My 3rd Avalon
By Hank on
2009 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
This is my third Avalon. I am still getting used to it but overall, I really like it. It has a great ride and is very quiet. The only thing I do not like is the hardness of the drivers seat. I can feel something under the padding, perhaps it has something to do with the seat's cooling feature. I have been driving around for the last 4 months with a thin quilt under me. This makes it more comfortable. Hopefully the seats will break in and I can take out the quilt. Other than that, I really love it.
Overall, it is what I expected. I loved my first two Avalons.
As with my first 2 Avalons, they come standard with the Michelin tires. These seem to last about 25K miles, at best. When replacing them in the past, I have used the Goodyear Assurance comfort tread. They are excellent and offer a better, smoother, and more quiet ride than the OEM Michelins.
