New Avalon … 25,000 miles later
By Skip on
2008 Toyota Avalon Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Well 25,000 miles later, I still like the car. I don't love it, but very close. It's a huge step up from my 2008 Camry (which was a great car, just not comfortable enough on the long trips). I'd like to see the finish get tougher in the newer models. My paint seems very easy to scratch. Stock tires are getting near replacement. Most folks who ride in the car... love it! I will have a trip coming up, where we will have 4 adults and we'll be putting on 3,000 - 4,000 in the 2 weeks vacation, and then folks can tell me what they think of the car. I WILL be looking to trade it at the end of the year, as I will have somewhere between 30,000 - 40,000 miles on it. 2010 Avalon, time will tell.
- Heated Seats - Headlights - Trunk Space - Overall looks of the car
Fix the front seats! The leather is sewn as such, that the seams hit my legs in areas, that put them to sleep, and or worse yet, just plain hurts when driving any great distance. - Fix surging when pressing on gas pedal - Make quieter at highway speeds - Make finish tougher.
