Re: Need advice.
I had a 2000 Toyota Echo, which was the predecessor to the Yaris. I believe they had the same driveline. Mine was a 1.5 liter, manual transmission. Bought it in 2008 with 75,000 miles on it.
Great car for what it is. I had an accident with it at 197,000 miles in 2016. Fairly minor damage, but with the year and mileage the insurance company totalled it. Gave me a check for $2,000 after the deductible. Can't really complain about that.
Oil changes, tires, a mass airflow sensor, battery and one set of brakes were all that needed to be done to it. It just ran and ran. City / Highway driving averaged about 37 mpg over the time I had it. Easy to get around the city in it, and easy to park.
