2006 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Thought the new Avalon would have better handling, but it drives like my father's old Buick. The concept is great... lots of features, good price/ value, should have good reliability, but "oh what a feeling" is missing big time. Mileage is 19 to 20 in town on the road it is 27+/-. The transmission seems to slip. Dealer says it is a new 6 speed auto and is supposed to slip(?). To our surprise it is not very comfortable on long trips. Neither of us have back problems but after 3 hours our backs start to hurt. So this car will be going on Autotrader/ Cars.com soon. It will be a while before we go back to Toyota.

Favorite Features

Rain sensing window wipers, Laser cruise control, AC front seats, keyless entry and push button start.

Suggested Improvements

Tighter suspension, better transmission, better fuel mileage (we get 19 town/27 highway, sticker is 21 town and 31 highway), better/firmer front seats.
