Vehicle2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewI liked this car at first. But I cannot wait to get out of it now. All the guts are gone, plastic replaced wood, voice commands recognizes very little. My Trek is faster. Reliability it's all it's got.

Even I am getting around 35 mph with the new hybrid. I am getting 40mp on freeway but in city short distance is very low close to 30mph. Not sure why.Report it

Make sure you are driving in "D" for drive and not in the 4th gear, which is easy to do by mistake. When I first got my car I thought I was in drive, but I was in 4th and was getting close to 30 MPG. When I saw I wasn't in Drive and I corrected this, I now easily get 40+MPG on average!! You'll see on your dash when in "D" and it will also show when EV kicks on. Often even up to 45 miles per hour it will kick into EV mode. Unbelievable! I hope this helps! I am enjoying my Avalon Hybrid Limited!!! : )Report it
