2008 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
The car has a nice ride, but in the 6 months of ownership, the dash has several rattles, and I have noticed several misaligned panels. I wish the dash was not so far forward or large, the front seat area needs to be larger for longer trips. I love the controls, but not the gray paint of the hidden radio panel. The ride is the best feature. I drove a 2008 ford taurus recently, and the ride felt more solid and flat, like a german car, and was just as nice as the toyota. Wish I knew about that car earlier.
The ride is the best feature. I like the gauges, and the technology offered in the car.
The dash is overdone and to large, the car does not feel as spacious as its dimensions, and visibility could be better for such a large car. Rear bumper sensors are needed as well as AWD availability. A few squeeks and rattles in the dash are annoying. More pad in seats.
