Default Toyota Yaris VS. Honda Civic: Which one is better?

I've been looking for a new, reliable, and moderately-priced car. After researching, I think I've narrowed it down to either the 2008 Toyota Yaris or the 2008 Honda Civic sedan.The Honda Civic is about 3 thousand dollars more expensive (the Honda is about 15 K an the Yaris is abour 12 K), but I've owned Hondas in the past and they are very reliable (so I think that's why I'm a little biased). However, the Toyota Yaris has gotten really good reviews (and I'd be saving a pretty penny), so I'm open to getting one of them over a Honda.Does anyone have any experience with either car? Please let me know how they are in terms of quality, price, MPG, etc... I plan to own this car for MANY, MANY, MANY years, so reliability is a must.Thank you to everyone who answers! :]Sorry! I forgot to add that I'm looking to get the Toyota Yaris SEDAN (Not the Liftback)

it is true the Yaris got a lot of good review but its a newer top of car model but there are a lot of differences when you try to compare them with the Legendary Civic. first the civic comes with a lot of trim, GX, LX, EX, EX-L, Si and the Hybrid. but if you are talking about the regular a lot better than Yaris. here are the reasons, its more reliable, stylish, and a better engineer car and also it power by 1.8L v-TECH that gives you 140HP and 26 mile in city and 36 on highway which is away better than Yaris, Here is Yaris overview. its comes with 1.5L 106HP what gives you 29 in city and 35 on highway. Yaris only better than the Honda Civic Sudan by 3 miles which in no big deal but its all about power, reliabity, gas mileage, comfort and style so I will go with the Honda Civic because my girlfriend got one Honda Civic Si Sedan and let me tell you. its a great car better than Yaris and better than Corrolla too but if you worry about gas mileage than you can also get the Honda Civic Hybrid but it cost a lot. trust me get the Civic you will love it but if you want to save money for gas you can go head and get the Yaris. good Luck.

just my 2 cents the Civic always looks better and has been around much longer, to me the "bugs" have been worked out since they are still making them
