Yaris Buyer Help

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

After selling my Aerodeck Vti and down sizing i've decided to get a Yaris!

I'm going to look at a 2002 1.3 16v vvti SR tomorrow which has covered 111k, it has FTSH, have you guys got any advice on what to look for when going to view the car?

any advice welcome!

Thanks

Kern

It's 11 years old. Watch for rust - around the rear .Not common but I have seen it - rear wheel arches and round suspension. . The exhaust may be clapped out if not replaced- rear boxes rust.

The OAT antifreeze should have been replaced last year - 10 year life- see the SH. (I am madf on HJ)

I'd make sure it has no water or fire damage previously.

Make sure that the powertrain is original.

I got a car with a replaced transmission and it caused me heart ache.

These Yaris are made very dependable and last a long time, If an engine or transmission was replaced, I'd be a little leery.

Good luck to you though!
