09 Replaces our 05 Avalon
By StlMo on
Vehicle
2009 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Review
Our 05 Avalon Ltd was totaled with 50,200 miles. Was a great car and wife wanted a new on just like it and dealer found one that at my request excluded the nav and laser speed control. These were features we had on the 05 that we didn't really like. With 1,000 miles so far the 09 is quieter. The 6 speed auto is smooth and the already good fuel economy is even better. The 05 could attain 32 highway, and on our first road trip with only 300 miles on the car (added 240 more miles on the trip) we got 33.9 mpg generally driving 70 mph. I also think the front end is now better looking, particularly the fog lights.
Favorite Features
We love the Bluetooth although as with the prior car's nav system the voice recognition sometimes has trouble with our midwestern non-accents. As with prior Avalon love the backseat room, the rear window shade, and the pushbutton keyless start.
Suggested Improvements
Still can't reset the MPG computer at when desired; still only resets every fill-up. The JBL says it has TEXT available but seems to give you less than even the 2005 did. Liked the lighter wood trim we had before given the ivory interior but that is just our preference.
