Toyota Yaris Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Toyota Yaris reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
First car for 22 year old
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.

Ask Smithy Xtra extended warranty for Toyota Yaris
It comes down to your peace of mind. As she only does a relatively few kilometers a year the car would only have around 30,000 km at the end of the new car warranty, and 60,000 km at the end of the additional three years, or 80,000 km at the end of the five-year extension. Not a lot really. On that basis I probably wouldn’t take the option, but you must keep up the service even though she’s not doing a lot of kays. Regular maintenance is the key to a long life of trouble free motoring.
