2010 Toyota Yaris
Bought my 2010 Yaris in 2011, the dealer having used it as a Demo. It had approximately 14,000 miles on the odometer. I needed minimalist transportation to drive around Las Vegas, seldom going out of town. It has surprising power for such a small engine, and can easily exceed the speed limit on the Interstates out west (i.e., 70 or 75 mph). Highway mileage generally 36 or more mpg on regular unleaded gasoline. Due to the short wheel-base, it does provide a choppy ride--mildly uncomfortable. Relocated to a small town in Virginia in October 2014, where I still drive only 3000 to 5000 miles annually, mostly in town. No maintenance issues have cropped up, other than the exterior paint peeling, especially on the roof (that hot Las Vegas sun) which cost me $1000. All-in-all, the 2010 Toyota Yaris does what I expected when I bought it--basic transportation at minimal cost.
