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


Review

Had since Feb '07, traded in an '04 Avalon. More aerodynamic design, MPG amazing. City 22-23, mixed 25-26, pure highway 29-31, one passenger. Traction & stability makes quite a handling difference, will never have another car without. No mechanical issues except washer hoses, too. Huge inside yet hardly larger than a Camry outside. A living room on wheels that gets small car MPG!


Best Features

Rear sunshade (also good at night when semi lights are just the right height to blind), turn signal mirrors, ability to shorten/lengthen drivers seat cushion. Heated/cooled seats are nice but they don't seem to be as cushy as regular seat cushions.


Worst Features

Hate, hate, hate auto climate control, but turn signal mirrors only available on the Limited which only comes with auto climate - grrr.

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


Review

Rated it very low. Handles badly (follows ruts in highway and drifts around on highway). Headliner not attached in rear. Paint so soft the wind scratches, it seems. Electrical switches work sporadically. There is an undiagnosed rattle on the passenger side in the front. Makes you wonder if you take a trip, if you will get there or not. Reliability is scary.


Best Features

No key entry, pushbutton trunk open, puddle lights, large storage areas, stereo, auto windshield wipers


Worst Features

Rear window wipers, paint hardener, better workmanship, better positioning for plug-in for phone charger, etc. Side pockets clunk when opened and closed. Better handling ride.

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


Review

Bought car for wife. She could not drive in Houston traffic. The car is still in "like new condition". The car drives like riding on a cloud with warm and cool front seats tempture controls, power tilt/slide glass moonroof.


Best Features

Interior comfort luxury driving condition and fun to drive.


Worst Features

This is a full size luxury designed car, that it would be hard to think of any improvement would be needed.

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


Review

I bought this car after doing a lot of research and was initially quite happy with it. Over the 15 months that I had it, it was in the shop twice for rattles, and twice to have the oxygen sensor issue fixed, for a total of about 7 or 8 days without the car, most was related to the sensors. It had another annoying rattle in the dash when I got rid of it. These may have all started after I had XM added to the car, but that doesn't make the rattles go away. I traded it in for a non-Toyota vehicle after 6500 miles.


Best Features

Great on highway and other smooth roads. Nice sounding stereo, comfy seats, good gas mileage for a car this big.


Worst Features

Too much road noise for a car of this price. Location of 12 volt outlets is very poor (I bought extensions from Radio Shack). Install satellite radio at factory. Change ugly blue display on dash.

Review

Fantastic vehicle for the price. Power and economy are much better than my previous Cadillacs. 12V power outlets need to be better placed and memory stearing wheel needs to be added on entry and exit. We have had a problem with the windshield washer reservoir leaking fluid on two ocassions during the first year. The hose keeps coming loose from the reservoir. This is an extremely quiet vehicle that gets 27+ mpg on the road and 22+ all around. Fun car to drive and the ride is as good as anything on the market.


Best Features

The air cooled and heated seats are great. The leg room in the back seat is exceptional and the reclining rear seats are a hit for passengers on long trips. The rear sun shade is great in the summer months.


Worst Features

Add individual tire sensors readings instead of one warning light for all four wheels and move the power outlets to a more convenient place. Memory steering wheel should be added for a vehicle in this price range.
