"As long as you don't drive on the freeway, this is a great car. Its too old and unglamorous for anyone to want to steal it. It drives well. Its just a very reliable beater. We love it since we can park it anywhere.
Its tiny and a bit of a death trap if you get into an accident.
"Simple little car that's reliable and has great fuel economy. Not a super fast car, but powerful enough to get out of it's own way. This is Toyota's entry level subcompact, so don't expect leather heated seats, Blue Tooth, GPS, and back up cameras. Fun to drive with the 5 speed manual transmission-never have driven the automatic version."
Had to get vehicle re-painted after 7.5 years (black paint surface started to wear on roof, primer started showing, but no visible rust) but I think that this at least partially due to fact that I never waxed annually and used the scrubbing brush at the mechanical car wash too often. Paint shop owner advised to not use the brush anymore and wax 1-2 times per year. I have heeded this advice since the re-paint.
Interior is simple, as is the rest of the car. To my knowledge, it only came with grey/black cloth seats and plastic trim. This model year has gauge cluster in center of dash-many people may not be used to this. Only real complaints are lack of standard tachometer in base 3 dr. hatchback models with manual transmission, lack of center armrest for driver/passenger, and lack of cruise control. I immediately bought aftermarket armrest after buying in order to make trips more comfortable, My eventual goal is to swap instrument cluster from model that came with a tachometer and retrofit with available factory cruise control now available from Toyota for this car. Later Yaris models came with cruise control (2009-2010 time frame) as standard-2007 was 1st year sold in USA.
3 door hatchback is OK for a small family (i.e. 1 kid), but you would need to move up to the 4 dr. sedan model or larger vehicle if you had a larger family. Wife and I had enough room to hold enough gear to go camping for the weekend, and a mountain bike will barely fit in the hatchback with some effort.
Great reliable car with outstanding fuel economy. EPA rating is 34 mpg city/40 mpg highway, and this is easily achievable if you don't have a lead foot. I average 37.4 mpg, with a 55%/45% estimated ratio of city/highway miles. Very few maintenance issues other than 2 minor recalls and standard wear and tear (i.e. tires, shocks, fluid and filter changes, replace rubber hoses every 5 years, etc..) for a vehicle with over 100K miles. Clutch and brakes are still almost good as new after 115K+ miles.
Not a speed demon, but it's fast enough for me. Actually fun to drive with the 5 speed transmission. I can spin/chirp the front tires if I want to, but generally choose not to in order to keep maintenance costs down. I want to keep this car for at least 250K miles or until it dies, and then replace it with a newer model. 250K-300K miles should be easily achievable if you take care of the vehicle.

"I'm getting 29 mpg in the city and between 33 and 35 on the highway. It wasn't quite as good as I expected but still not bad. I used to have an Echo which got nearly 40 on the highway, so I assumed since it had the same engine it would get the same (seeing as it is smaller and lighter), but that is not the case.
There is a ton of storage space in the car. I've been very happy with mine so far. I have the hatchback and the rear seat folds down and you can get quite a bit of stuff in there. When the rear seat is up, there is enough room for small luggage (maybe two bags).
I bought mine used and haven't regretted the purchase." Read Less
