2007 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This year and model should have lived up to the Toyota name, but sadly it is as bad as some American cars for reliability .They called it the closest thing to an American sedan, well they were right it fails in the engine after 40000 miles and continues to be a money pit for repairs, for years to come, DO NOT BELEIVE SOME OF THESE SAPPY OWNERS WHO DO NOT DRIVE THIS CAR ANYWHERE BUT TO CHURCH. IT IS NOT RELIABLE. The cylinder coils fail and fail regularly until you need new cylinders which sadly happen at less than 100k. Toyota should step up and recall these engines for failure, instead of touting the wondrous American-like sedan. Buyer Beware.


Favorite Features

mileage when the coils and engine light aren't on


Suggested Improvements

Engine, Cylinder Coils, Cylinders

2007 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've had the XL model since Aug. '07 and have about 6500K ultra-enjoyable miles on it. I've had two Beemers and an Infinity, also enjoyed them very much, but the Avalon is special in that it's smooth, quiet, fairly ecnomical on gas, considering its size. I use regular octane -- also Plus and Premium at times. I also have found the cloth/velour seats to be very practical -- warm on cold days, cool on hot ones. Transmission-wise, it just knows when to shift for you -- it's really a symbiotic relationship between car and driver, to use that analogy. The driver's seat needs more back support, though. So, I'll rate this car as a 9-1/2 -- ALMOST PERFECT -- but then again, nothing's perfect

2007 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

So far with 11,000 miles it has been a great car, fantastic mileage on the interstate 32-34 miles per gallon at 65-70 miles per hour. Mileage drops to 30 at 75 miles per hour. Very comfortable car for long road trips Lots of room front and back seats Great car for the money.


Favorite Features

Mileage, comfort, room, fun to drive, very quiet.


Suggested Improvements

CD player ok. Radio sounds tinny, could have a stiffer suspension, brake pedal a little spongy.

Review

I had a Lexus 2005 ES 330 - not happy at all after 25000 miles, traded to 2006 Honda Accord - ok, finally found Avalon XL 2007, very very happy. Drove 1000 miles so far, I will keep this car at least up to 100,000 miles. Excellent car for the price. This car does not have MP3 cd changer or iPod input which is my strong requirement, however got Harman-Kardon gadget installed that plays iPod. I strongly suggest to test drive this car before you spend lots of money some place else. I rate this car almost 9.8, very comfortable and really fun to drive compared to my previous two new cars I bought. I drive ~20000 miles in a year and need comfortable car, this will do the job.


Favorite Features

All.


Suggested Improvements

MP3 CD changer with auxiliary input, and exterior styling.

2007 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Three weeks into our '07 Avalon and could not be happier! Smooth, silent, and getting great gas mileage (32+)! Seats the family (2 boys and 2 dogs) easily. Trips are nice and love the luxury! Probably will never own anything else.


Favorite Features

The trunk! Here's the list of what got into the trunk for a long weekend trip: 10x10 canopy, 2 camp chairs, 1 suitcase, 1 duffel, 1 cooler, 1 set of golf clubs, several small bags and a collapsed dog crate! Fantastic!!


Suggested Improvements

Cassette player totally useless. Need power plug in back seat (having two in the console makes no sense). Cup holders in back doors would be helpful.
