Hi Matt

Hellothere have been a few issues with that engine to be honest so it may be better to go for the petrol version, especially as the petrol hybrid version gets the best mpg of them all - the thing to consider with that one is its only available with an automatic gearbox, which may not be to your taste What to watch out for some reported engine failures of 2011 & 2012 Yaris 1.4D-4D All 'current' Toyota sat-navs use the same software. There is a manufacturer's advisory that if customers complain about nonsense directions in UK, France or Spain and their sat-nav has Software Version: 2.8.4al it requires upgrading free of charge, takes about one hour.Recalls Recall announced of 5,409 UK registered Toyota Verso S and Toyota Yaris built November 2010 to March 2012 because a coil wire in the electric power steering motor may have been stored without the correct humidity control during the manufacturing process." This can lead to a short circuit and failure of the power assistance to the steering.
