2007 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
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.
Great on highway and other smooth roads. Nice sounding stereo, comfy seats, good gas mileage for a car this big.
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.
