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


Review

The seats in this Avalon are terrible, more uncomfortable than you can imagine. Why would a designer put all kinds of seams in a car seat? The steering is also "hard", not smooth like in our 2003 Avalon. It feels like I'm driving a Mack truck. The radio sounds like an old transistor AM radio - tinny and poor quality. I've also had major problems with merging onto interstates from entrance ramps; sometimes I wonder if I'll make it without being rear ended by a car 1/4 mile behind me. The pick-up is not reliable. Cabin noise is very loud on interstates, mostly from moonroof. Overall, if you are a small woman who is looking for comfort and a great car for road trips, the 2007 Avalon is not it.


Best Features

Exterior design and color. Large trunk which opens easily but closes with much difficulty. Good fuel economy on highways. Easy gas cap removal and return. Air-conditioning vents have many position choices. Adequate windshield wipers. Cup holders and interior storage. Responsive cruise control.


Worst Features

More comfortable leather seats, as in the 2003 Avalon. Better quality radio/speakers. Quieter cabin - less noise from moonroof and front doors. Smoother, more reliable pick-up. Improved ease of closing trunk. Adjustable armrests for smaller drivers. Higher positioning of cruise controls.

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


Review

Just about everything about this car is great, at the price paid it should be. It does have a few shortcomings, the trunk lid closes like a piece of tin. The dealer said nothing can be done about it and the back bumper where it fits along the side is a poor fit. Overall the car is joy to drive.


Best Features

The ride is great and fuel mileage for this type of car is just great.


Worst Features

Trunk lid should have some type of self opening and closing.

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


Review

This is the second Avalon that I've owned, and the 2007 is much nicer than the 2004 I traded. Test drove Volvo S80, Saab 9-5 and Lexus ES 350. The Avalon, while not having the panache of the other brands, is by far the best value for the money. Beautiful interior, contemporary exterior and the powertrain is responsive.


Best Features

Exterior design, ride, quiet, interior room, keyless ignition, trip computer, power rear sunshade.


Worst Features

Eliminate the cassette player, add Bluetooth as a factory option or standard, folding exterior mirrors, fewer paint blemishes.

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


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.


Best Features

All.


Worst Features

MP3 CD changer with auxiliary input, and exterior styling.

Review

The Avalon is a great car to experience driving comfort. The interior is very roomy pleasant to use. Keyless ignition is OK but seems to be an answer to a question no one has asked. Exterior is pleasant but could use more classic car styling such as Chrysler has found such success with. All-in-all a great car!


Best Features

Favorite feature would have to be the steering wheel with great controls for the radio, AC, and cruise control. Your eyes are always on the road.


Worst Features

More aggressive styling.
