Yaris SE 1.5L

  • Manual transmission
  • 1 miles

Lack of washer pump pressure makes it hard to wash windows unless driving 65 down the highway with the wind helping spread it. Tried to adjust nozzle to no avail. It either only hits half the windshield or shoots my passenger in the face if they're getting in while I'm using it. They should have put in a screen or something to help disperse the fluid other than in a solid stream. Also adjustments for nozzle should have been more fine so maybe you could adjust it more than just to the bottom of windshield or over the windshield. Not a deal breaker. Car is great. Good mileage, comfortable, reliable, safe. I would recommend buying one just maybe get creative with the aftermarket for the windshield fluid nozzles.

Yaris LE 1.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124 miles

Designed with only 1 long wiper, low pressure from the pump, would not pump high enough to reach the top of the wiper, resulting in half of the windshield would not be cleared in the Canadian winter, defrost would not be strong enough either, poor vision in the winter, this is a serious problem.
