Nicest Car I have ever owned

I bought my first Toyota (Camry) in 1986. I have been a loyal Toyota driver since. This is my 6th Toyota in almost 30 yrs. I traded my 2012 Camry XLE Hybrid, for a 2014 Avalon Limited Hybrid. This by far and away is a smoother, quieter, and most luxurious Toyota I have ever purchased. Other than a slightly smaller trunk than the Camry, (for more leg room in the cabin), I have not one complaint. Great gas mileage, great get up and go power, when needed. Beautiful interior ,and exterior. The cockpit has everything a person wants. Mirrors are heated, and has blind spot protection. Cabin has air conditioned/ heated seats all the way around, and a great sound system. The back window curtain is a wonderful addition to keep the cabin cool, and Texas heat out. The Avalon comes off the same line as the Lexus, but a lot cheaper. I would recommend this particular vehicle to anyone. Great job Toyota.

We recently purchased the Toyota Avalon Hybrid Touring after owning 2 Toyota Priuses. We loved the Prius and it's economy but wanted a more comfortable vehicle for longer trips. After 6 weeks, we're very satisfied with the performance and comfort of the Avalon. We're still learning to use some of the technology but love that the screens are so easy to read versus the Prius. We, also, appreciate the safety features especially the blind spot lights on the outside mirrors. We like the interior finish and feel it gives a feeling of luxury--also, how quiet the interior is. So far, we've been getting around 40 mpg in the mountainous area in which we live. We've driven it on 125 mile trips to Atlanta but haven't yet taken any long road trips. We look forward to many years of reliable service.

After having 3 Camrys, decided to go for a little luxury in buying the 2014 Avalon Hybrid...just a superb auto..looks exceptional, handles beautifully, and on my first long trip, after I filled up on I-81, it gave me an average of 41.7 miles when I arrived at my destination in Woodbridge, VA. I'm hoping it is going to give me a very, very long (at least 8-10 yrs) trouble free service.

Bought a 2014 Certifed Toyota Avalon Hybrid

Great car, seriously. Every accolade is deserved. This is NOT your grandpop's Avalon either. Sleek looks, nice finishes and it performs as well as advertised. As Toyota's premium car, I'd compare it to an entry level Lexus, at a fraction of the cost. This is a full size ride that offers all the protection of a larger car, yet gets an astounding 40 MPG. The tech is well designed and it rides comfortably. Love the blind spot monitor. It's great safety feature that complements all of the other terrific safety features this car offers. The synergy drive system is completely seamless. We had a Prius prior to this car and loved it as well.

I did hours of research online and also test driving cars before I gladly chose this beautiful wonder. I needed a new car as my ford fusion was getting on my nerves. I considered several cars, even cars in different classes such as the Honda Accord; Chevy Malibu, Impala, and Volt; Nissan Altima and Maxima; Audi A3 and A4; BMW 3 series, and even the Mercedes Benz CLA and C-Class. I finally decided on the Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited. Part of my decision was influenced by my friend that has a 2006 Avalon with nearly 225,000 miles on it and hasn't had to take it to the shop outside of regular maintenance. For the price, it was the best out of the competition in regards to standard features, gas mileage, performance, comfort, quality, and value. I also considered the Lexus ES350, but they seemed really similar, besides the heavier price tag. This car is amazing though. For short trips to the grocery store, I can run it in EV mode, and not use a drop of gas! Or to show off to my friends, I throw it in sport mode, and have a blast! This car is also very stable and quiet at highway speeds up to 80 mph. I haven't driven over 80 mph, so I can't say much about it past that point. Can't say anything about the longterm reliability of this specific model year yet as I only have about 6000 miles on it thus far. If I had to buy another car, I would go to this car, or even the Camry, likely hybrid, in a heart beat. And, I no longer fear gas stations. I tend to drive conservatively, and have a current lifetime gas mileage of 43.5 mpg, which is completely amazing, seeing as getting 25 mpg in my Fusion was considered good. Also, ToyotaCare prepaid maintenance is awesome, and can be used when bargaining for this beauty, hint hint.

Traded a 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid for the 2014 Avalon Touring Hybrid and won't look back. Love the sound system, navigation, blind-spot monitoring, backup camera and leather seats. Haven't used the Sport option yet, but the softer ride vs the Camry's ride is nice. Styling is sexier than the Camry, too.

Bought my Avalon Hybrid Limited in May 2015, loved the color, dark crimson mica or something like that with the electronic package. Car drives fantastic, handles well, great mileage 37-38 on a long trip thought hills and avg speed 75. Seats are very comfortable, lots of leg room, head room, quiet ride. Had a Cadillac before and liked the remote opener which set the car up for me or my wife depending on which remote was used. I have to press the one or two button to get my presets for mirrors and seat. Outside temp indicator is a very small number on the right side of the center panel, hardly readable, but I have two indicators as to which direction I'm headed. The seat heater controls are on the drivers side of the arm rest and if the passenger (my wife) needs to adjust her side, she has to knock my arm off the rest to get to the knob. The "fill gas now" alarm goes off way to early. When it said to add gas soon, I did and it only took 14.5 gallons in a 17 gallon tank. I know, picky, picky, but this is the Limited edition model and should have these small things addressed. Such a nice car and I get annoyed by these small things constantly. Braking is great, love the blind side warning, but get so used to it, that when I drive my other car without it, I get lazy! Backup camera and parking control is fantastic. Trunk on the Hybrid is a bit smaller than the regular Avalon, but is OK. Service has been great at our dealer, Only at the 6 1/2 month mark and have over 12,000 miles, (some long trips down south). Looking for a luxury car at a reasonable price, pick the Avalon. It's not a Cadillac, but then it doesn't cost like one either. (It could be just as good, with a few changes)
