An Excellent Vehicle
Pros: MPG, interior size is excellent relative to exterior dimensions.
Cons: Needing a front wheel bearing at 34k miles.The vehicle is comfortable and reliable. It's great on long trips. Blizzak tires in the winter cut down on fuel economy by 2 or 3 mpg, something I anticipated. Ethanol in gasoline cuts down mileage perhaps 6 to 10 percent, something that affects every driver (meaning that we are all subsidizing the ethanol industry with reduced mileage).
INEXPENSIVE TO DRIVE
Pros: MPG ~ 32
Cons: ROOMINESSI switched from a minivan to my Yaris when gas prices went their highest several years ago. Good move - from that aspect.
Seven years with no trouble
Cons: No problemsThe reliability is what's important to me. Every day for seven years, I turn on the ignition and the car starts perfectly and gets me where I want to go.
Terrific vehicle. No problems

Cons: gas mileageGas mileage an issue
Pros: the room, the ride, the reliability
