyota will notify the Toyota vehicle owners, and General Motors will notify the Pontiac Vibe owners. Have only 6,000 miles on it. Send David an Hide full review.
