Toyota vs. Lexus
By Thomas Michael on
2007 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Toyota's flagship is a great car, of course there are some bugs. The heated and ventilated seats sacrifice comfort for a little cool air on your bottom. Using synthetic oil I can get 33 mpg on flat interstate. Around the mountains I average 24-28 mpg. I convinced my dealer to put some extra padding in the drivers seat and the service manager only did this because the leather had a crease in it. They refused to fix the passenger seat, so it's like sitting on a block of wood, well maybe not that bad but compared to other seats it's pretty bad. I am going for a Lexus ES 350 next time.
