Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
May 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes. We negotiated hard and walked away when they would give us the deal we wanted. Within the hour they had rung and offered us what we wanted. They weren't happy, but we got the car we wanted at a very good price.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Our last car was a Yaris and very pleased with it.

What was the dealer like?
They were okay, but not so friendly when we wouldn't pay what they originally wanted us to pay.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's okay. Not the most exciting car to drive, but does the job. Always feels safe and well put together. You don't buy a Yaris to go racing.

What's it like to park?
Very easy. I thought the rear view camera was a complete gimick, which most of the time it is. But it DID enable me to park in a tiny space, only about 18 inches longer than the car. This would have been virtually impossible without the camera, so it does have it's uses.
