I love my Avalon
By RichG on
2007 Toyota Avalon Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
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.
Brakes, stability control (which I didn't think I would like), handling, interior comfort and room.
Rear sightlines, paint durability, mirrors should fold in.
