April 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
I was going to pay cash for it but got a better deal on interest free finance (money off, free servicing etc).

My previous Yaris tr 1.33 never let me down. I wanted an automatic anyway, and economy is a consideration for me so the Hybrid yaris is a perfect solution for me.

They were very freindly and helpful as they were when I bought my previous car from them.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The car is very comfortable to drive around town where most of my travel takes place. The Hybrid system can take a bit of getting used to when its your first one.

What's it like to park?
It is easy to park. The rear view camera is a boon. The overlay display lines even allow for parking the correct distance from the kerb (Saves scuffing the alloy wheels).
