Our first lemon
By guy on
2007 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We are very disappointed in this vehicle for many problems. First the air bag light came on and it took the dealer 5 mos to get repaired. The car tracks to the right and the dealer took 7 mos to repair after repeated denials of a problem. The problem apparently was caused by being lashed down too tightly while being transported. The transmission is jerky, slips and clunks at times. The engine is loud, apparently w/o adequate padding. Visibility while backing is poor. There is a glare on the ample dash. The remote start must be operated perfectly for it to work. Don't hold the push start button or else it will crank down, just tap it. You have to slam the trunk to close. Good luck.
The Avalon ride is excellent here with our poor highways. The seating is very comfortable. The heated/cooling seats are nice. The remote start and the pushbutton start are nice once I learned how to use it.
More sound padding. Improve the visibility to the rear. The tinting could be a little darker.
