2010 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
This is the fourth Toyota and the second Avalon that I have owned. I have loved them all and would rate them all a 10. However, I will never buy another Toyota because of the poor navigation system. I cannot believe that Toyota would put such a poor system in their cars. (See below). We purchased this car especially because we wanted a GPS installed system.
The navigation system is very user Unfriendly! I have been back to the dealership for help a number of times and they struggle with it too. Also,the 2 outside rear view mirrors create a very bad blind spot. I miss the double sun visor that the earlier Toyotas had, it had a side and front visor.
It's Great Car with high fuel economy comparing with other same class cars. Nice, Quite, Comfort and you will love all the features. But there's minor exterior detail issues. such as top roof molding is easy to loose and hard to find a dealer for fix well. other body pars moldings are seems like little off from it's place. I checked my car and other cars on display at dealers( 3 Places), same... such as end of moldings etc. i think Toyota's quality control legend is burried in the history..
Audio, handle, very roomy inside. back seat leg room is big. separate Aircon. controls. etc.
finishing touch of details need improve. Now days can not expect like old Toyota.
I have now spent 12,000 miles in my Avalon. This a great car. I am getting 25 MPG on average and up to 30 MPG on highway. Great Power and with the manual override transmission you can really get off the line when you have to. Engine flys form 40 to 70 MPH. This car is big and roomy. I fully agree with the Edmunds Road test. They nailed it perfectly on all counts
Peppy engine with great MPG
Could go for a quieter ride but I wouldn't call it noisy. Seats don't have any contour so you kind of slide around.
