2007 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
I have purchased 5 new GM vehicles since 1994. The new Toyota Avalon XLS is superb so far, great handling, quiet ride, super gas mileage on 87 octane regular. The Avalon 3.5 engine has so much more power than my Buick with 3800 engine, it's sometimes almost too quick. I ordered the sound deadening package which maybe just an undercoat, but it sure rides quiet. I like the well lighted large letter display.The special oil filter valve that keeps all the oil from draining back into the pan, and the 6.4 quart oil pan should add engine life.
Favorite Features
Handling, power, quiet ride, large 6.4 quart oil pan with special valve to keep oil on top side of engine on cold starts. I will never go back to GM cars.
Suggested Improvements
Drop cassette and add MP3 or iPod plug in. Better standard tires on XLS, Treadwear rating of 260 on Bridgestone is POOR! Build more XLSes with or make standard JBL 7.1 Surround Sound 12 speaker on XLS, this is far superior to the standard JBL 9 speaker system. Hope reliabilty is good as I've heard!
