Our 04 yaris was heavily rusted underside and I only recovered the situation by a lot of work and underseal, now all ok. There have been many posts here about terminal rust on Yaris 2000 - 2008 years. The mechanical bits can be fixed relatively easily but rust in the rear suspension mounting areas are difficult to weld properly and could be terminal. I think you need to look at the MOT history to pick up any indications of structural rust-better still get underneith yourself. Good luck with it.

This car looks really good, check for rust underneath, and general check on used car while buying. If you unsure get the car to a garage to do the checks for you. Service history sometimes means absolutely nothing, many cars with full service history are crap, and many without are in excellent condition. Good luck πŸ‘πŸš—

The only risk of buying a Toyota is to change your mind last minute and go and buy vw. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸš—
