2007 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Have had my limited for 3 weeks and put 1800 miles on it (combination of city and highway). Overall very good. Quiet, comfortable smooth ride for all occupants. Surprising acceleration. Exceptional fit and finish and quality materials. The laser cruise control is fantastic, will never be able to own another car without it. Navigation system is as bad as everyone else says it is (my primary complaint). My wife has a 2007 Yukon Denali XL and the navigation ease of use on it makes the Avalon look literally silly. No mute button on the radio is a real pain. Trunk has to be slammed very hard to close it (needs automatic tensioner). Have not experienced jerky shifts at low speeds as some have.
Laser cruise control, surprising acceleration, quiet cabin, fit and finish, overall quality
Navigation is terrible!! Need mute on radio. Trunk lid needs tensioner to close quieter and smoother. center console storage needs shelf, big hole that everything falls into.
