    Bought a 2010 Toyota Vios (Yaris Sedan) 1.3, A/T last July. This is my first car and will be using it for the next six year.

    about 14mpg if i baby it. full throttle gets it down to about 4-5mpg.


    i did about 95mph for around 20 miles and blew through 1/4 of a tank. man was that thing screaming, i think i was turning around 4500rpm that entire time, redline being 5200. i quickly learned that i should never do that again, untill i drop a 5/6 speed in it.

    It gets you around the corner and back again, so it is a gem in my book.
    How far do the seats recline?

    Mercedes C350 4MATIC but I'm not sure yet how it'll handle in snow, I've read good things though and I'm gonna test drive one to make sure.
