2005 Toyota Avalon Sedan Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Unbelievable power and gas mileage for this size car. We always get well over 30 mpg on the highway. Quiet and smooth and has tons of leg room. Continues to look beautiful after 2+ years. No problems so far.


Best Features

Engine power, smooth ride, huge back seat, cooling seats, gas mileage is above sticker.


Worst Features

Nothing.

2005 Toyota Avalon Sedan Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned this car for over two years and have 38,000 miles plus on it. Other than the front window shade holder falling out and being replaced, there have been no other maintenance problems. This is the first car that I have ever owned that has been maintenance free. Reliability has been outstanding!


Best Features

Comfortable ride. Good gas mileage. Good audio system. Excellent reliability.


Worst Features

Get rid of the Michelin tires. They had to be replaced at 35,000 miles. Went to Yokahamas, cheaper and should last to 60,000 miles.

2005 Toyota Avalon Sedan XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Not what I expected from Toyota! Frequent visits to the dealer for a variety of repairs including replacement of the intermediate steering column, repair of a faulty air bag system (which by the way involves disassembly of basically the entire interior), oil leak, and replacement of driver side leather seat for premature cracking wear. If that's not enough, it's back in the shop once again because the faulty air bag light has come back on. I can not believe this is a Toyota. Had previously owned a Previa van that was extremely reliable. Would not recommend this car to anyone.


Best Features

Interior comfort, gas mileage.

2005 Toyota Avalon Sedan Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Exceptional vehicle, it is a solid 12 on a 10 point scale. No disappointments, just a pleasant ride, excellent performance and good fuel economy.


Best Features

The reclining back seat is the best, always earning great reviews. Long trips with the adults has improved significantly.


Worst Features

A "HUD" would solve a speedometer blind spot created by a tilted steering wheel.
