Dislikes:
Fuel pump issues

Review:
“I love this little scooter (I average 115 mpg!), but it won't keep running in temps over 90. It's currently sitting in a McDonald's parking lot and I am NOT happy that I had to walk back to work in temps above 90.

I am going to contact Yamaha, but was told in the summer of 2011 that they were not doing anything to fix this issue; it would fall on the owners to fix. I'll update this after this all plays out.”

“Overall great quality from Yamaha.”


2007 YAMAHA C3
Milage: +30,000 miles
Likes: Smooth, comfortable ride, longer wheel base made for more leg room. Seat was extremely comfortable.
Dislikes:
I found nothing wrong. Rode my C3 till it quit at 59,977 miles. Dumbest thing they did when they discontinued it. My opinion.

Review:
C3 needs to be reevaluated and considered again. No short wheel base like the Zuma today thou. It was perfect in my opinion.”


2008 YAMAHA C3
Milage: 1000 - 5000 miles
Likes: Everything about this scooter. Mainly, it has some beefy tires, which makes a guy not look prissy when scooting around town.
Dislikes: At 4500 miles, I started to get the NO START syndrome after riding it wide open for 15+ minutes. Otherwise, no repairs and has run great up to now.

Review: Like other comments given, I love this scooter. The mileage, no repairs (to date), storage, performance - there is nothing negative about this scooter. I hope it lasts forever. I have a 40+MPG Chevrolet Sonic turbo, a 20+MPG Ford Ranger, a 100+MPG Yamaha C3, a Trek bicycle, and my two legs. It's great to have choices - example; need a package of screws or Scotts 5000' turf builder from Home Depot 3 miles away - I usually pick the C3.

My first summer (2009) I drove it to work from Northville MI to Detroit. The "Oil Man" can pick someone else’s pocket! I added a windshield so I'm only getting ~105MPG. One last thing - here in Michigan, this is a "Motorcycle". Two-pronged law here - scooters/mopeds cannot exceed 49cc AND exceed 2.5hp. (C3 has ~3.8hp).”

Review:
“Just purchased two C3's as training tools for my wife. She has been wondering whether she would enjoy riding...she's hooked! We selected the C3 BECAUSE of the different styling and the Yamaha rep.”


2008 YAMAHA C3

Milage: 1000 - 5000 miles
Likes: Durability and heft
Dislikes:
That they stopped making them

Review:
I have all good things to say-bought when gas spiked in ’08 and have loved it ever since. Regional errands, to work and just for fun. Great storage, smooth ride and very economical. I will probably get another one to put in storage and use later this decade.”


2009 YAMAHA C3
Milage: 1000 - 5000 miles
Likes: Good milage, Good looks: retro to Cushman box scooter of the 50’s
Dislikes:
Nothing

Review:
“Fun scooter to ride. Saved me lots of money. I bought to ride back and forth to work. I am in my late 60’s - too old for an m/c but not too old for the C3.”


2009 & 2011 YAMAHA C3
Milage: 0 - 1000 miles
Likes: Everything so far
Dislikes:
Nothing so far

Review:
“I have 2 Vino’s , 2 Ruckus, 1 Metropolitan and 2 C3’s. My wife and I both like the C3’s the best. If there was something to complain about on them, it’s that unlike the Vino, there is no little compartment to put things like drinks or a camera. That’s my wife’s little concern, not mine. Mileage is just what they say (a little over a 100 mpg).”
