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


Review

The drive quality is great, except for the rear visibility when backing out of a parking space. Tire noise is a major problem if you buy a low quality tire like Good Year. Engine noise is no problem, I think other people think the noise is from the engine, when it is actually the tires. Paint is very thin and of poor quality. Just make sure you keep it waxed regularly. I have 45,000 miles so far with no problem. Oil is changed on time with synthetic and rubber is lubed with 303.


Best Features

Reliability, ride and comfort.


Worst Features

Paint & more insulation for body noise.

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


Review

Bought this car because of the Consumer Reports ratings on reliability and its reasonable price for a Lexus-like ride. It has been a pretty good car. I've felt the transmission hunt when rapidly accelerating (like 1000's of others) but it has not cause a problem. Hood paint is marginal. Gas mileage exceptional. Comfortable interior. Would definitely buy another but would look at the Nissan/Infinity models also due to the transmission slip issue.


Best Features

Reclining rear seats. Telescoping steering wheel. Steering wheel controls.


Worst Features

Smoother shifting transmission. More coats of paint (thicker mil). Rear bumper protector. Eliminate the cassette player and install a GPS or storage hutch. Remote start. Keyless start.

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


Review

We purchased a 2007 Avalon new in the spring of 2007. This was our first Toyota. It was a great car. The back seat had a limousine feel to it. Got great gas mileage. Never had a problem with it. Because of the safety issue with the accelerator we sold it. I would definitely buy another Toyota but will wait until the dust settles.

Review

This is the most disappointing car I've ever owned. Although it's comfortable, quiet, roomy and has a great stereo, it's had 3 recalls. Other than the notorious gas pedal problem, it also has a recall on a defective oil supply line going to the valves. If this bursts like mine did you may very well destroy your engine and the only warning you will get is the sound of your engine seizing up! The transmission is jerky but no recall for that yet. If you already own one of these cars, call your dealer NOW and tell them you want the oil supply line replaced at once (for free) or you'll be very sorry. They will not warn you about this problem ahead of time by sending you a letter so call today.


Best Features

Fuel economy, exterior appearance, stereo.


Worst Features

Dashboard doesn't line up with driver door panel. Address quality issues.

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


Review

This is my 2nd Avalon (first was a '98 XLS) and have been disappointed in quality. AC hose clogged at 35k miles, soaked & ruined the carpeting; oil line broke (28k miles) and I lost all engine oil on the road. Added oil to limp into the dealership. Engine noise (ticking exhaust) makes it sound like an old Chevy. Paint quality is average. I want my '98 Avalon back!


Best Features

Looks nice, ride is smooth, MPG is great, and interior is roomy.


Worst Features

MP3 input; folding side mirrors; better paint quality.
