I just recently bought an 07 Toyota Yaris?

And I would like to know more about it. Any information would be helpful.

Of course the car dealership did give me the information about it, such as mpg and stuff, but I want to know if it's good to drive in the long run, etc. etc..

    It is a Toyota so it will lack quality and not be reliable.

    You should also buy a second car so you have somthing to drive while the Yaris is in the shop.

    It has been recalled four times but all for simple things but be sure to get the recall issues taken care of. I have listed the recalls for you.
