I looked at a 2008 Yaris today and the dealer claims that they always have noisy exhaust and rust under the hood.
I have test driven a few more Yarises and don’t remember them being noisy like this. It passed inspection, but still.
There is a lot of rust under the hood too (I am in Maine) and the muffler is rusty but the rest looked ok as far as I can tell.
Whenever I hit the gas, there is a rumbling sound, kind of Whoopie cushiony.
Trying to decide if I should get it or not. I don’t think the dealer will fix the exhaust up any more than it already is.
