Toyota Yaris 2008: Why aren't my brake lights working?

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Oct 2019

As you can fix it by turning the car off it could be a computer problem, or something related to the computer. Take it to a mechanic and have it checked.

Best first car options?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Nov 2016

Do not buy a Cruze, or buy a European brand. They will prove costly. It's best to go for the cars that are well proven over many years. The Lancer is a good one, but so too is the Toyota Yaris or Corolla, Suzuki Swift, Mazda2 or 3, or Mitsubishi Colt.

Yaris recall urgency

Answered by CarsGuide 30 May 2016

Some dealers don't make recalls a priority because there is no profit in the work. In their defence, there can also be a parts supply backlog for a particular recall, though this is unlikely in your case if another dealer can be so prompt with the work.

First car for $7500

Stick to respected brands like Mazda and Toyota. A 2007-2008 Mazda 2 or Toyota Yaris would meet your requirements and would be good reliable cars for your daughter.

Sticking accelerator in Yaris

Answered by CarsGuide 22 May 2015

Overseas recalls of the Yaris have been for other issues. There doesn't appear to be an issue with sticking accelerator pedals here in Australia. Makes sure you haven't got something under the pedal that's causing it to stick, and make sure it's lubricated.

First car for 22 year old

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Nov 2014

Most modern cars would be perfectly fine for your country commuting, that's not really an issue like it was in the past where it was felt you needed a six-cylinder car at least to handle the long distance, higher-speed cruising. Smaller cars like the Yaris or Mazda2 are perfect for city use; they're small, manoeuvrable, easy to park, safe and cheap to run. A larger car, like the Mazda3 would be a little more comfortable for a longer journey. It would also have better performance, but being larger is a little more difficult to park, and would cost more to run. For your money you could get a 2008/2009 Mazda3, which would also be a good buy. For mine, I would go for the smaller car, the Yaris or the Mazda2.
