    Default Test drove a Yaris

    Still wanting a Liftback, the dealer had a couple sedans to tryout.
    Unfortunately, Automatics. Expecting lethargy, it seemed to take off well.
    Not zoom, zoom, but adequate.

    On the highway, I was asking why the thing is turning nearly 4000 rpm while
    doing 68. "Oh, you have it in 3rd", said the salesman. So I push the shift
    lever over to the right and mentioned that I don't know how to drive an
    auto. What is with those weird stepped shift levers anyway...

    Engine is noisy when pushed, but normal driving, fine.

    What boggles the mind is the price. About 17K with all the toys it had. A
    spec edition Scion Tc is on the lot with plenty of accessories for $15.5K.

    I would go with the Corolla there is not that much difference in price or
    mileage and there is more car for the money.
