2009 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


When shopping for our car, we researched the purchase for a good year. We took into consideration our age, our abilities (and disabilities), cost, maintenance costs, reliability, etc., and came to the determination that this was the best car for us to purchase. The 8-way power seats both driver and passenger were a must for us, and love the fact that both of us can maintain max comfort possible. When the wife's back is really hurting, she wants to go on a road trip, or just sit in the car to get it settled down! We get 26-28 MPG in town, and up to 34 MPG on road trips. The Limited with AC in seats was hard on the wife's knee replacement but wasn't worth the cost to get laser cruise.

Favorite Features

I love the JBL 6-disc stereo system (but a little loud for rear-seat passengers), 8-way power seats driver AND passenger w. lumbar support, good handling, smooth ride, almost flat cornering on curves, quiet ride, more than plenty of power for steep mountain hill climbing, and dual AC controls.

Suggested Improvements

PLEASE allow the optional laser cruise control on other than the Limited version! Rear seats comfy, but stereo too loud for passengers. Need to be able to adjust speaker balance easier. Wider armrests on doors would be nice added feature-just a little narrow. Blind spot on pass. side noticeable.
