The sexiest car I have ever owned

I just recently purchased the 2013 Avalon XLE Touring in the Sizzling Crimson Mica. By far this was the sexiest car I have car shopped in the months leading up to me buying this car. I have never enjoyed just driving my car until I bought this car. The ride is so smooth, quiet and comfortable. I love the exterior of the car as well. It does not look it has that much room inside just from looking at it, but once you get in, you are just amazed at how much room there is inside. The car itself has turned a lot of heads when i drive down the street or just at red lights. I have had Lexus drivers look at the car as if to say, what is that??? I love it. I feel in love with the touch screen and touch buttons that are on the center console. The only disappointment that I have with the car is that when it is sunny outside it is hard to view the touch screen with the glare on it, I wish that Toyota would have brought the screen down just a bit so the sunlight would not have so much effect on viewing it, but that is not a deal breaking in my book on getting the car. I have surveyed a lot of other car brands with there touch screen and sensitive buttons, and hands down the Avalon has them beat with just how well it responds to your touch and how fast the next page will pop up. Needless to say, I love the car and everything about it. I have never owned a Toyota, but after having this experience with my Avalon I am a fan of Toyota. I bought my car through Rick Hendrick Toyota of Fayetteville, NC and the service I recieved there and continue to recieve is unmatched. If you live in the area and are thinking of getting an Avalon, make sure you ask for Sakeithia Irby. She will take care of you like she did me and she will make sure that you get what you are looking for, for the right price.

I have owned a BMW and a Mercedes for the past 17 years. I wonder when previous Avalon owners complain about the comfort. This car manages to combine the handling of my BMW (almost) with the comfort of my Mercedes (even better). And, it uses regular gasoline. The old Avalons floated and were not a driving enthusiast's car. Being a techie, I have learned how to use all of the technology in the car. Unfortunately, most people will not bother with half of them. The car is quiet, roomy, good handling and a safe vehicle. I enjoy each time I drive it and am sad when I get to my destination. I have the hybrid limited and am thrilled that I made that choice. I am getting about 40+mpg every place I drive.

Avalon Limited Exceeds Expectations

Wonderful car in all respects. Tighter ride than past Avalons I've owned and tracks much better as well. So far I'm very pleased with Toyota's efforts to make it a better handling automobile. No more "floating" down the freeway or horsing it around city streets. Great fun to drive it on either of those venues now. Be prepared to spend time with the owner's manuals the first couple of weeks, as all the electronics make it necessary to study all the functions of the various electronic wonders the car comes equipped with. A superior car overall.

My new Avalon is quiet , comfortable and fun to drive. It takes the curves well , is quick, and gets good mileage. Thoroughly modern and up to date. It's a real looker too! Love the touch controls that eliminate many knobs and buttons. Toyota really hit a home run with this one.

Another great Toyota

by from Baltimore, Md. on February 18, 2013

A quiet, comfortable and beautiful car that floats over the pot holes, glides on the highway and makes you forget that you are actually driving.

300 miles on the car and loving it. Enjoying the navigation system, blind side warning, and defensive cruize control. Cell phone charger works well with my phone and I love the bluetooth audio, picks up my songs from my phone as soon as I start the car. Have not quite figured out the remote start yet, but am learning. Good information in the operators manual and the navigation manual.

Just bought the car. Thus far I am very pleased except for a few issues. One, the trunk is far less roomy than the 2002 Avalon XLS I had previously. There are too many gadget displays, which frankly are more distracting than helpful The side mirrors are smaller than on my previous vehicle, though they are articulated. Had to give it a Reliability rating though I have only owned it a week, so the rating is based on previous Avalon. This is a very comfortable car that handle better than earlier version and has far less road noise.

Toyota's Tops

A little smaller inside than past tears, but if you're over 6'5"?. Handles great, excellent value. No fold down center seat, just a small pass through. I have the back up camera that I like. Put the keys in your pocket,get in push the button while depressing the brake and you're off. A joy to drive. How much is an L worth compared to a quiet riding car? Seats could be better, Audi's are not.Better AC than Accord. Check out the rear seat for room before buying Infiniti & Maxima. I traded a Camery and no car is more reliable than Toyota.

Great big car ride with luxury and technology. From awesome leather interior to blind spot monitor, this car has it all. Trunk holds 4 sets of golf clubs. Seating for 4 large guys. Great sounds. No trips yet but 24 mpg around town. Toyota usually has many storage areas throughout the interior. This car is lacking. Overall, great car reasonable price.
