When do you think a Yaris will be under 5 grand?
I mean, 40 mpg?!? I'm drooling, here!! :laughing: I'm thinking depreciation-wise, when it becomes a used car, and all. Opinions welcome.
probably now :laughing:
i just think they're the ugliest new cars ive ever seen :2cents:
at first glance I thought it looked like a new corolla
I don't know the whole deal about the dot in the commericals though
It IS a Toyota...they haven't exactly been puttin out pretty cars lately.
2-3 and half year depending on mileagr or you could probly find one that was wrecked maybemissing a front clip or something for 5 k with in this year probly
They're so cheap, and if you can afford a $5000 car, you can probably use that as a downpayment and finance it.
I wouldn't call the Yaris ugly...Not the best looking car, but far from
Seeing how in Britain the Yaris has been around since 1999, and they can be had for about 3,500 pounds, which is about $6,400...But they cost 8,500 pounds ($15,500) (new) there, and here it's $12,500 (6,800 pounds) for a new one...so in about 3 or 4 years or so lol.
I was just about to say that...is the Yaris new in the US then?....isn't it called the Vitz in some places?
Yeah, came out for 2006...But there weren't any around where I live until
Never heard of a Vitz BTW lol
Niether had I untill I played GT4 for the first time lol....I assumed it was a US/Canada/Jap thing?
What's a front clip? The Camry I drive right now was restored from a
wreck. Cars like that may run fine, but then they start having structural
problems that can be expensive to repair. If the damage seems mostly
cosmetic, though, I could get with it :laughing: It could also be a
project of sorts.
My problem with buying used cars is you can just about never count on full disclosure. The person is trying to sell it, afterall.
Pontiacfan, my take on pay now / pay later is either way, you're paying. Job security is also really not certain these days; I personally will think long and hard before ever financing an expensive item.
well just because they are trying to "sell it" in ur post above this, doesnt mean there is something wrong with it. Toyotas last forever if taken care of, and the front clip is just the front end of the car, with the motor in it, usually taken off of a wrecked car. 40mpg is nice, my toyota celica gets about 35 to the gallon, going 16 miles a day one tank will last 4 weeks
I will help you
this would be the front clip of a vw baja bug :thumbs:
basically the front end, sheetmetal, fiberglass, etc etc
Really? I think the new Camry actually looks really good.
reminds me of a transformer/lump of something melting
I understand you trust the manufacturers, but there's still the human element involved. Personally, if I were selling my car I probably wouldn't mention EVERYTHING that was wrong with it. Maybe give you a vague idea of sorts, but listing every single bell and whistle that's wrong with it isn't exactly an ad for selling the car, IMO.
well that may be your opinion, but what if i had sold my eclipse and not told the person buying it that it had a blown headgasket, i see where you're coming from though
I think they are MUCH better looking than the Echo. The Echo was just hideous, this one is at least vaguely appealing.
Is a used Prius totally out of the question? :laughing: If I'm drooling at 40 mpg, I might as well spring for 55. I only want to pay 5 grand, too. Oh, yeah!!
if you're worried about the yaris being ugly why not get a honda fit? they're ALMOST the same price, and have near equal fuel economy
A used Prius would probably be a bit too pricy at the moment...especially given that hybrid technology is still fairly new in itself!
If you want stellar gas millage get an 80's civic or accord. Honestly the yaris/fit wont be under 5k for awhile now because the just dont depreciate.

I think this (autotrader.com) would be a bit more convenient :wink2: lol
