2008 Toyota Avalon Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Proof Toyota can badge and sell any clunker. 13.6 mpg in Boston, 25 mpg on hilly I-90. I am not a heavy foot. I use premium & Mobil-1 5W30. The seats jiggle over bumps. The back doors need to be rehung. Accelerating and maneuvering make dangerous torque steer, I like the 3/4 large size and big interior space, but seats not comfortable on a long drive, even for driver, in spite of adj lumbar. I've had a lot of great cars recently, everything from an 06 Evo IX SE to a Camry Hybrid. I like big cushy cars. An old chassis and should be retired. Paint scratches if you frown at it. There are lots of goods cars out there, this is not one.

Favorite Features

interior space, exterior size and proportions

Suggested Improvements

Use previous Toyota Crown rear-drive chassis and new 2.7L four cylinder Hybrid system.
