Great Value

Purchased an XLS in September to replace my 02 Civic. It feels very big after driving compact cars for 25 years. Nice ride and features but the car has a bit to much wind noise that I wasn't expecting. Would I buy it again is a maybe.

Great Value

Often called the poor man's Lexus (built on Lexus frame), this has been an outstanding road car for us. Enough engine to get you out of trouble 60-80 in a hurry. Plenty of room for 5 adults with leg room in front and rear. Other than routine maintenance, spent nothing on this vehicle. The only thing missing would be today's technology of Bluetooth, Home Link and upgraded navigation.

Best car ever

I bought a 2007 Avalon for my wife in 2009 and we still have it. This car is awesome for us. It may lack Aux input and it does have a cassette tape player, but other than that it is the same as a 2013 model. I did a side by side comparison with the 2013 model and it came out ahead of the 2013 in many categories. This car rides like it is on a cloud and the stereo is awesome. This car does not have a sports car ride as far as handling (not stiff), but the comfort is unmatched even in more pricier cars. This is the most comfortable car we have ever had and look forward to many more payment free years with it.

Big MPG in a BIG car!

Coming from Acura CL and before that Honda Accord Cpe, going to this car was a big change. I needed space in the rear. The coupes had really nice front seat areas, but the back was not so good. I researched cars with large back seats. Several cars were commonly recommended online: Avalon, Azera, Grand Marquis. The Grand Marquis was relatively old architecture and pretty heavy. Mileage around town..not so good, but probably the quietest car on the highway. Azera seemed like it was a little small and the selection in the used market was pretty bad. Avalon seemed to provide the best value, the best mpg, the most room in the back, and was great driving. This is a long car more than a wide car. The wheelbase is longer than a midsized car, so its not like driving a midsized car around corners and such. All in all, I think the Avalon proves to be a great decision for someone wanting a larger interior without a larger gas bill. My Avalon avg's about 22 in town and 29 on the highway. I needed to improve my backseat situation so I bought this car. The legroom in the back seems like it is way more than you will ever need. The seat has some division in it, but its not bumpy going across. You could lay across the back seat without obstruction. Easy three adults across the back. So far have put 12k miles on and everything has been consistent. Ride pleasure, MPG, integrity. No problems.

Met expectations but?

Bought my first used csr in 25 years, wanted an Avalon, the car interior design is mostly much above average, the placement of the cigarette lighters used for powering devices is a bit awkward, could use one for back seat, this is the limited edition so many upgrades, irritating humm in transmission, engine has good power and shifting is clean, get a low mileage car, get it toyota certified to 100,000 and drive worry free, the paint appears to chip easily, overall very pleased with this car

spacious family car

Fantastic car, like a Lexus with Lexus like features, the laser cruise control doesn't work in direct sun light and thats the only cruise control the car has, but when it works out of the sun light it works nicely, but do not think it is very economical in or around traffic. Bought an 2007 Toyota Avalon Limited which is what i recommend especially if you don't want to pay for a Lexus

Bad car, bad service, bad factory rep response

I purchased this car (CERTIFIED) from a toyota Dealer, (a customer loaner) with 7,000 miles on it and a 100,000 mile warrantee. It developed an piston slap at 32,000 mile that got increasingly worse. 2 seperate dealers told me that the piston slap was "normal" and the factory rep would not even consider looking at it. claimed "some piston slap is normal, and they all do that". Sold it to the Toyota dealer at 88,000 miles, (I couldn't take the noise) and they have it on the lot -- Yes piston slap and all. DON'T BUY ONE OF THESE CARS - dealer service as well as factory support SUCKS!!!

Best Car I have ever had

I have owned my Avalon for three years now. I use it as my commuter car when driving to location. I put approx 2500 to 3000 miles per month on my Avalon. I have NEVER had any problem with my car, and have just over 138K on it now. This is by far the best car I have ever owned. Being that I am only 32 years old, I was shocked to find out that this is considered a retirement car. It is fast, fun, comfortable, has good lines, has room for the entire family, and I can drive around Executives in style. I plan on putting at least 300K on this car before I trade it in on a new one. No hesitation, hands down, the best most well rounded car I have ever driven.
