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


Review

Before buying this car I heard great things about Toyota vehicles from friends and family, so I decided hey I have to get one for myself. What a joke, this car makes me sick!!! It has a very loud noise in the engine. I have taken it in too many times only to be told by the mechanic that he does not hear the noise. These guys must be deaf!!! The last mechanic told me that the noise is normal that the sound was in other cars he tested?! Transmission horrible to say the least not smooth at all. Sound system cannot be heard over noisy engine, brakes are terrible, problem with wipers, in all one of the worse vehicles I have ever owned. I can't wait to get rid of it!!!!!!


Best Features

Reclining back seats, yippy great new for passengers.


Worst Features

Get rid of that darn engine noise, lot of work needed on transmission, need better brakes.

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


Review

Best car I've ever owned (and first non-USA model, although was mfd in KY). Brakes are fantastic, economy much better than anticipated (usually >30 on hwy if driven around speed limit). I don't agree with the raps on the seat comfort: I'm pretty big and it's fine. Handles great. Have had many of the minor problems reported by others: Tranny shifting improved by TSB re-calib. Just encountered famous windshield washer hose problem. Paint issues like everyone else. Lack of fold-in mirrors inexplicable. Strongly recommend dealer installed side molding. But I still love this car.


Best Features

Brakes, stability control (which I didn't think I would like), handling, interior comfort and room.


Worst Features

Rear sightlines, paint durability, mirrors should fold in.

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


Review

I own the 2007 Touring model. The transmission bucks and slams into the next gear, I had a wheel bearing go out at 5K miles, the electric mirror adjustment button fell through the dash, tire pressure sensor stays on all the time even though pressure is right and now the sunglasses holder is broken and wont close. Don't buy Avalon 2006 - 2008 year model. Buyer beware.


Best Features

Interior, trunk space. The car is beautiful.


Worst Features

Transmission needs to shift smoother, interior components are cheap.

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


Review

At first I wasn't very impressed with the car until I drove it. It was great. My husband is over 6'6" he actually picked out the car first, he was very comfortable seated in it. Both my kids are over 5 feet all and they are between the age of 9 and 11. I am 5' 9 " I am sure the son will enjoy this car when he is 16... I hope. Thanks to my husband for introducing the Avalon. It's great.


Best Features

It is very roomy and comfort and I really like how it looks inside.


Worst Features

It's difficult to plug in my cell phone charger and it should have bluetooth capability as a standard feature

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


Review

I'm 6-2 290 with tall sons. Car fits us great. Great motor and acceleration. Averaging 23-24 daily and 29-30 highway and I'm an aggressive driver. It's very comfortable. A quiet car. Driving-small turning circle. Good daily and highway car. Not as tight handler as BMW. Trunk has good storage room. Car has great fit and finish. Cabin well laid out. Nice sound system - could have more power though. No mechanical problems


Best Features

Room, comfort, engine, mileage. Car is as room a a BMW 7 series L but so much less expensive. Nice amenities-heated/cooled seats, rear window screen, steering wheel controls, sun roof, bluetooth, rain sensor and much more. It's a Lexus without the price penalty. I much recommend


Worst Features

Navigation unit poor. Can't adjust while driving. Outdated disk and expensive to update. A good Garmin or Magellan is better. An adjustable suspension.
