2009 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We love our new Avalon! Bought a loaded Limited without navigation or the optional cruise feature. Moved from a mini-van to a car with a lot of research before buying. Some main concerns had been ease of getting in and out of a car and also if there would be enough leg and head room for several 6'4" adults. We love the ride and comfort. Plenty of room for those long legs. I have some back problems but these seats fit me just right so no problems. Driving our gravel winter roads on snow, ice, slush gets us 26-27 mpg. Like the vehicle stability control feature. Driving on a vacation in the sunny south got us 32-35 mpg. Had the car 4 months and close to 10,000 miles already.
We like all the leg room and the college kid likes the reclining back seat. We like the smooth ride and the power when we need it. We use the XM radio all the time. It is just a great riding and driving car. So many features that are great.
My husband had trouble that when he was wearing his leather winter gloves, he would hit the windshield wiper controls when he was turning the steering wheel while cornering thus turning on the wipers.
