But it carries excellence and won Car of the Year Japan Award at its first production in 1998.

Toyota Yaris Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Though Toyota Yaris has two vehicle types, it has some common problems like other regular cars other than its serious clear paint and coat peeling issue. Here we collect some common problems for aiding you with diagnosing:
First, engine issues. As engine is an auto part closely related with your Toyota Yaris's lifespan, you need to be more careful and sharp at it. Based on Yaris owners' description, they frequently encountered engine performance reduction as decreased power and gas mileage, dropping oil pressure and dirty exhaust. Besides, metallic or squealing noise can be heard not to mention the illuminated Check Engine Light. Actually, these signs are warning you to check your Yaris oil filter, air filter and drive belt.
Second, suspension system failure. On Yaris, broken strut housing would cause suspension failure. However, other obvious signs on failed suspension system included vehicle titling to one side, uneven tire wear or bottoming out and bouncing. At the same time, steering wheel may pass through vibration and steering would be pulled to sides unintentionally. Then you can try looking over if your Yaris coil springs, wheel bearing or control arm go wrong. Transfer case output shaft snap ring is also an easily broken part in your Toyota Yaris's transmission system.
It is certain that other than above mentioned auto parts, many other little parts in your Toyota Yaris also need meticulous maintenance. I believe everyone knows enough of the importance of seat belt, every country is advocating buckling up seat belts while driving after all. As a matter of fact, headlight bulb and fog light bulb are equally important as seat belt because they could offer clear driving vision.
