I hope this is of interest to someone on here as I would like to see it go to a good home.

Base spec Yaris (wind up windows, cassette player, no power steering)

1.0L

28,000 miles

Bought new by my aunt in 2000, and it has been in my family ever since. My gran, mum and sister have been the other owners. It has had a pretty sheltered life but for the last 2 or 3 years it has been used more than it ever was when it was new, and there have been no problems with it. I know everyone who has ever driven it, I think!

My sister has just bought a Passat because she needed more space, so this is no longer needed. She tells me that cosmetically it is great but with a dent on one door, which I will get pictures of in a couple of days.

Bonus early registration madness, too! The numberplate contained my Aunt's initials so she had it transferred through a couple of mk2 fiestas, several rover metro 100s, then on to this.

There has to be a lot of life left in this. Does £650 sound reasonable? 

 

Having just sold my own car I don't really want the stress of selling one as a favour for someone else, so to protect my own sanity I will leave the advert up here for 48 hrs and if it isn't floating anyone's boat I'll delete the post and get my sister to advertise it as usual.

At that mileage and clearly looked after this is a good deal for £650 in my opinion. I had one of these for my first car, they are pretty much bullet proof. Easy, easy motoring.

That looks class. I love these cars. Definately would if it was £400.

But its definitely probably worth £650.

I haven’t looked underneath it recently but I will see if I can get some pictures if anyone is interested. I think it is the kind of thing a wire brush and underseal will keep I check, but will confirm. The rust won’t be sea-related though, it hasn’t been that close to the coast.

Well it turns out my sister hadn’t wanted to admit to me that she scraped it on her gatepost after a bad day at work about a month ago. My dad then carried out an expert giffer repair. He says he didn’t use filler, just sanded it back and used a few coats of primer.

This was only a few weeks ago and the wheel arch was perfect before so there’s probably time to strip it back and do a proper job if you wanted to.

Regardless of the non insurance claim omg crash damage, that still looks a hell of a car.

Where abouts in South Wales? Asking for a friend.

They're quite good at rusting, especially the early Japan built examples. This one looks alright though.

Nice example. I remember back after the launch of the original Yaris the local newspaper ran a competition giving away a base model Yaris as a prize. I entered but didn't win. If I did then it would have been appreciated as I was leaving education and seeking employment at that time.

Mrs T is a serial Yaris licker. her first 1.0 took massive abuse and kept going, she even rolled it and kept on running for a while till it got turned off. Went on for years after that.

They are extremely tough cars. We had another one in the family which got sold a couple of months ago. That one had three learner drivers and a lifetime of abuse, and it never put a foot wrong either. I did my time driving that around, otherwise I'd be taking this Yaris like a shot. It's had an easy life.

 

I'll leave the ad up because apparently it will only be going on gumtree in a couple of weeks.
